Welcome to Kwara Camp

  • Eight traditional Meru safari tents lining an expansive stretch of lagoon 
  • Pool, dining room and lounges in the main guest area 
  • All safaris accompanied by both a guide and tracker 
  • Situated on a massive private concession 440,000 acres in extent 
  • An incredible variety of activities and wildlife species to be seen

Kwara is a very well-known camp in the Okavango which has become a firm favourite of old safari hands looking for a more adventurous experience without the bells and whistles. Whilst the eight traditional Meru tents cannot be called luxurious, they are certainly very comfortable and provide everything you may need during your stay. The camp is permanently shaded by massive ebony and mangosteen trees and the tents line the edge of an expansive lagoon which echoes with the grunts of hippos early in the mornings and late in the evenings. There are a few lounge areas and a very social dining area in which to relax as well as a lovely pool in which to cool off on warm summer days. 

The food here is also a simple affair and is all about good old-fashioned African home style cooking. Meal times take a back seat when there are spectacular sightings taking place out in the bush. Indeed, the attitude to safari at Kwara is very serious and the guides will stay out as long as necessary to find that something special. It is also one of the few camps in Botswana where you will be joined on safari by a tracker as well as a guide. This dramatically improves your ability to find game in an area with few other vehicles. Day and night drives, walking safaris, boating and makoros are all possible here as well as fishing in season – a full suite of safari activities. 

Kwara is our top pick in the Delta for those who are not too concerned about the luxury of the camp but are looking for the most incredible safari experience above all else. It combines very nicely with Lagoon or Lebala camps in the Kwando Linyanti and with Tau Pan, in the Central Kalahari or Nxai Pan in the Makgadikgadi region, for a completely contrasting experience.
