Stayed for two nights in the Kwando Lagoon Camp as the start of our first safari experience in Africa. It couldn't have been better just to have it here. After landed with the plane on the nearby landing strip, we were picked up by Spencer and Ike who took us to the camp where the staff greeted us with a...

Kwando Lagoon was our first Kwando camp. To put it bluntly, it blew us away. Great roomy accommodation, excellent central facilities, open bar, hot and cold running staff who would do anything to help if they could and excellent food. Patrick and Justice were our guide and tracker and worked tirelessly to ensure that we saw the maximum amount of...

We are repeat visitors to the Kwando concession, and love the pristine wilderness experience. On this trip we saw mating lions, wild dogs setting out on a hunt, a large herd of eland, and even some sable and roan antelope, as well as elephants, buffalo, giraffe etc.There had been heavy rain prior to our arrival, and the vegetation was lush...

Nice main lodge building. Staff and guides helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The camp is set in a vast area so game sightings can be a bit hit and miss but...

From the flight into the private airstrip, to the gracious welcome to the well laid out cabins and terrific food we had a wonderful time. Staff was knowledgeable, especially out guide and tracker, so we learned a great deal. It was also nice to be near the river, as one afternoon we took a boat ride and saw hippos UP...

This was our third stop after 3 nights on the Chobe on a houseboat and then 4 nights at Little Kwara. The accommodation at Lagoon was a little nicer than Little Kwara, very spacious and comfortable and the camp, being bigger had a more energetic vibe. Views over the river from your deck were spectacular. Food was typical Kwando fare-...

We stayed here for 3 nights as the first of two safaris in Botswana in Jan 2017. The camp is good and our room was excellent in most respects - lots of space - more than we expected. Comfortable and big bed and bath and inside and outside showers. No power points which for those who want to work on...

A fabulous lodge overlooking a spectacular stretch of river. When we arrived there was a huge herd of elephants drinking the edge.Superb hospitality. Beautiful rooms with great views.

I stayed here in November 2016. I have two issues, the food and the management. The food wasn't very good and you will be hungry at some point during your stay. Breakfast at 5:30 am, brunch at 11:30 or so, and your next meal isn't until 8 pm. That is far too long between meals. This is why I'm giving...

The location is very good. The room is clean. The staffs are friendly. If you want to see Wilddogs, this is the place to go. The ranger Patric and trucker PK who took us to game drive were great. We had a great time there. We fully recomend this lodge.
