Refurbished in September 2019, Kwara sits on the beautiful lagoon of the original site, and is a larger and more luxurious camp than its predecessor.
Each of the 9 canvas tents tent has a spacious deck overlooking the lagoon, an ensuite bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers and bath – all of which have views out to the floodplains. There is a ceiling fan in the room and mosquito nets around the beds.
The main area of the camp, sits in the centre of the camp, has a dining area, lounge and curio shop. Kwara also has 2 small pool areas at each end of the camp providing guests with more private lounge areas. Each poolside has a small bar and pool loungers for guests to enjoy the afternoon siesta period.
All activities will be accompanied by a guide and tracker. However unlike other Kwando Safaris camps, all 9-seater vehicles take a maximum of 4 guests. We operate game drives (off-road and at night), walking safaris, mokoros, boat cruises, and seasonal fishing. The site is 15 minutes from the Kwara airstrip.
