Kwara Camp (Okavango Delta) Botswana
Kwara is located in the remote northern part of the stunning Okavango Delta within the private Kwara concession.
The camp fronts onto a huge floodplain, adjacent to the permanent water of the Delta and is backed by extensive bush.
It is a magnificent wilderness area in excess of 1,700 square kilometers, bordering the Moremi Reserve.
No trip to Botswana is complete without a visit to the Delta, the shimmering and unique watery jewel in the middle of the Kalahari desert.
Kwara encompasses a wide diversity of habitats, ranging from the clear Delta waters with reed-lined lagoons and channels, to open grasslands, mopane woodlands and palm-fringed islands.
The eight luxury safari-style tents are built on raised decks, within a grove of huge and ancient African Ebony trees.
Resident hippos will generally serenade you year round from the water on the floodplain in front of the camp.
Each tent has its own viewing deck, private en-suite facilities including hot and cold running showers, flush toilets and modern amenities.
Kwara also boasts a honeymoon suite with its own special bathroom with an antique slipper bath with the traditional ball and claw feet.
Hire a private vehicle and have the wilderness almost to your selves – enhanced by your own guide and tracker who will cater to your interests unobtrusively.
The memory will live forever!
Game Viewing / Activities:
Here our guests can enjoy a diverse wildlife experience all year-round, but the focus is definitely on the water. Whether gliding along in the special silence of a mekoro dug out canoe through crystal-clear waters or visiting the famous Godikwe lagoon, where you can stand on a boat literally eye to eye with thousands of herons, storks and other nesting birds.
Other species you can encounter through the channels and rivers are kingfishers, pygmy geese, fish eagles, jacanas, darters and if you're really fortunate, the elusive Pel's Fishing Owl. Along with the bird watching, we're able to offer fishing (both spinner and fly), walks with a guide on one of the many palm-fringed islands and also spectacular night drives on top of our morning and afternoon drives. The beauty and charm of Kwara will captivate you! The Kwara area is also home to a variety of wild animals including, lechwe, sitatunga, reedbuck, bushbuck, hippo, crocodiles, elephant, buffalo, sable, roan, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, impala and tsessebe.
