Kwara Camp

Okavango Delta

Rating: Deluxe    

Kwara Camp overview

Kwara Camp is in Botswana's Okavango Delta on the edge of the permanent waters, bordering the Moremi Game Reserve. It is within 1,700 km2 of private unfenced wilderness, and staying here you can enjoy the experience both of game viewing on the waters of the Okavango and also on the dry savannah lands between the rivers and lagoons.

The camp underwent a complete rebuild and re-opened in August 2019.  Kwara has metamorphosed into an elegant and stylish camp offering a very comfortable stay. The essence of Kwara remains the same, a friendly welcome, local staff and a superb safari experience with expert guides and trackers. The camp has nine luxurious tents accommodating up to 18 guests. Your accommodation is spacious with a bedroom cooled by a ceiling fan and a bed fitted with a mosquito net, step down to a sunken lounge area with a plush sofa and easy chairs. The en-suite bathroom is at the other side of the bedroom with a shower, slipper bathtub and flush toilet plus an additional outdoor shower. Every tent has a private deck overlooking the floodplain. Floor to ceiling windows and sliding french doors make the most of the views, bringing the outside in.

The central area is also tented and consists of several separate areas, all open plan and linked by decking. There's an elegant dining area where delicious meals are served and a lounge where you unwind between activities, the decor is a mixture of classic safari meets Africa. Outdoors, at either end of camp there is a swimming pool with its own bar and lounge area and a deck with sun loungers. There is a gift shop where you can buy souvenirs.  

Kwara Camp offers power boating, mokoro (dug out canoe) trips, walks, game drives and fishing all year round. As Kwara is in a large private concession (as opposed to in a national park) the game drives can also operate off road and at night, which allows guests to see a greater range of wildlife. Amongst animals frequenting the reserve are hippos, crocodiles, elephants, buffalos, zebras, wild dogs, lions, leopards and cheetahs. The area is also famous for its diverse bird life.

Staying true to the wilderness Kwando camps offer a complete digital detox experience, there is no Wi-Fi and no mobile phone connectivity allowing guests to embrace the natural setting of the camp.

Mrs Rebecca Bissell

"The best camp!! Staff were wonderful here, they made you feel so welcome, our game drives were fantastic - lions, cheetah, pangolin to name a few. I loved the little touches - a bushbaby (hot water bottle) in the morning to keep you warm on the game drives and at night to keep you warm. I didn't want to leave..."

Rupert Browning
"A friendly camp, clean and well run, very friendly staff."
Allyson Burt
"A very friendly camp. The staff were great and called us to dinner with a song every evening. The game drives took full advantage of the varied terrain. Food was excellent the guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms were good. The environment beautiful with impala within feet of our tent."
Ruth Samways
"Although perhaps the oldest camp I visited I liked everything about it. Very relaxing atmosphere."
Deborah Daplyn
"Kwara was our favourite in terms of atmosphere and the people. It does need a liitle bit of tlc as far as the tents are required and sort the showers out guys, solar has to be the way to go. Otherwise food and service was perfect and boy do they do a good G & T"
