A scheduled flight by light aircraft wings you from Kwara to Kwando Lagoon, a teeming wildlife preserve situated in the northern section of the enormous 573,000-acre Kwando concession. The Kwando concession offers exclusive access to one of the most remote and unexplored wildlife strongholds left in Botswana, including 50 miles of river frontage. It incorporates the Linyanti wetlands, huge tracts of mopane forest, and vast open plains.
Here, in classic big-game country, herds of buffalo and elephant attain legendary proportions rivaled only by large prides of lions. During migration season, great herds of zebra and wildebeest are shadowed by their predators. Almost immediately on your arrival, enthralling big-game sightings begin—with once-in-a-lifetime animal encounters and rare opportunities for close-up photography. Beyond the big game, African wild-dog viewing here is considered the best in Africa.
Activities focus on open-vehicle game drives day and night, and boat cruises on the river that are ideal for birding. Walks are offered at the guide’s discretion, depending upon proximity of elephant.
