Kwando Lagoon Camp
Kwando Concession – Linyanti
Kwando Lagoon Camp is perfectly situated on the banks of the crystal clear Kwando River. Nestled under a grove of Ebony and Marula trees’ that provide shade to the camp the forest is also home to a good diversity of birds and animals. It’s not unusual to see both Elephant and Hippo from the comfort of the camp.
The private Kwando Reserve has earned an excellent name for sightings of predators as well as large herds of Elephant and Buffalo. This is especially true in the winter months when herds of up to a thousand Buffalo are quite regular sightings. This vast concentration of game naturally attracts large predators such as Lion and Leopard. The Kwando Lagoon Camp pack of Wild Dogs have a den sight quite close to the camp. There is nothing more exciting than to see Wild Dog pups and witness feeding and social interactions between these fascinating creatures.
Kwando Lagoon Camp hosts 16 guests in eight spacious tents. Each tent has a private deck, living area and bathroom that all boast beautiful views over the river. The en-suite bathroom has both indoor and outdoor showers as well as a free standing bath for a well deserved soak.
The main guest areas of the camp are a bar and seating area, outdoor deck for pre-dinner drinks, dining area, curio shop and a small library. Quite close to this main area is the family tent, this has separate entrances to the twin bedroom and main bedroom with lounge area. Both rooms share an en-suite bathroom.
An afternoon river cruise is a signature event at Kwando Lagoon Camp and definitely not to be missed. Their double deck boat gives great views of the river and marshes as you drift quietly along. Sunsets are magical.
