Kwando Kwara Lodge
Kwando Kwara Lodge 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 kilometres,
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.
The forested island on which the camp sits is typical of those encountered throughout the vast 1.6 million hectares of the Okavango Delta. At Kwara, you will discover why the Okavango is considered one of the ecological wonders of Africa and indeed the world. It is mysterious, calming, unpredictable and very wild. Kwara also boast 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. Like the other Kwando camps, Kwara offers exclusive and private traverse for all its varied 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 mokoro 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. Kwara is the nearest camp to this famous spectacle in Moremi Game Reserve.
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 Pels 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. Lion, hyena, wild dog, leopard and cheetah are abundant in this part of the Delta and regularly seen. Our highly skilled chefs prepare delicious meals, to round off a perfect day in Kwara's watery wonderland.
