The private Kwara Concession is one of the largest in Botswana at around 440,000 acres. This massive area is shared by only two camps and a maximum 26 guests. Safari really doesn’t get much more exclusive than this. It is accessed almost exclusively by light aircraft but can also be reached by boat from the Mopane Tongue area during the flood. Situated in the productive northern Okavango Delta, it shares a 20 mile boundary with the world famous Moremi Game Reserve. There is therefore a tremendous benefit from the movement of wildlife onto the private concession but none of the restrictions associated with the national park.
There are ample deep water channels, permanent swamps, lagoons and floodplains in the south which support good numbers of hippo, crocodile, red lechwe and a huge diversity of waterbirds. The expanses of dry land further north mean that great predator sightings are commonplace and Kwara is particularly well known for reasonably regular sightings of African Wild Dog. These are complemented by a multitude of herbivores and often large numbers of Elephants, Buffalo and Zebra. Giraffe, Wildebeest, Tsessebe and Kudu are other commonly seen species. The Kwara concession does have have incredible sightings of the big predators, especially Lion and leopard.
This diverse range of habitats allows for the ideal mix of wet and dry activities. The dry activities will allow you to cover more ground in your search for big game whilst the wet activities will allow you to experience the beauty of the classic Okavango habitats. Day and night drives, walking safaris, boating safaris and makoros are all possible here as well as fishing in season.
Because it is a private concession off-road driving is also permitted in search of special sightings. Unusually for the Delta, the game viewing is actually very consistent and reliable throughout the year. Speaking purely in terms of an authentic safari experience, this is our top pick in the Delta.Enquire Now
