Reviews of Kwara Camp
They do not necessarily represent the views of Expert Africa.
Josiah, our guide, was especially friendly and helpful.
It would be good if the camp offered private meals in the evening. Sometimes you don't want to sit with everyone else and make forced conversation.
Great lodging and dame viewing
Accommodating were very comfortable, well arranged and staff helpful and friendly. Service and food at lodge good.
Game viewing was excellent and allowed for the most variety of wildlife on our trip.
Great game viewing
Game viewing was outstanding. Rooms are rustic but that is what we liked about the camp. Staff was just average. We felt like they didn't want to be there and no one went out of their way to be friendly. We also had other couples from both Kwara and little Kwara comment about the staff not being up to par compared to other camps. We also heard some of the workers at the camp talking about guests behind their backs. We didn't mind as much because we were there for the game experience which was fantastic. Lots of activities to choose from.Read more about the whole safari
Wonderful place, deep in the wilds
Very friendly, relaxed and comfortable place, less up-market and pretentious than some other lodges and none the worse for that.
It was great to have an elephant munching away at a tree no more than 5 meters away from us having our breakfast.
Kwara Camp = Cheetah Land
In three days at Kwara, we saw so much! 9 different Cheetahs (including 4 young cubs). Many lion. Tons of Elephants, Giraffe, Zebra, etc. It was more than we could have ever expected and made the visit unforgettable
Compared to the other camps we visited (Chitable Lediba, Lagoon, Lebala) the rooms and public areas were more basic. The shower alternated between scalding and freezing with no possibility of a pleasant equilibrium.
Guide and tracker (Josiah and Kelly) were amazing. Talented, dedicated, knowledgeable,
Camp management had its ups and downs. They wanted things done their way at their time and were not relaxed about guests doing their own thing. They were very conscientious about my gluten-free diet though and I really appreciated that.
We thoroughly enjoyed Kwara Camp.
There was not much not to like about Kwara Camp. The food was outstanding. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The guide and tracker were very professional and very competent. The tents were great. We very much enjoyed the boat ride too. My personal favorite was watching bush TV.
We have been on many safaris but none have been as long as they were at Kwara. We really enjoyed all aspects of the game drives. Especially persuing cats through the bush.
Kwara Camp review
An amazing and epic experience.
Will recommend to anyone thinking of a Safari
Kwara Camp review
Sister camp to Lagoon needs the facelift that Lagoon has had as the rooms now do not compare. But it is still an excellent camp with great game viewing , Lions Cheetahs Wild Dogs and Sable were highlights.
Robbie the guide and AT the tracker were top drawer in their tracking and enthusiasm
Kwara Camp review
Fabulous! Very basic, but such nice people. Great guide, Dix. Wonderful to meet several others. Game drives great.
Coming just from the airstrip we saw so many herds of wildlife I couldn't believe it could get better. It did!
Disappointing compared to Pom Pom
Atmosphere was spoilt by a dominant group of Germans who hogged the safari vehicles, and remained allof at meal times.
Camp management was lacking. Guides and trackers seemed to have their own fiefdom, and we were made to feel like tourists.
Expert Africa comments
Both the teams here at Expert Africa and the camp were very sorry that the behaviour of the group in camp negatively impacted on this traveller's stay. The camp's managers and guides acknowledged that they found the group particularly difficult to manage and through the constructive comments received from these travellers, they've devised a training workshop to help their team deal more effectively with this type of issue in the future.
