Kwetsani Camp, one of the most remote camps in the Okavango, is situated on an elongated island covered with palm, mangosteen and fig trees. Depending on the water levels, Kwetsani offers excellent land and water activities, viewing wildlife by mekoro or on game drives. During times of high water, Kwetsani boats to Hunda Island for game drives, complete with a picnic for a full-day excursion.
Five luxurious “treehouse” tents are elevated so as to take in the view. The main area includes a dining room and lounge area situated under a cool thatched roof and leads onto an expansive wooden deck that looks out over an enormous floodplain often dotted with plains game. A plunge pool is a perfect spot to relax or watch the animals below.
Kwetsani Camp is raised on stilts beneath a shady canopy. Five wonderful, spacious tree-house, canvas, chalets are built under thatch roofs, with wood, glass and a little canvas. All have en-suite facilities including a shower, flush toilet, twin basins and an additional outdoor shower for those who like showering in the open air. The camp overlooks an enormous floodplain dotted with Lechwe and Wildebeest. Guests can lie in their rooms, or in the pool, and watch the animals in front of the camp. All the Okavango's large predators are found here.
Activities include mokoro trails, walking on palm-fringed islands and game drives during the day and night. Due to high flood water levels, the night drives are currently restricted to an hour's drive around the camp island. At the height of Okavango's annual floods, boats are used to get around the area and also to transfer to the islands where the game viewing vehicles are located. Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Wild Dog, Buffalo and Elephant are all found in this area, as well as good concentrations of Zebra, Wildebeest, Giraffe, and all the plains game.
Access into this area is only by aircraft (depending on the Okavango's flood levels, either Jao or Hunda airstrip is used for access to this camp).
Kwetsani is dedicated to community upliftment and assists the Jao village community with various contributions, including food, clothing and support of the elderly.
Moremi Game Reserve is in northern Botswana, in the Okavango Delta, which becomes a lush animal habitat during seasonal floods. Dugout canoes are used to navigate past birdlife, hippos and crocodiles on waterways like the Xakanaxa Lagoon. On land, wildlife includes lions, leopards and rhinos. Safari camps are common, with several dotted around large Chief's Island and the forested Mopane Tongue Peninsula.
