The Kwara Concession
In the northern part of the Okavango, this 432,000 acres block of land borders Moremi Game Park: a huge area (bigger than Dartmoor and Exmoor combined) with ultra-light visitor numbers. It includes an unusually broad range of habitats: permanent rivers, secret islands, seasonal floodplains and open expanses of grassland lie within the boundaries, all of which ensures excellent year-round wildlife and bird populations. The flood season is early June to October.
The bedrooms are well-appointed but rustic; public areas are constructed around an open fire pit, which makes evenings cozy. This is a down-to-earth camp which suits guests who come to the Delta, first and foremost, for outstanding wildlife and a connoisseur’s safari experience.
