This is one of the six sister camps that come within the Kwando umbrella. Kwando is a locally-owned (Batswana) organisation that is concerned with wildlife and creating top-notch safaris. Their camps are stylish and luxurious, but remain firmly focussed on offering the best safari experience. Venture Co has been working with Kwando for many years and the feedback we receive from clients is consistently outstanding; we don’t hesitate to recommend them.
Kwando In a nutshell
Their camps cover all the best locations (Okavango Delta, adjoining concession land; the pans and the Central Kalahari.
All camps are open all year.
Max of 6 persons per vehicle.
Vehicles always have two members of staff, a driver and the tracker – each focussed on his own tasks.
Max of 8 tents (16 persons) in any one camp – small is beautiful!
Rates are fully inclusive: laundry, bar bill, snacks – fill your boots!
The Linyanti Area
Why Linyanti? Quite simply because Linyanti is Africa’s best-kept secret; an area of land immediately north of Moremi NP and the Okavango Delta; west of Chobe NP; south of the Caprivi Strip. It consists of three tracts, East Linyanti, Kwando and Selinda and if you tot-up the total number of lodge beds available in this massive area, it comes to just over 100! The chances of seeing anyone else while out and about are virtually nil. If you like your Africa pure, pristine and wild, look no further.

The large herbivores (elephant and buffalo) are a particular feature of this area; and remarkably, hunting dogs have denned here five out of the last six years! Pups are born in June.
The bedrooms are well-appointed and since the 2011 re-fit, really rather good. The public areas are equally comfortable, but it’s what happens outside that really counts and the game in this area is probably the best in Africa.
