Kwando Concession

There are two fully-inclusive, upmarket lodges run by Kwando safaris in this concession. Lagoon Camp is located near the Kwando River and Lebala Camp is near the Linyanti marshes. Emphasis is on quality service and superb guiding. Activities include game drives, night drives, walking and boat safaris. There are plenty of animals around, especially in the Dry season. Four of the Big Five are present (rhino is absent). The Kwando River and the Linyanti marshes attract big herds of animals in the Dry season, from June to December. Elephant, buffalo, zebra and wildebeest are prolific. There is a good variety of other herbivores including impala, red lechwe, giraffe, kudu and tsessebe. Lion, leopard and spotted hyena are common, but cheetah is rarely seen. Wild dogs are sometimes tracked down as well. This big private reserve hosts a variety of habitats. Lagoon Camp is near the Kwando River with its riverine forest. Ebony and marula trees are just some of the impressive species dominating the scenery. Further south, Lebala camp is located near the Linyanti marshes where the scenery is dominated by vast plains, borassus palms, tree islands and patches of wooded savannah.
