Tucked away on the banks of the Kwando River, sheltered under the branches of marula and ebony, Kwando Reserve’s Lagoon Camp is riverside relaxation incarnate. Watch herds of elephant come to drink at the river’s edge, whilst pods of hippo splash in the waters.
Lagoon Camp is owned by the Kwando Safaris group, which is one of the best photography safari companies in Botswana; noted for gorgeous camps set in diverse wildlife destinations (usually private concessions), highly trained and professional guides, plus a personal touch.
The Kwando concession stretches over 232,000 hectares of wilderness, yet there are only two camps in this private reserve (the other is Lagoon Camp’s sister property, Lebala). Both camps are capped at 16 guests each, so you’ll feel like you have this corner of the wild all to yourself.
The Kwando Reserve is noted for an abundance of big game favourites, such as elephant and buffalo, as well as its resident pack of African wild dogs; one of the continent’s rarest species, with Lagoon Camp being one of the best places to see them, due to the dogs’ den close by.
Other species of note which call this area home are rare brown hyena, honey badger, serval, civet, lion (the three local prides are known as the Holy Pride, the Bonga Pride and the Marsh Pride), leopard, kudu, baboon, antelope (eland, roan and sable), zebra, giraffe, impala and wildebeest.
Don’t miss the camp’s daily afternoon river cruise, when Lagoon’s double-decker boat drifts down the Kwando, so you can wildlife-watch with a sundowner in hand. Observe critters big and small come to bathe or drink, as well as the region’s colourful and diverse birdlife.
At Lagoon Camp, you can enjoy day, night and off-road game drives, plus walking safaris with local guides and trackers. Try your hand at fishing between March and December (January and February is peak breeding season), to get a glimpse of life beneath the river’s surface.
