Little Kwara closes in July 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 reserve.
Little Kwara Camp is situated on an island on the edge of the permanent waters of the world renowned Okavango Delta. The concession shares a common boundary with Moremi Game Reserve and there is abundant wildlife to be seen here.
There are just 5 tents set amongst the trees, making this a peaceful and intimate camp. The tents are spacious, and are elevated into the tree canopy on wooden decks each with its own private veranda. Each tent has its own en-suite facilities comprising bathroom with bath and an inside/outside shower. This is an ideal camp for exclusive use by small groups and families. There is a swimming pool where guests can relax and cool off.
Activities available here include mokoro trips year round, double deck boat cruises, island walks as well and game drives both off road and at night. Fishing is also offered on request, using normal reel and rod fishing. Fly fishing enthusiasts need to bring their own equipment. The spectacular scenery with scattered herds of plains game and the ever- attendant predators helps to enhance your safari. Due to the labyrinth of waterways, islands, seasonal flood plains and bush, Little Kwara is always interesting and varied.

A varied safari taking in prime game locations and staying in top-of-the-range accommodation
Amazing accommodation & guiding, coupled with the chance of some of the best wild dog sightings in the world. It's too good to resist.
"A lovely small camp with a really nice feel. Our guide (Tom) was incredible and with the help of the spotter, Mike, gave us wonderful experiences with animals and birds that included cheetah and leopard. We also loved the boat ride."
