Little Kwara Camp

Little Kwara Camp

Little Kwara Camp is an exclusive destination located within the game rich Kwara Concession, bordering the Moremi Game Reserve on the northern edge of Botswana’s iconic Okavango Delta. The camp is situated on an island in the shade of ancient trees. Little Kwara Camp shares the 675-square-mile private Kwara reserve with its sister Kwara Camp.

Little Kwara is the smarter of the two camps and provides an intimate experience, accommodating only ten guests at a time. Its five tented chalets are large and well-designed on timber platforms, featuring with shaded verandas.

The camp’s main area is under canvas and encompasses a bar/lounge with oversized rattan chairs and comfortable sofas. A large open-sided dining area offers great views. The plunge pool beckons during the heat of the day, and the fire pit often hosts breakfast and dinner.

A light breakfast is usually served before the morning activity, while a more substantial buffet brunch awaits guests returning from the morning game drive. Enjoy afternoon tea with biscuits and other tasty dishes before the afternoon/evening activities and then an excellent dinner after dark.

Daily game drives are guided by a professional guide and a tracker. Antelope abound, along with healthy populations of zebra, wildebeest, and giraffe. Large herds of elephant and buffalo frequent the area, and wild dog are also regular visitors. Night game drives are a particular highlight, introducing guests to mammals including leopard, lion, wild dog, hyena, and smaller predators. Perhaps there is nothing as awe-inspiring, though, as observing wild animals on foot.

The wetlands and river channels lend themselves to other unique activities. Glide quietly through the water in a traditional mokoro (dug-out canoe), or cruise the river in a motorboat, observing birds, shy antelope, majestic elephant, and hippo from this unique perspective. Fishing in the nearby lagoon and along the river channels is encouraged. There are several tilapia species (including the olive bream or nembwe, red breasted tilapia, purple faced largemouth, and three spot tilapia), catfish, African pike, and the mighty tiger fish.

Birdwatching in this region has attracted visitors for years. Here are innumerable sacred ibis, yellow-billed storks, marabou storks and egrets that nest from September to December.
