Camps in Botswana
Kwetsani Safari Camp
Kwetsani Camp is a five roomed luxury tented safari camp located in a private reserve 25km to the west of Mombo and to the west of the Moremi Game Reserve.
The large elongated island on which Kwetsani Camp is built is heavily wooded, cool and shady with Palm, Mangosteen and Fig trees and is one of the most remote camps
in the entire Okavango Delta.
Kwetsani Camp is raised on stilts beneath a shady canopy. Five wonderful, spacious tree-house chalets are built under thatch roofs, with wood, glass and a little canvas.
All have en-suite facilities including a shower,
flush toilet, twin basins and an additional outdoor shower for those who like showering in the open air. Kwetsani camp overlooks an enormous floodplain dotted with Lechwe and Wildebeest. Guests can lie in their rooms, or in the pool, and watch the animals in front of the camp. All the Okavango's large predators are found here.
Activities include mokoroing, walking on palm-fringed islands and game drives during the day and night. Due to high flood water levels, the night drives are currently restricted to an hour's drive around the camp island.
In the height of the Okavango's annual floods, boats are used to get around the area and also to transfer to the islands where the game viewing vehicles are located.
Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Wild Dog, Buffalo and Elephant are all found in this area, as well as good concentrations of Zebra, Wildebeest, Giraffe, and all the plains game.
Access to Kwetsani Camp is only by aircraft (depending on the Okavango's flood levels, either Jao or Hunda airstrip is used for access to this camp).
50% Game Drives and 50% Water Activities (but very much dependant on flood levels).
In the summer months activities tend more towards game drives, whereas in the winter months mainly water based activities are offered.
