Reopened 1st Sep 2019: Overlooking a secluded lagoon in the northern Okavango Delta, Kwara offers the ultimate Delta experience. Its location allows access to the permanent waterways of the Delta as well as expansive dry land areas, admired for their quality game viewing. Kwara offers, within the exclusive concession in which it is located, a wide variety of activities. In addition to game drives, both day and night, the camp offers mokoro trips, as well as fishing (spinning equipment is provided but fly fisherman need to bring their own equipment). Boat trips are on a double-decker boat that visits the Godikwe Lagoon in the waters of the Moremi Game Reserve, which is known for the abundant varieties of birdlife especially during nesting season.

We spent 3 nights at Kwara Camp on this, our first ever trip to the Delta. We were not disappointed! Charles, Carter, Justice and the team were outstandiing. The rooms were lovely and it was a treat for us to have lots of water in front of our room with hippos. The tracking was outstanding. We had the best boat trip. Thank you to everyone who looked after us - we hope to be back one day.

Our 3 night stay at Kwara camp was probably the best experience of our 12 night trip to Zambia and Botswana. The camp setting was perfect and the newly refurbished lodges were spacious and luxurious as were the communal areas. We loved the fireside breakfast area too with views to a watering hole attracting Elephants and on one occasion, Wild Dog. However what really made our stay special were the staff, particularly our brilliant guides Patrick and his partner See. They were excellent trackers and so knowledgeable on the amazing wildlife and landscape all delivered with a wonderful sense of humour and fun. We saw all the wildlife we wanted to with the exception of Honey Badgers. Well you need an excuse for a return one day. Oh yes, the boat trip was spectacular too. We highly recommend Kwara Camp. P&D

We spent 3 glorious days at Kwara camp last week. From the amazing safari vehicles, to the efficient management, to the learned and friendly guides and trackers and to the excellent food and lodging, Kwara excels in all. The newly rebuilt camp is very luxurious with clawfoot tubs and amazing beds; the delicious food is a sit down communal meal with the guides and other travellers.Drinks are always flowing and the high tea overlooking grazing animals is a delight. We particularly loved the Mokoro ride and the boat ride on the Delta. The animal viewing wasn't as easy in the green season but when we did see cheetah and wild dogs and lions, it was in this magical green sea of waving grass and baby animals everywhere: uncrowded and great value at this time of year. We want to thank our knowledgeable guide Dave and amazing tracker KB for tirelessly finding animals and birds for us hour upon hour. Having a tracker is such a luxury and being the only two people on the two last game drives was fantastic. This camp and the Delta in particular are top notch and took safari in Africa to an all new level for us. Animals all over the camp made it even more special.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

We stayed here for three nights in this newly refurbished camp in the wonderful Okavango Delta, on the last leg of our 14 night safari. The camp is beautiful, with spacious, luxurious suites & comfortable common areas. The view from the lounge over the Pan in front is incredible, with large groups of Elephant visiting regularly for a welcome mud bath. The food & beverage offering, is superior to our other four camps, with premium drinks & 5 course dinners. Tuelo was again our guide, after being with us at Tau Pan Camp. At this point, the early starts were starting to take their toll on us, but our guide was enthusiastic & we had some great sighting, especially a Wild Dog hunt and a leopard called Golden Boy. We really enjoyed our stay, the camp was beautiful, with great service from the camp staff. My only concern is that prices may rise to reflect the additions, which although welcome, are not the reason we come on safari & my price us out of a future visit. I hope not.

My wife and I traveled to Kwara between December 26 and December 30, 2019 as part of a larger trip to southern Africa. We chose the Okavango Delta for its reputation for excellent game viewing. We chose Kwara Camp on the recommendation of a friend/travel consultant who had previously been my safari guide for a competing company. We were very glad we took his advice! Route to Kwara - We flew from Johannesburg, South Africa to Maun, Botswana and then by bush plane to the Kwara "airstrip", which is a dirt strip in a grass field. The journey there was an important and joyful part of the experience for us - really setting the stage and getting us in a mindset to be far away from civilization and to really unplug and immerse ourselves in the setting. Having what seemed like a 15 year old kid pilot our small plane to a perfect landing on this dirt road in the middle of the delta was a perfect start to our safari journey. You feel how far out there you are. Facility - One factor that pushed us to Kwara was the fact that the camp had been completely overhauled over the prior year, only reopening in September 2019. The photos were beautiful and sold us on the property from a quality of the lodging standpoint. Again, we were not disappointed. The camp is beautiful and brand new. The “tents” are very large and luxury. Our tent matched exactly the new photos posted on TripAdvisor and on the Kwara website. Situated at the edge of the lagoon, we had wildlife around the tent everyday but felt very safe given the elevated platform that the tent was built on. The bathrooms were beautiful and functional – we always had hot water and the indoor and outdoor showers were excellent. Be aware – no A/C, but that is expected at a tented camp. The common areas of camp were also beautiful and we enjoyed spending time among the other guests there. Ambience was excellent, particularly at night. Staff/Service – The service at Kwara was excellent. From camp manager Florence all the way through the guides, trackers, food service and housekeeping, every single member of the team was overwhelmingly friendly and helpful. The family atmosphere amongst the staff spilled over into the guests, creating a very nice environment to get to know people from all over the world. Our guide (Patrick) and Tracker (Cee) were a perfect fit for us – friendly and outgoing, great sense of humor – they were engaging, reactive to our needs and wants and just a lot of fun to spend so much time with. We were very happy and left Kwara feeling as though we had made two great friends. Food/Beverage – Food was great, especially in light of the remote location and related limitations. There was also always a vegetarian option and usually a “safe” option for picky eaters. We had no complaints. Mealtime was a highlight for other reasons as well. We dined family style – with only 18 guests, all at one table. This is where the family atmosphere forwarded by the staff spilled over to the guest and created a real nice sense of community. We enjoyed meeting and talking with people from all over the world and engaging with the staff over dinner and wine. Game Drives/Game Viewing – Another guest used the term “an embarrassment of riches” and we could not say it better. Kwara and our guide/tracker combo of Patrick and Cee delivered on the Okavango’s reputation of plentiful game. When it came to general game like zebra, giraffe, wildebeests, warthogs, impala and other antelopes – it was simply crazy how many we saw every single day. Elephants, buffalo and hippos were also plentiful and active. We had some lively interactions with a few that added a little excitement. Of course, the success of any safari ultimately comes down to cat sightings and we had several, all of which were high quality. Our first night we spent over an hour watching a pride of 8 lions stalk a wildebeest. Day 2 saw us follow a cheetah as it hunted. Day 3 we found another cheetah and followed it as it roamed the grasslands. We also located the pack of wild dogs, though they were sleeping and not hunting. That night we had a fleeting sighting of a leopard as a hyena tried to steal its kill from the tree and our arrival sent both animals fleeing into the grasses. Day 4 was the showstopper, as we traveled to the far reaches of the concession to find 4 nearly full-grown male lions wake up from a sleep and walk to a nearby waterhole for a drink. Finally, on our last morning, we were able to witness the pack of wild dogs on the hunt. We were impossibly close the animals on all these sightings. We also did the boat ride on the river and that was really great - less game, though we saw a lot of hippos and a few crocs. But the experience of the cruise and the natural beauty of the delta was well worth it. Overall Impression – We highly recommend Kwara. I had very high expectations and Kwara met or exceeded them at every turn. For the price, I am certain you cannot do better. For any price? It’s still hard for me to imagine you doing much better.
