Kwetsani Camp

Location:

Kwetsani Camp is one of the most remote in the north-western Okavango Delta, Botswana.  Located in the central region of the 60,000 hectare Jao Concession, Kwetsani Camp has access to the vast open floodplains and some of the most stunning vistas of the Okavango Delta.

North of Jao Camp on the same floodplain system, located on a stretched out island heavily wooded with mangosteen, palm and fig trees and surrounded by beautiful islands surrounded by riverine forests, the camp will inspire your imagination.

The Camp:

Kwetsani Camp is an intimate, luxurious experience raised on wooden decks above the lush vegetation. The Camp contains five luxurious ‘tree-house’ chalets, each with its own en-suite bathroom and beautiful furnishings. These are of an open, airy design, made of rich thatch, strong timber, slabs of glass and luxuriant canvas.

The raised dining room, lounge and drinks area are constructed under a large, cool thatched roof and offer incredible vistas of the surrounding marshes strewn with lechwe and other plains game. Guests can also watch wildlife from a communal pool or from the comfort of their own rooms.

Activities & Wildlife:

Kwetsani Camp offers excellent land and water activities dependent on the annual flood levels of the Okavango Delta. Game drives, as well as spellbinding wildlife viewing by mokoro are on offer. There are also two platform game viewing hides in the concession, for patient guests who will often be rewarded with unique sightings. Birding, boating and adventures in the dugout “mokoro” will take guests closer to the wild, meeting the smaller wildlife inhabitants of the region.

Lion, leopard, wild dog, cheetah, tsessebe and red lechwe are among the major game attractions at Kwetsani Camp, while hippo, sitatunga antelope and crocodile reside in the deeper, permanently lily-filled lagoons of the area. Water levels allowing, nocturnal animals such as porcupine, serval, large spotted genet and many more are visible on their evening activities during night drives.
