Description

It is located on an elongated island heavily wooded with palm, mangosteen and fig trees in the 60,000 hectare Eden of the Jao Concession in the north-western Okavango Delta. Kwetsani Camp is an intimate, yet luxurious, experience the rooms are raised on wooden decks above the lush vegetation.

Kwetsani Camp consists of five furnished 'tree-house' chalets, each with its own en-suite bathroom with an outdoor shower. There is a small swimming pool in the main area where guests can cool down in the middle of the day and watch game from their sun lounger.

The Camp offers excellent land and water activities dependent on the annual flood levels of the Okavango Delta. Guests can utilize the two platform hides in the concession for game viewing. Lion, leopard, wild dog, cheetah, tsessebe and red lechwe are among the major game attractions at Kwetsani Camp, while hippo, sitatunga antelope and crocodile reside in the deeper, permanently lily-filled lagoons of the area. Nocturnal animals such as porcupine, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and lesser bushbaby can be observed on the night drives (water levels permitting). Game viewing is in open 4 x 4 vehicles and night drives can be a highlight. Also mokoros are used for a quieter approach to watching the wildlife.

Accommodation

Kwetsani Camp consists of five furnished 'tree-house' chalets, each with its own en-suite bathroom. The chalets are spacious and airy. They are constructed from thatch, wood, glass and canvas so they blend nicely into the surroundings. One of the chalets is a honeymoon suite.

Childcare

There are no specific childcare facilities available at the camp, however, children over the age of 8 years are welcome to come and stay.

Facilities

The dining room, lounge and drinks area are constructed under a large, cool thatched roof and offer incredible vistas of the surrounding floodplains. There is also a swimming pool located at the camp which is often very tempting to take a dip in, in between safaris to cool down and relax.

Activities

Kwetsani Camp offers excellent land and water activities dependent on the annual flood levels of the Okavango Delta. Game drives, as well as breathtaking wildlife viewing by mokoro are on offer. More intrepid guests can also explore the many palm-fringed islands on foot (this must be requested prior to travel) or utilize the two platform hides in the concession.
