Kwetsani, one of the most remote camps in the Okavango, is situated on an elongated island covered with palm, mangosteen and fig trees.
Five beautifully furnished ‘tree-house’ chalets, each with its own en-suite bathroom and outdoor shower provide guests with open, airy accommodation of thatch, wood, glass and canvas. All are elevated and connected with wooden walkways.
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 walkway leads to a plunge pool with loungers – a perfect spot to relax at midday.
Guests can watch the animals from the comfort of the pool or the privacy of their rooms.
Kwetsani offers excellent land and water activities dependent on annual flood levels. Guests can view wildlife by mokoro or experience outstanding game drives.
During times of high water levels, Kwetsani takes boats to Hunda Island for game drives.
Open all year round
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. There are also two platform game viewing hides in the concession.
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).
The true wetland areas of the Okavango Delta are best known for their birdlife.
The largest concentrations of endangered Wattled Crane are found in this area and Slaty Egrets, Rosy-throated Longclaws and African Skimmer are some of the specials that can be seen.
Hallowed species such as Pel’s Fishing-Owl and Slaty Egret are found alongside more conspicuous and commonly seen Coppery-tailed Coucal, Pygmy Goose.
The specialised African Skimmer (from which Wilderness Safaris takes its logo) may be seen on the larger lagoons and channels.
There is a raised hide located 20 minutes from camp which can be used for sleep outs – maximum 4 people at a time.
It is equipped with a long drop loo.
