Little Kwara Camp is situated in a tree’d island on the edge of the permanent waters of the Okavango Delta. The private Kwando concession shares a common boundary with Moremi Game Reserve.
Little Kwara Camp is the sister camp to the main Kwara Camp but is set up and managed completely seperately.
The five luxury tents are spacious, and are elevated into the tree canopy on wooden decks each with their own private veranda. Each tent has it’s own en suite facilities comprising bathroom with bath and an inside/outside shower.
The main area of the camp is a thatched lodge with a comfortable lounge and bar area. This area is slightly raised which sets up a very pleasant view across the shallow lagoon whilst you relax with a drink or reading one of the natural history books in the small library.
Adjacent to the lounge is a large dining hall which is open-sided and also has views over the lagoon. Resident hippos serenade the camp year round from the water on the floodplain in front of the camp.
There is a plunge pool set on the edge of the main lodge on a pleasant decked area, and you can relax on sun-loungers here. Between the lodge and the lagoon is the camp fire area which is lit in the early mornings and evenings. This is a great place to have your early morning cup of tea or coffee, sundowner drinks or nightcap.
Little Kwara Camp offers all the following activities - mekoro trips year round, double deck boat cruise, island walks as well as game drives both off road and at night. Fishing is also offered on request, using normal reel and rod fishing - flying fishing enthusiasts need to bring their own equipment.
The ability to operate off road and at night is critical in order to see the up to 30% of interesting mammal species that are mainly active at night. These include leopard, lion, wild dog, hyena and smaller predators. The presence of permanent water at Little Kwara ensures excellent year-round game viewing. The permanent water also ensures that mekoro trips (dugout canoes) can take place in shallow water throughout the year.
Our most recent visit to Little Kwara Camp was in May 2009 when staying nearby at Kwara Camp. The location of the camp overlooking the lagoon is excellent and the rooms are spacious and luxurious. Talking to some of the other guests the feedback on the guiding was very good.
