Little Kwara, Okavango Delta

This exclusive camp is located within the game rich Kwara concession, which borders the Moremi Game Reserve on the northern edge of the Okavango Delta. This is an intimate camp, accommodating no more than 10 guests, and is consistent with Kwando Safaris promise to provide intimate camps with personal service – vintage Africa.

Little Kwara offers all the activities one expects in an exclusive concession in the Okavango Delta – day and night drives, game walks, power boating, mokoro trips and fishing (spinning equipment is provided but fly fishermen need to bring their own equipment).

Nestled in Botswana’s lush Okavango Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world’s largest inland water systems, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge reopens following a ten-month closure and almost total rebuild.

The changes add innovation and originality to the Okavango experience. Fresh new tented guest accommodation, dining areas and lounges reflect the region’s natural beauty and the adventures of early explorers.

Accommodation

Little Kwara Camp consists of four spacious tents that sit on elevated wooden decks. Each tent is attractively decorated and has its own en suite bathroom that includes an indoor and outdoor shower plus a large free-standing bath. Generators provide the camp’s electricity.

Guests can also enjoy early morning trips in a mokoro – a traditional dug-out canoe punted along by a boatman using a long pole. Little Kwara Camp is surrounded by water all year round, ensuring great game viewing regardless of season, while other highlights include fishing, bird watching and nature walks accompanied by expert guides.

Activities

The daily safari routine usually involves an early morning wake up call, and a gathering around the fireside for piping hot tea and coffee, a bowl of sumptuous porridge and freshly baked muffins. As well as the clean early morning air and dazzling sun rise, an early departure greatly increases the chances of unusual sightings, as the majority of mammals are active at the beginning and end of the day when temperatures are lower.

Game Drives

Game drives are undertaken in custom designed Toyota game viewing vehicles seating no more than six guests at a time in two rows of three seats at the desert properties (Nxai and Tau Pan) and 3 rows of 3 seats in the other camps (Kwara, Little Kwara, Lebala and Lagoon). Guests are guided by a two person team of professional guide and tracker – a special feature of the Kwando Safaris wildlife experience. The two person team enables the guide to communicate points of interest and the complex interrelations that exist throughout the natural world, while the tracker ensures no sightings or tracks are missed.

Boat Safaris

The boat experience is a soothing tonic, a contrast to the vigorous efforts of searching for mammals from a vehicle or on foot. Sit back and while away the hours, stopping to gaze at a multitude of spectacular birds and bathing elephant and enjoy the vistas of the river systems. However, don’t be surprised should the peace be shattered by the snort of a territorial hippo warning the boat of his presence! Double-decker boats are used to provide a better vantage point and offer a wonderful position to enjoy the waterways and their varied inhabitants.

Walking Safaris

Walking in Africa’s wild areas is the only way to truly appreciate the natural environment. While game viewing from a vehicle allows one to see more animals as you traverse much greater distances and get much closer to animals safely, there is nothing as awe inspiring and humbling as observing wild animals on foot. Many smaller species of plants and insects, tracks and signs are all easily missed when in a vehicle. The slow pace of the walk and interpretative skills of your guide will open your eyes to a new and fascinating world.

Watching

Binoculars! Bring them! These are a vital piece of equipment, which will contribute hugely to a truly exceptional safari. You will use them more than you think whether on a walk or on a mokoro. Every person should really have their own pair, but at a minimum, have a pair between you and your travelling companion if you have one. The size that you choose depends greatly on your subject of interest. A specialist birder would likely choose a heavier 10x magnification with a wider objective, while for general wildlife viewing the smaller 8x magnification with a smaller (25mm) objective will be sufficient and mean less weight to carry around.

Little Kwara Reviews

“Little Kwara was small, intimate, l and comfortable. We saw many animals and enjoyed being able to go off road. The “tents” are very well appointed and the food was excellent. With only five tents, our time there felt very personalized and intimate. We enjoyed spending time with other guests, both on drives and at mealtimes.” – SEATTLE258

“Little Kwara provides the expected high level of luxury and customs satisfaction that we have experienced at all Kwando lodges during our time in Botswana. The staff are so solicitous and everything is done to make your time there special.” – Les C

“We had made a spontaneous arrangement and spent an amazing time in the Camp. Soft bags are preferable for the small aircrafts flying in from Maun to the private airstrip. The room (huts mounted on stilts) was beautiful prepared, with lovely small details and equipped with everything needed including moskito spray.” – nicolazitzmann
