"Kwara Camp review"
The in-lodge staff were ok but did not compare in enthusiasm nor attitude with those at other lodges. That said, the guide was superb. He was so knowledgable and eager to share all he knew with us. He also had a great sense of humor and was fun to go exploring with. We saw great wildlife. The food was not good at all.
It was (sorry Megan) what I think of as the legacy of British colonial food, bland and uncreative." See all these reviews: 10n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
The staff are friendly and helpful and this camp offered both a guide and a tracker on the 4WD trips. This felt a bit more relaxing to me as the guide could concentrate on driving the difficult terrain.
The boat trip on the delta was wonderful, plenty of wonderful birds and views. This was our last camp and we were lucky to see a cheetah with cubs and a kill, a leopard and plenty of lion." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 7n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia; 2n in South Africa
"Wildlife paradise at Kwara"
THE experience of the whole holiday was the mokoro trip gliding silently through the narrow channels of the Okavango (hippos at a suitably discreet distance - generally!) and getting so close to birds." See all these reviews: 6n in Botswana; 4n in Namibia; 2n in Zimbabwe
"Beautiful memories of landscape around Kwara"
Food was less varied then the other Kwando camps we visited during our trip (Lagoon and Lebala) and there always seemed to be something missing (e.g. no eggs at breakfast; no fresh fruit for lunch, no milk to put in the tea...). Staff was not unfriendly, but didn't seem very interested in their visitors. During dinner, guides mainly kept to themselves and talked in Setswana to each other. Overall, the general atmosphere in this camp was not as warm and welcoming as we have experienced in the other camps we visited.
That being said, we did have a memorable stay as, again, the landscape around Kwara is among the most beautiful we saw during our trip, and we wouldn't have wanted to miss that. And to top it off: we had stunning sightings of lions and cheetah at this camp ! Reason why our overall appreciation of the camp was "good" instead of "average"."

"Great views of wildlife, especially wild dog"
We had wonderful sightings of cheetah and cubs, jackals and, best of all, a wild dog. She had become separated from her hunting partner and was plaintively calling to re-establish contact.
Our guide, Josiah, and tracker, Gomms, were friendly and knowledgeable. Gomms made an excellent gin and tonic!" See all these reviews: 15n in Botswana

Camp was nice and staff was pleasant. Our guide was amazing (George), as well as our tracker (Gomes)." See all these reviews: 6n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
"Kwara Camp review"
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." See all these reviews: 7n in Botswana; 3n in Zimbabwe
