|No trip to Botswana is complete without a visit to the Okavango Delta, the shimmering and
unique watery jewel in the middle of the Kalahari desert. Kwara
encompasses a wide diversity of habitats, ranging from the clear Delta
waters with reed-lined lagoons and channels, to open grasslands, mopane
woodlands and palm-fringed islands.
Kwara is located in the remote northern part of the stunning Okavango
Delta within the private Kwara concession. The camp fronts onto a huge
floodplain, adjacent to the permanent water of the Delta and is backed
by extensive bush. It is a magnificent wilderness area in excess of
1,700 square kilometres, bordering the Moremi Reserve.
The Kwara area is also home to a variety of wild animals including,
lechwe, sitatunga, reedbuck, bushbuck, hippo, crocodiles, elephant,
buffalo, sable, roan, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, impala and tsessebe.
Lion, hyaena, wild dog, leopard and cheetah are abundant in this part of
the Delta and regularly seen.
The wetlands and flood plains around Lebala offer a wonderful variety of
wildlife with excellent sightings of elephant, hippo, lechwe, zebra,
giraffe, impala, wildebeest, kudu, tsessebe, roan, sable, buffalo and
the ever present predators; wild dog, lion, cheetah and hyena.
The intimate and tranquil atmosphere of Lagoon camp, some 30
kilometres away is next. Set on the banks of an oxbow of the Kwando
River, Lagoon is remote and beautiful.
To round out your Safari, you'll then fly into Livingstone in Zambia or
Victoria Falls and stay for two nights at Songwe Village in Zambia, on
the edge of the breathtaking Batoka Gorge, 400 feet above the mighty
Zambezi River. Victoria Falls is one of the natural wonders of the world.
