Location:

Kwetsani Island is a large elongated island surrounded by enormous open plains. It is located in a private reserve west of Mombo and the Moremi Game Reserve. The island is heavily wooded with palm, Mangosteen and Fig Trees.

The camp rests on stilts beneath the shady canopy, overlooking the flood plains. The water levels around the island change each year, depending on the magnitude of the annual floods from central Africa.

Guests have excellent chances of spotting predators during the day as well as on night drives.

Accommodation:

This eight-bedded luxury tented camp is raised on wooden decks above the leafy ground vegetation. The four spacious "tree-house" chalets are built under a "palm-frond thatch" roof.

En-suite facilities include a shower, flush toilet and basin, with an additional outdoor shower. The rooms have an open airy feel about them, with a superb view of the surrounding plains.

The dining room, lounge and pub area is situated under cool thatch.

Game Viewing / Activities:

Kwetsani offers excellent land and water activities dependent on annual flood levels. There are two platform hides in the concession. Guests can view wildlife by mokoro, explore palm-fringed islands on foot, or experience outstanding game drives by day or night. Lion, leopard, wild dog, cheetah, tsessebe and red lechwe are among the major game attractions at Kwetsani, while hippo, sitatunga antelope and crocodile reside in the deeper permanent lily-filled lagoons of the area. Nocturnal animals such as porcupine, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and lesser bushbaby can be observed on the night drives (water levels permitting).

The wildlife at Kwetsani depends largely on the water levels in the area. In the permanent waters, Sitatunga can be tracked silently by mokoro. From October to March the waters subside and enormous open plains are the highlight. This is where the game viewing is the best. Lion, Cheetah and Leopard are plentiful, while Tsessebe, Red Lechwe, Zebra and Wildebeest dot the flood plains. During the winter months, the water levels at Kwetsani rise and the savannah areas become covered with water.
