Experience The Remote And Wild Kwetsani Island From This Intimate Safari Camp In The Okavango
Kwetsani Camp is situated in the private Jao Concession, which is world-renowned for its fantastic wildlife and birdlife sightings, in fact, some of the best game viewing in all of Africa.
The large elongated island on which Kwetsani is built is heavily wooded, cool and shady with Palm, Mangosteen and Fig trees and is one of the most remote camps in the entire Okavango Delta.
Kwetsani Camp overlooks an enormous floodplain dotted with elephant, hippo, red lechwe, wildebeest and countless other species of plains game. All the Okavango's large predators are found here, including lions, leopards and hyenas.
With only five large and luxurious tented suites on offer, Kwetsani is a small and intimate safari camp that is all about the wilderness experience that surrounds.
Access to Kwetsani Island is only by aircraft (depending on the Okavango's flood levels, either Jao or Hunda Island airstrip is used for access to this camp).
Rooms and Suites
The tree houses at Kwetsani Camp are extremely large and spacious and perfect for a relaxing getaway.
Suites offer up king-sized beds (or twin beds should you require) with mosquito netting, a lounge area, and a writing desk, all under canvas. Outside, a private viewing deck with seating and loungers awaits with some of the best views in all of Botswana.
Each chalet in camp has en-suite facilities, including a shower, flush toilet, twin basins and an additional outdoor shower for those who like showering in the open air.

The camp is unfenced, and wildlife does and will wander through camp at any time of the day or night, keep your eyes peeled.
Activities include mokoro, walking on palm-fringed islands and game drives during the day and night. When the water levels are high, the night drives are currently restricted to an hour's drive around Kwetsani Island.
At the height of the Okavango's annual floods, boats are used to get around the area and also to transfer to the islands where the game viewing vehicles are located.
Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Wild Dog, Buffalo and Elephant are all found in this area, as well as good concentrations of Zebra, Wildebeest, Giraffe, and all the plains game.
