Okavango Delta

Kwetsani Camp


On land and water

Kwetsani, one of the most remote camps in the Okavango, is situated on an elongated island covered with palm, mangosteen and fig trees in the centre of the Jao Concession.

Five canvas, wood and glass ‘tree-house’ chalets, each with en-suite bathroom and outdoor shower, are elevated to take in the view the surrounding floodplains.

At the centre of the camp, a raised dining room, lounge, bar and plunge pool all offer sweeping vistas where plains game can be spotted. Thanks to its location, Kwetsani is a great spot for a exploring the Delta both on land and on the water.

    Mokoro and boat trips

    There is no better way of viewing the Delta and its wildlife than from the water by traditional mokoro dugout canoe or boat, often revealing the smaller critters of the Okavango Delta and fascinating waterbirds of the region.

    Night drives

    Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during normal daytime drives. Porcupine, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and lesser bushbaby are just some of these.


This camp is powered by a hybrid system, combining a diesel-powered generator that charges a bank of batteries, which in turn supplies the camp with electricity through an inverter. Thanks to this system, the generator only needs to operate for eight hours a day as opposed to 24 hours. Waste water is treated in an Above Ground Sewage Plant, ensuring that the water is clean before being allowed to enter the natural environment. In order to reduce use of bottled water, reverse osmosis filtration is done on site to provide guests with high-quality drinking water. Like all Wilderness camps, this camp is managed and monitored against very strict in-house environmental standards, so only approved eco-friendly detergents and chemicals are used.
