Little Kwara is a more luxurious and more exclusive version of its sister camp, Kwara. There are only five tents in camp, which are each very expansive and well appointed, although they still retain a feeling of authenticity. The camp lies on the opposite side of an expansive lagoon from Kwara and is permanently shaded by massive ebony and mangosteen trees which bring welcome relief from the heat in summer. Another favourite in summer is the sparkling pool and the comfortable lounge and dining areas in which to relax. .
The food is still relatively simple but hearty and is all about good old-fashioned African home style cooking. Just what is needed after a long day on safari! However, meal times take a back seat when there are spectacular sightings taking place out in the bush. Indeed, the attitude to safari at Little 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.
We feel that Little Kwara is almost more befitting of magnificent concession such as this. If your budget will stretch this far you should definitely consider it as an option, although availability can be a challenge owing to its small size. Book early or avoid peak season. Within a longer itinerary it combines very nicely with Lagoon or Lebala in the Kwando Linyanti concession of the Linyanti region north of the Delta and with Tau Pan in the Central Kalahari or Nxai Pan in the Makgadikgadi region, for a completely contrasting experience.
