Lagoon Camp is a tented lodge overlooking a lagoon close to the Kwando River in the remote Kwando Concession of the Greater Linyanti region

Lagoon Camp has for many years been recognised as one of the best camps in Africa to see wild dogs. A successful pack of dogs have chosen to den in the wilderness area close to camp for many of the last 10 years and the chances of seeing dogs are always pretty good. Recently the dogs have denned away from the property so it is only in June each year that the camp really knows how good the wild dog viewing is likely to be for the rest of that season! However, the Kwando Concession offers much more with excellent general game viewing.

The ethos of the camp is for their guests to see as much wildlife as possible during their stay, though this can mean that game drives are sometimes quite adventurous with lots of off road driving! Hospitality at Lagoon Camp is friendly and food is fine, but you are not choosing it for its sophisticated hospitality, personal hosting or slick service. You should choose Lagoon Camp because your priority is seeing big game, possibly with a particular interest in wild dogs, in an exclusive wilderness environment, hosted by proactive guides.
