Little Kwara Camp
Little Kwara Camp: Our View
We rate Little Kwara Camp as one of the best all round camps in Botswana, offering fantastic value for money compared to other Okavango Delta camps. For guests who want to experience the superb game viewing that the Kwara concession is famous for, but feel that Kwara Camp will be too simple for them, then Little Kwara Camp is the perfect upgrade option.
The rooms at Little Kwara Camp are spacious and very smart indeed. And with only five tented rooms it is very intimate. Although it is located not far from Kwara Camp, it operates as its own completely separate camp.
The game viewing experience in the Kwara Concession in the Okavango Delta is exceptional. The huge size of the Kwara concession allows for plenty of variety on game drives and the diversity of animals found here is impressive. Lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, buffalo and African Wild Dogs are all frequently seen here as well elephants and other plains game. And like all the other Kwando camps in Botswana, the quality of the guiding here is excellent.
The camp can also normally offer water activities like the mokoro and boat safaris all year round which means that guests can get an all round Okavango Delta experience in one camp. For guests who only have time for one camp in the Okavango Delta, Little Kwara Camp it is an ideal option.
The combination of high quality accommodation, fantastic game viewing and guiding, a wide range of activities and prices which are reasonable compared to other Okavango Delta camps makes Little Kwara Camp deservedly popular. We recommend booking the camp as far in advance as possible as it is often fully booked!Little Kwara Camp : Quick Facts

Little Kwara Camp : The Details
The 5 tented rooms at Little Kwara Camp are very spacious and attractively finished with dark wood floors and furniture. The bathrooms are also very large and have both an outdoor shower and a clawfoot bath tub. All the rooms at the camp are on raised wooden decks and are located on the edge of the forest with lovely views overlooking the seasonal floodplains of the Okavango Delta. The rooms at Little Kwara Camp are well spaced apart giving lots of privacy and each has its own private balcony where guests can relax and admire the view of the surrounding Okavango Delta.
The main communal area of Little Kwara Camp is connected to the rooms via a wooden walkway. There is a very comfortable lounge and dining area, a bar and a plunge pool.
The Kwara concession itself is vast and one of the biggest in the Okavango Delta. The wide range of habitats with its open grass plains, forests, floodplains and permanent waterways means that it can support an unusually diverse range of wildlife. This makes the game viewing at Little Kwara Camp rewarding all year round. Only Kwara and Little Kwara Camp have access to this concession – and with a total of only 13 rooms between them it makes the safari experience here very exclusive indeed.
The activities at Little Kwara Camp focus on the game drives. Each vehicle has a guide and a tracker and will seat no more than 6 people meaning everyone has an outside seat. They are totally open with no roof fitted, allowing for all round visibility. Being a private concession in the Okavango Delta, they can go off road on the game drives, making it possible to actively track animals of the delta and get very close to them.
In addition to the game drives at camp, mokoro, boat safaris & fishing trips (on a catch & release basis) are also offered at Little Kwara Camp, normally all year round. Occasionally though they are not possible due to water levels and fishing is never allowed in January or February. Walking safaris at Little Kwara Camp are also possible, although we do ask guests to advise us in advance if they are keen to do this, as qualified walking guides are not always available.
