Wilderness Kwetsani

Wilderness Kwetsani overlooks an open floodplain on the private Jao Concession in the north-western Okavango Delta area.

Wilderness Kwetsani is an intimate and luxurious camp built into the palms and fig trees of an island in the beautiful Jao Concession. The camp is built entirely on raised platforms and walkways, giving it a ‘tree-house’ feel, and overlooks a huge open flood plain. The landscape is open and really stunning, especially when the flood waters are in. To the rear of the island is a permanent channel and a 15 minute boat ride gets you to Hunda Island where game drives often take place if it is too wet to drive from Kwetsani. The camp offers a very seasonal experience – when water levels are high, the wetland experience is magical but game viewing is more limited, and when water levels are low the wetland experience is more limited but game viewing is excellent. Regardless of when you visit, Kwetsani offers a very exclusive, tranquil stay in the heart of the Okavango Delta wilderness.


The camp caters for just 10 guests in five luxuriously appointed tented suites, each built onto wooden decking and raised above the ground vegetation to offer the appearance of treehouse style accommodation…
