This is one of the most beautiful camp locations as the tents are nestled under shady trees on the banks of the Kwando River, overlooking the Mudumu National Park in Namibia. This heavily forested site is home to a variety of birds and mammals, with elephant and hippo normally visible from camp in the tranquil lagoon waters.
Kwando Lagoon accommodates guests in eight traditionally styled “tents” that are raised on a wooden platform with canvas walls and thatched roofs. With insect proof doors and windows that also allow for a seamless views over the scenic surrounds, the tents are spacious with a lounge and private viewing deck that overlooks the lagoon, bedroom with en-suite bathrooms that include a bath with a view, and indoor and outdoor showers, Persian carpets and a family unit which includes an extra twin room.
Under thatch and open sided the main camp makes full use of the beautiful lagoon setting. There is a comfortable lounge, bar and dining area that spill onto the deck and swimming pool, all of which overlook the lagoon.
Large luxurious rooms with timber floors and thatched roof. Access is via a path to the rear ensuring privacy. All rooms are built on the riverbank and overlook the river.
