"Great Safari & Wild Dog pups at Little Kwara "
The camp was lovely, plenty of sightings of elephants around the general area and directly outside our room... in keeping with the Kwando camps, it all feels very open which is great. The food was up to the usual standard and my wife (who is vegetarian) was well catered for (same applied at all camps).
Across all our camps, whilst we loved our stay it was probably not the highlight (though of course the dogs were brilliant and were something we specifically travelled for) but we put this down to Lebala which set a mid-trip standard that had little chance of being bettered..... but a great camp none the less" See all these reviews: 8n in Botswana
"Little Kwara disappointing"
After arrival at Little Kwara my wife was taken ill and had to stay in bed so unfortunately we could not go on any of the game drives so we can make no comment on the game viewing at all.
We cannot praise the staff in the lodge and in the Maun office enough as they did everything in their power to arrange transport for us back to Maun at short notice.They also met us at the airport, took us to doctors and pharmacy to collect the prescriptions and got us to a hotel.
Many thanks to Babbewe and Lessor at the lodge for there help." See all these reviews: 6n in Botswana; 3n in Zimbabwe
This camp will close on the 31st July, with the new and much more luxurious Splash Camp effectively taking its place.
"Peace in the bush"
No night drives were possible.
Our guide was disappointing who did an adequate job with little obvious enthusiasm. Our interest in birds was largely ignored. Much time was wasted tracking a lion. Even with a spotter the high grass made this an impossible task. Despite the significant animal activity not too long before daybreak in the camp we were taken to the other end of the concession to look for animals and tracks. We are not sure why.
It would be interesting to revisit this camp when the waters flood the plain and bring in more animals.
There are excellent facilities for charging camera batteries. No wi-fi.
We loved the checklist booklets." See all these reviews: 10n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia

"Fantastic tracking at Little Kwara"
We also experienced the excellent tracking skills of guide, Rogers, and tracker Mike. This was again the result of swopping vehicles and joining another group for a day, to avoid going to the air strip and interrupting our game drive." See all these reviews: 10n in Botswana
"Little Kwara review"
The Safari is the highlight here. It was just amazing experience. The food is great and the team always happy to help.
It is a good compromise to stay in the nature cos it is not a luxury lodge exactly what we were looking for.
The rooms are very quite far from each other and with great view." See all these reviews: 3n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
"Little Kwara review"
Our guide (Josiah) and tracker (KP) were both excellent. Both grew up in the Delta and shared lots of local knowledge on the animals and geography. One of the biggest highlights of Little Kwara is the ability to off-road, and Josiah was never shy about driving through thick brush to track cheetah, wild dogs, etc. Our trip was during the green season but we saw nearly all the animals I expected to see (except leopard) and had no rain at all.
Overall I'd recommend Little Kwara very highly if you're considering a trip to the Delta!" See all these reviews: 6n in Botswana
