Amazing!

We had such a great time at Little Kwara.

The staff, guide, wildlife spotting, and the camp itself were all incredible.

I could not ask for more.

Stunning location & wildlife

This lodge is in a stunning location on a marsh, surrounded by stretches of open grassland dotted with waterholes and islands of trees. The lodge itself is lovely, with an open lounge area overlooking the marsh, big spacious rooms with huge beds, tastefully decorated in wood, each one quite private and surrounded by vegetation. But more than the amazing accommodation, I most appreciated the contact with the Batswana people running and working at the lodge.

As there are only a few rooms, there is a very exclusive feel with only a handful of guests staying there, maximising contact with the staff and guides. In the evening, eating dinner with the camp manager and guides was very interesting, giving us insights into their experiences and lives that we really valued.

The wildlife at this lodge is dense and amazing, with the guides going off road at any sign of something interesting.

Our guide Jacob very proactively searched for lions, leopards, cheetahs, giving us many exciting moments!

Excellent stay at Little Kwara

We enjoyed our stay here. The staff were attentive and helpful and made us very welcome.

Jakob, our guide, and KP, our tracker, made the game drives very interesting finding a good variety of game, including cheetah.

The river trip to the heronry made a welcome variation.

Little Kwara review

Excellent staff , game tours, and food.

This was the only place we stayed in 5 weeks which did not have mosquito nets for the bed. Instead they used mosquito coils which are stinky and probably toxic.

It was cold when we were there and the tents are not heated so we and the sheets and towels were damp or wet all of the time.

This is classified as a wet/dry camp, but they do not promote the boat outing very much.

Great Finale to our Delta Safari

Our guide (Tom) and tracker (Matt) responded well to our more general interest in natural history by providing many details about the surrounding environment. They honored our desire not to go racing off to see another pair of cats on a kill. Instead, as requested, one evening drive took us to find the elusive baobob. We were successful at finding a well-hidden, solitary giant with an interesting story to tell. But along the way we were surrounded with mixed herds of impala, kudu, eland, zebra, elephants, giraffes, wild dogs, etc. Remember to go slow and look carefully - the other land cruiser group caught only a glimpse of their target cat that same evening.

As we experienced at other Kwando facilities, Little Kwara was luxurious and comfortable with many helpful and friendly staff members. Little Kwara is more intimate due to its small size and habituated wildlife.

See comments by Ms I. from North Berwick for additional details on our shared vacation.

Little Kwara review

We saw a huge amount of wildlife from this camp. The flight in was very well done too with the pilot flying low and pointing out features and animals on the way.

Tom, our driver, and Matt, our spotter, were open to altering their normal routes to accommodate our wishes. As the lodge was not full, we were almost always on the Landcruiser on our own, so there was no reason why they could not accommodate us and they did. We had a couple of outstanding drives that included finding and photographing Alison's favourite tree (Alison is a Master gardener and occasional lecturer on trees) and seeing a huge number of animals and birds on the way. We overheard a very amusing radio exchange when the other driver asked what we were tracking and was told that we were tracking a tree!

We also had rare sightings of an elusive antelope during our river cruise spotted by Mark and Alison through there super duper bird watching binos. They were like pigs in muck when we stopped at the bird colony island on that cruise.

I particularly enjoyed my accommodation at this camp with open views and sightings of passing giraffes and baboons, and an outside shower with loads of hot water, which was very welcome after the mobile camp.

My only criticism, which i have already raised with the camp owners, is that on occasions the food was served at the wrong temperature. Hot food was not hot enough and cold food was not cold enough. Apart from detracting from the enjoyment of the food, this is also a dangerous practice which hugely increases the risk of food poisoning. As a result i did avoid certain foods during my stay.

Little Kwara review

Good game drives and very outgoing driver & spotter.

It will be undergoing a move soon - the view on the savanah will be a bit better.

excellent safari at Little Kwara

Little Kwara was overall excellent and we really enjoyed our stay there. All the staff were warm and welcoming. The guiding was excellent and we saw some great wildlife and things that we have never seen before - wild dogs hunting, hyena carrying and looking after her cub. and a spring hare. G&T's at sunset were perfect.

A little gem of a camp

Little Kwara has just 5 tents on stilts in a forest clearing and they are really well equipped.The staff and food was excellent again just like its sister camp, Lebala.

We went on the water for our first evening activity where we saw mainly birdlife and even though we are not birders this was very impressive. Do take a scarf though to wrap around your face for this activity as the midges come out on the way back on the river!

Wildlife around little Kwara was great with following wild dogs hunting on our very last game drive very exciting, thank you Wago and Mike.
