Kwetsani Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Kwetsani Camp is a Classic Camp

Things to do at Kwetsani Camp

Kwetsani Camp offers excellent land and water activities. In the summer, these tend more towards game drives, whereas in the winter, mainly water-based activities are offered.

Game Drives

Morning and afternoon game drives are offered in open 4x4 Land Rovers, each accommodating a maximum of seven people, allowing each guest a ‘window’ seat. In times of high water guests are transferred by boat to game drive areas.

Night Drives

Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during normal daytime drives. Porcupine, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and lesser bushbaby are just some of these.

Mokoro Excursions*

There is no better way of viewing the Delta and its wildlife than by traditional mokoro (dugout canoe), often revealing the smaller critters of the Okavango Delta and fascinating waterbirds of the region. In summer, guests are driven to the water for this activity. *This activity is water-level dependent.

Boating*

Boating is another idyllic form or water wildlife viewing often yielding fabulous sightings of hippo and crocodile and maybe even the elusive sitatunga. *This activity is water-level dependent.

Birding

The Jao Concession has outstanding birding opportunities. With water and land activities, opportunities to grow your list are excellent. Wattled cranes, slaty egrets, rosy-throated longclaws, Pel’s fishing-owls and African skimmers are some of the ‘specials,’ while more common coppery-tailed coucals and pygmy goose are also seen.
