Guides are interested to make your stay a great experience." See all these reviews: 14n in Botswana
We went on our first wild dog chase at this camp which was so exciting, fortunately we did not see the kill! Just amazing watching these animals pick up a scent and follow their prey to the bitter end. Super game drives: saw large herds of elephants, was mock charged by one; hippos and saw the cats: leopard, lions and cheetahs.
Chard and Doreen who were about to take managership of the camp were wonderful hosts. They are going to make this a super camp. Fortunate enough to see a baby tsesebe being born! Good food once again" See all these reviews: 9n in Botswana; 3n in Zambia
"Amazing Kwando safaris - Kwara camp."
We think Kwara as a camp stood out over the others due to the view from our room, the camp and lookout town. Lazy afternoons were spent watching hippos in the lagoon and elephants, baboons and impala wander past." See all these reviews: 8n in Botswana
"Kwara Camp review"
It has been under various temporary managers for a year. In March it was an excellent training manager. Whilst we were there a new management couple arrived. They are very experienced and had been given the job if they wanted it. They were absolutely over the moon about the place (especially their accommodation). They took over the day we left. We spent quite a lot of time with them and talked about various improvements. I never got to grasps with their names but the lady after day one had five pages of improvements they were going to make.
Everything we mentioned she had already noted. We can't give everything excellent but the staff, the food, the service and location can't be faulted. Our guides were very good but didn't seem to be doing very much tracking. All the other guests very very happy." See all these reviews: 13n in Botswana
We had a perfectly nice time at both camps but felt Anita and Lloyd were just waiting to go in five days time as they were there on relief work.
The guides were very enthusiastic and we had wonderful game drives. Irritating that we had to ask them to change time of transfer flight as otherwise we woudl have missed our game drive that morning and not seen the cheater hunting and kill! This is something that the camp manager should sort out automatically" See all these reviews: 4n in Botswana; 4n in Zambia
"Kwara Camp review"
We were at Kwara when Independence Day came about and we were touched by how the staff included us in their celebration of their holiday. It was quite festive.
To be honest, I think our stay would have been perfect if it were not for two things--
1) a fan in the sleeping area of the tent (all of the other camps we stayed had fans to circulate the air-- VERY helpful to endure the heat during siesta).
2) a leopard sighting! ;-)
Overall, a truly memorable experience!" See all these reviews: 13n in Botswana
"Life changing entry to the safari world"
Being able to go off the tracks meant we had one morning where we saw a lion, 4 cheetahs and two leopards in one morning. We couldn't believe our luck. Anita and Lloyd running the camp were doing a brilliant job of making us welcome. I was a bit nervous to begin with, as the nighttime noises sounded a bit threatening, and the care the guides take meant I remained aware of the dangers, but I grew more and more confident and enjoyed it so much.
We were treated to a dance and song at one point by a whole group of staff- that was an extra special treat we enjoyed.. The food was amazing, and Anita even managed to organise gluten free wraps for my brother in law.
Ezekiel (our guide) and Jamoo(the tracker) did a fantastic job. They are so amazingly knowledgeable, and very willing to tell us as much as we were interested in hearing. They didn't seem to mind being pelted with questions about animals, their lives and how Botswana works.
I can also understand why Kwando have the guides eating meals with the guests, as it gave us a chance to build up a relationship and time to ask even more questions. My only problem about that is that it seems the guides don't have much time "off"." See all these reviews: 6n in Botswana; 5n in South Africa; 1n in Zambia
"Trip of a lifetime"
Superb guides-Justice and Savarra- nothing was too much trouble, enormous effort went into ensuring we saw a large variety of wildlife, friendly and so proffesional." See all these reviews: 5n in Botswana
"Different to Sandibe but just as special"
Kwara camp was slightly more basic although offering the same sort of facilities The welcome was just as warming and nothing seemed too much trouble. Everything seems to run like clockwork from the getting up at the start of the day to the time out in the bush/delta to the meals. Although whatever you suggested to the staff/guides was carried out with the minimum of fuss. We found that the combination of bush and delta gave Kwara the edge over Sandibe."

"Great safari on truck, boat, mekoro"
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
