Kwara Camp

Okavango Delta

Rating: Mid-range    

Kwara Camp overview

Kwara Camp closed in June 2018 for refurbishment and is expected to be closed for about a year. The best alternative for this camp during this time is Splash Camp, another Kwando property in the same private reserve.

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 has 8 tents accommodating 16 guests. Most of the tents are raised on teak decks with views over the surrounding plains and lagoon with resident hippos. The tents all have en-suite bathrooms with a shower and flush toilet. There is one honeymoon tent, which has a bath as opposed to a shower. Each tent has its own viewing deck. There is a swimming pool where you can cool off in the heat of the day.

Kwara Camp offers power boating, mokoro (dug out canoe) trips, walks and game drives 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.


Open: Open all year. Kwara Camp will be closed from June 2018 for about a year for refurbishment. During this time Splash Camp, another Kwando camp in the Kwara Reserve, will make a good alternative.

Location: In the heart of the Okavango Delta on permanent water adjacent to Moremi Game Reserve. 

Accommodation: 8 en-suite tents with inside/outside showers and a honeymoon tent with a bath 

Activities: All year round game drives, both day and night, the camp offers game walks and mokoro trips, as well as power boating and fishing. 

Facilities: There is a bar, lounge and dining area, a plunge pool and deck. There is also a campfire area where guests can enjoy evening drinks. 

Dining: Meals are served buffet style and a good variety is provided including fresh vegetables and fruit. Guests are seated together for all meals, but a private meal on your balcony can be arranged on request  

Children: The camp accepts children 6 years of age and over. Guest with children between 6 and 12 will have to book a private vehicle. As the camp is unfenced, children need to be supervised at all times. 

Health: This is a malarial area. 

There is no mobile reception, no direct phone or fax and no internet. Communication is maintained by radio.

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"
