With so much water around, Kwetsani is built on stilts high up in the trees, giving it a wonderfully airy and idyllic feeling. It is an exceedingly beautiful camp and has been recently renovated to a very high specification. There are only five tents which adds to the secluded exclusivity. Each is beautifully appointed and includes everything you would expect, including indoor and outdoor showers. The main areas are equally attractive and the main lounge and dining areas are complemented by a fire pit, boma and plunge pool which is welcome in the summer months.
Being situated in a wetter area, the activities here tend to focus on the classic Okavango Delta water-based safari. Most exploration is done by boat or makoro and the species to be seen are those which are better adapted to this wet environment. Imagine herds of red lechwe galloping through the shallows, rafts of hippo eyeing you suspiciously as you drift by and the odd elephant crossing between the islands. Even the lions here seem to be semi-aquatic and have developed special techniques for hunting in shallow water! The camp also has access to a larger tract of dry land, known as Hunda Island, which is well known for its leopard viewing and this adds an extra dimension to the game drives. Walking safaris, night drives and fishing in season are also possible because of the location within a private concession.
The style of safari here tends to lend itself to a slower pace and a more laid-back atmosphere. We love to include Kwetsani for a couple of nights at the beginning or end of a safari to either get into the swing of things or wind down at the end.
