"Excellent camp- good but not top safari"
But as at Lagoon feeling that you fit into Kwando routine rather than individual experience. Guides very friendly and knowledgeable but again focus on big things rather than making all sightings an event. If stopped then guides very willing to explain but needed to be stopped again next time. Improved after we talked to Management about this.
Realise Guests put lot of pressure on Guides for "big things" but need to be sensitive to all clients interests. Kwando need to work on this." See all these reviews: 7n in Zambia; 6n in Botswana; 2n in Namibia; 2n in South Africa
"The death of an warthog"
The food and all services were outstanding.
We saw many lions (3 lionesses and eight cubs in Lebala), plenty of buffalos, wildebeast, different antilopes, countless elephants, a leopard and our favorite - the warthog. The most spectacular event was also a little sad for us - the lionesses killing a warthog in Lebala." See all these reviews: 8n in Botswana
The 'tents' at Kwara are new and very smart, whilst at Lebala they are older and a bit tatty in comparison.
The only slight hesitation with Kwando is that all camps seem to serve the same meals on the same day each week. so anyone doing 3 or 4 Kwando camps would spot this. The food was always good and more than enough, so it is a very minor issue meant to be constructive." See all these reviews: 10n in Botswana
"A luxurious camp"
We thought our guide did us well on game viewing despite not appearing to be the most informative and outgoing there. However the Americans that we shared our drives with made some complaints about the guide and were slightly difficult to get along with. However we saw the local group of 4 male lions, various antelope, some birdlife and also tracked and followed a male lion calling to his friend. Although we did see a couple of elephant herds 20-30 strong, I was disappointed not to see the larger herds that I had read about on these open grass lands.
Our tent verandah was below a sausage tree which had previously dropped a fruit that had torn the canvass canopy and broken the timber deck. Sitting on the verandah during siesta time could therefore have been more relaxing had the canvas been repaired!" See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia; 5n in Botswana
