The boot trip on the Kwando river beats the famous trip on the Chobe river (Kasane) easily. On our visit, there was only one boot with 6 guests and a very good guide. The river is small and with a lot of curves, with animals everywhere. We saw from very close hippos, more than 80 elephants, letchwes, crocs and many different birds. Amazing were the carmine bee eaters which have a very bright red colour in the sunset. They have nests in the riverbank. The boot has a filled cooler and I enjoyed my cold beer on this triple A rated trip.
The lodge is nice with a viewing deck and bar/diner room. The food was okay but not super.
Every room is a separate rondavel but with a lot of green bugs every where.
There is a small pool but with limited chairs. The island is very small so for us a one night stay was sufficient. The staff is very friendly.
The boot trip will make us return again.
