Travellers' Choice
Half way between the two major gems of Southern Africa: the Okavango Delta and the Victoria Falls, nestled on the banks of the Kwando River (Eastern Caprivi), Camp Kwando invites you to come and explore the hidden treasures of an untamed land. Capture the spirit of the African bush while sipping sundowners from the beautiful overhead deck and enjoy the thrill of fishing and the hauntingly beautiful call of the African fish eagle. Activities include game drives, boat cruise and fishing tours, discovery of the local culture. Laze by the pool is also a must!

I can’t describe how much we loved our stay at Camp Kwando. From arrival we felt that our bush holiday was under way. We did the birding cruise and the owner himself took the time to share his knowledge of the area. We had a 7 and 6 year old with us and they loved every minute of the lodge and the staff were fantastic. The added bonus was the monkeys around so there was always action. The rooms are individually decorated with a. Real eye for detail all around you. Anke and her team in the kitchen outdid themselves every day with the meals being way above standard compared to other lodges in the area. The Mudumu National Park in the Camp Kwando game drive vehicle was a treat and well worth it. Michiel thank you for all the spoils and I can see your staff still has the appetite to ensure guests are happy. We will be back I’m sure of it.

The warm welcome and friendliness of the camp management is outstanding. The reception, restaurant area is a lovely place te relax and we enjoyed the boat trip. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated, but needs a bit more maintenance. Overall, we had a very nice and enjoyable stay.

Very friendly people, campsite nice and big, but the facilities needs serious work, ablution and water disposal are a problem, drains blocked, some lights not working, support infrastructure in toilets needs replacement - in general, the place need a maintenance hand on it!

We had a very good stay at this lodge. The treehouse is spacious. We had one with view on the river. Bar/lounge and restaurant are also located at the riverside where we watched Buffalo and Hippo's grazing at the other side. Food in the restaurant is good. Boattrip and gamedrive through Mudumu NP were great. Staff very friendly. So we can recommend this place.

The deck area was really beautiful and cool in the very hot weather. The breakfast the next morning was delicious and the table setting was next to the deck railing close to the water. The little Bloubal monkeys was a treat and the sound of the fish eagle far away was amazing. The trees with the names on was lovely to see and the quavadilla growing so big with the camelthorn trees just a wow..... The room was lovely and the shower amazing. The let downs: No Fridges in the tents Shade on the deck of the chalets is inadequate, the sun is straight in your face when coming out of the tent. You cant park your vehicle at your chalets, make sure you bring only one bag. No Fishing We stayed only one night.

A team very ☺️ and friendly. Private toilets and shower with hot water morning and evening. Good localisation for à selfdrive in Bwabwata NP. Our campsite was large and isolated. Near Kongola if you need something.

The dinner was fantastic. The parking was a bit far from my room. I missed having a kettle in my room and the restaurant was a bit too far to walk for each coffee. A little cute antelope was walking around the swimming pool. Interesting decorations were made with the towels and plants. Overall I enjoyed my stay and recommend the lodge.

What a great small camp near a lovely little game park, firstly the game park. We self drove easily through it in a few hours and saw some wildlife including the hippo pool. We came across the Namibian police guarding a recently deceased elephant on the track and they were so friendly and chatty. Now the camp, the tents are beautifully set up with large netted king size beds with cute large bathrooms. They have cleared the reeds in front of the tents to give a view onto the small river which makes for an excellent spot to enjoy a g&t or early morning coffee. The star of the camp is the German (forgive me if you’re not actually German!) lady who oversees it all but especially the kitchen. You will get the best meal in Africa here for a tiny amount of money. Seriously the food is like you’re in a European restaurant in a city not in the middle of nowhere! The pumpkin papaya soup was velvety and delicious served with “the best bread in Africa” all baked in house obviously. For main there was a kudu roulade with the most amazing citrus scented jus and vegetables. Then a creamy light chocolate mousse with candied walnuts and a shortbread crumb. I mean really how did they do this?!? Breakfast was just as good and set us up for the long day ahead. Our daughter was too cosy in bed so didn’t come for breakfast and they let us make her a sandwich and fruit to eat in the car. Please stay here if you’re coming through the area and make sure to book dinner!!
