Both have game viewing opportunities in abundance. But one offers the romanticised safari experience; the other is smaller, and even more exclusive. Which ‘sister’ will you choose?
Whether you specify Kwara safari camp, or its smaller sister Little Kwara, on the itinerary for your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Botswana, you will find yourself in an area teeming with wildlife.
Set in the remote northern region of the Okavango, Kwara overlooks a secluded lagoon that attracts a huge variety of animals and birds, whilst Little Kwara stands beside the acclaimed Moremi Game Reserve. Between them they cover habitats ranging from wetlands to dry grasslands. So expect elephants and hippos, big cats and their prey, herds of graceful grazers, as well as myriad reptiles and fascinating birds. The difficulty lies in choosing between the romance of the larger Kwara – with its honeymoon tent – or Little Kwara with fewer guests and the sensation of being even more remote.
