Kwara Camp

Kwara

As of 1 Jun 2018: Kwara camp is closed for rebuild and will reopen on 1st September 2019. Opening dates will be announced to the travel trade in due course. Please enquire about availability in Splash, also located in the Kwara Reserve, in the interim.

Overlooking a secluded lagoon in the northern Okavango Delta, Kwara offers the ultimate Delta experience. Its location allows access to the permanent waterways of the Delta as well as expansive dry land areas, admired for their quality game viewing.

Kwara offers, within the exclusive concession in which it is located, a wide variety of activities. In addition to game drives, both day and night, the camp offers mokoro trips, as well as fishing (spinning equipment is provided but fly fisherman need to bring their own equipment). Boat trips are on a double-decker boat that visits the Godikwe Lagoon in the waters of the Moremi Game Reserve, which is known for the abundant varieties of birdlife especially during nesting season.

Kwara is known for its consistent sightings of predators, including lion, cheetah, leopard and on rare occasion – white rhino! Herds of elephants also frequent the area, as well as giraffe, zebra, sitatunga, lechwe, impala and hippos.

(Please note fishing is only offered in the open season March-December).

The Camp

Kwara sits on the beautiful lagoon of the original site, and is set to be a larger and more luxurious camp than its predecessor.

The décor of Kwara pays homage to the authentic African style of Kwando Safaris, and will have 9 canvas tents. Each tent has a spacious deck overlooking the lagoon, an ensuite bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers and a gorgeous bath – all of which have views out to the floodplains. There will be a ceiling fan in the room and mosquito nets around the beds.

The main area of the camp, which will sit in the centre of the camp, will have a dining area, lounge and curio shop. Kwara will also have 2 small pool areas at each end of the camp providing guests with more private lounge areas. Each poolside will have a small bar and pool loungers for guests to enjoy the afternoon siesta period. There will be one additional pilot/guide tent of a lesser standard than the other guest tents.

Like other Kwando properties, Kwara offers a digital detox experience (no wifi, no cell phone connectivity) allowing our guests to truly enjoy and embrace the natural setting of the camp. All activities will be accompanied by a guide and tracker. We will operate game drives (off-road and at night), walking safaris, mokoros, boat cruises, and seasonal fishing. The site is still 15 minutes from the Kwara airstrip.

*The age limit for Kwara is a minimum of 18 years of age and there are no family rooms. (These are available at Splash).

*Kwara must be booked for a stay of minimum of 3 nights.
