Kwando Lagoon is perched on the banks of the wild Kwando River, overlooking the Mudumu National Park in the Namibian Caprivi Strip. The camp is nestled beneath towering ebony and marula trees and accommodates up to 16 guests in eight traditionally styled 'tents.' The heavily forested site is home to a wide variety of birds and mammals, while elephant and hippo are normally visible from the camp. The stunning views and close proximity of wildlife all contribute to the pervading sense of calm at Lagoon.
The most beautiful camp setting in Botswana – set on the banks of a perennial lagoon of the Kwando River under large shady trees – the setting makes the Lagoon experience personal and intimate – the epitome of the Kwando Safaris ethos. At Lagoon the defined river channels give way to flood plains, both permanent and seasonal and the ox bow lakes make many secret lagoons favoured by game for drinking in the dry season. Lagoon is famous for its wild dogs and excellent buffalo and lion interaction. Lagoon like Lebala – except for it markedly different vegetation, has a reputation for predator action.
The 8 luxury safari tents are furnished in Rhodesian teak, with soft cushions in earthy tones and the twin or king beds are draped with light weight linens. The reed-enclosed en suite bathrooms are rustic, with modern amenities, double vanities and wide open showers. Each tent opens out to a private viewing deck with views of the lagoon.
Freshly prepared delicious meals are served in the thatched dining room overlooking the tranquil waters of the lagoon.
Activities here include – walks (seasonal), game drives, fishing & evening boat cruises. Game viewing is enjoyed off road or even at night with expert guides and trackers in open safari vehicles. Another special feature of the camp is the afternoon river cruise. The unique double deck boat allows several guests the opportunity to drift along the river while enjoying spectacular views, mammal and bird life while sipping at your 'sundowner' of choice. For those guests who enjoy fishing, there is ample room to throw a line in the water while the boat meanders along.
