Kwara Camp is located within one of the largest (almost half a million acres) private concession areas in all of Botswana, and it is also one of the richest for wildlife. This region offers the perfect contrast to a well crafted Botswana safari proposal as its location allows access to the permanent waterways of the Delta as well as expansive dry land area, renowned for some of Botswana’s best game viewing.
Kwara Camp is able to offer a great diversity of activities including power boating, mokoro (dug out canoe) trips, walks and game drives. Kwara camp comprises just 8 twin-bedded rustic safari style tents accommodating a maximum of 16 guests. The tents are built on raised teak decks each with en-suite facilities. The intimate dining and lounge area is under thatch, built around a large shade tree overlooking the lagoon. Kwara has a small gift shop, lounge, dining room and small plunge pool. The camp is simple but comfortable and the setting is spectacular with wonderful sounds from hippos and birds.

Kwara Camp Reviews
S.T., traveled in November 2015
Comments: Kwara was rustic, but their current manager Jessica had everything running quite well. We were preparing to fly out when we heard the best airport gate departure announcement ever… “Cheetah on the runway!” We had to quickly grab packed cameras, jump back on vehicles and race down to see it.
L.R., traveled in September 2015
Comments: Tents are great. Kwara’s location right on the water was fantastic. We had animals like elephants, kudu, baboons, giraffe, and buffalo walking right through camp and making wonderful sounds at night. Food was excellent. Excellent tracking and guides. Especially liked the ‘pauses’ from game drives with boat trip at Kwara. Best family vacation ever. Would highly recommend it.
V.H., traveled in August 2015
Comments: Highlights were the lions and cheetahs at Kwara. We were able to observe many aspects of the lives of these beautiful animals. Master, our tracker at Kwara – not only was he very good at tracking, he was a delightful person with a sly sense of humor. I am certainly not complaining about Kwara, but its operation was not as smooth [as other camps]. A couple of things weren’t working in our tent, although they were repaired promptly when we pointed them out; we wondered if perhaps the camp was due for renovation. We really appreciated the effort to accommodate our vegetarian diet; in addition, the food was excellent. We also enjoyed eating with our guides; it was nice to converse both in and out of the field. We saw the most wildlife at Kwara. We would recommend the camp to anyone.
S.L., traveled in March 2015
Comments: This is the one camp we were in that was run exclusively by native Botswanans. That was very impressive. Loads of sightings. The boat ride on the Okavanga Delta was especially memorable.
G.G., traveled in March 2015
Comments: Completely terrific. Tom at Kwara had an encyclopedic knowledge of ALL the birds and mammals. We especially liked mixing up our days with boat rides and walking safaris. Overall experience was excellent, superlative, magnificent, glorious, spectacular, fabulous, stupendous!
N.B., traveled in January 2015
Comments: Kwara had fantastic game viewing. Kwara does not even have a fan of any kind. We thought the food was far inferior to that of the other camps we visited.
P.E., traveled in August 2014
Comments: Kwara is a different kind of camp, closer to a true bush camp and therefore a different experience. I loved that about it as well as the proximity to game right in the camp. Trip of a lifetime! Exceptional.
J.P., traveled in November 2013
Comments: The accommodations were fantastic. We enjoyed the comfort of Kwara. Guide Tom was fantastic. He was very personable, professional, and clearly educated about the wildlife and interested to share his knowledge with the guests. We absolutely loved our trip. Botswana is an amazing country and we’re very happy that we picked this country for our safari.
E.R., traveled in October 2013
Comments: On the afternoon game drive we saw wild dogs and 4 honey badgers (the new record) coming in. Kwara gets an A+ by me. Senior management was onsite to make sure a few previously reviewed issued had been settled. We had zero complaints and will return.
