Hippo, Sitatunga antelope and Crocodile reside
in the deeper permanent lily~filled lagoons of
the area. Lion, Leopard, Wild Dog, Cheetah, Tsessebe
and Lechwe are among the major game attractions
at Kwetsani. Nocturnal animals such as Porcupine,
Aardwolf, Serval, Genet and Bushbaby can be observed
on the night drives (water levels permitting).
The island is heavily wooded with palm, mangosteen
and fig trees. The water levels around the island
change each year, depending on the magnitude of
the annual floods from central Africa. The water
levels at Kwetsani are at their highest from April
or May to September each year.
Kwetsani Camp is a small, intimate, ten~bedded
luxury camp and is raised on wooden decks above
the lush ground vegetation. The five spacious
and lavish "tree~house" chalets are
built under thatched roofs and have canvas and
pole walls. En suite facilities under thatch include
a shower, flush toilet and basin, with an additional
outdoor shower. The rooms have an open, airy feel
about them, with a superb view of the surrounding
plains. The dining room, lounge and pub area is
situated under cool thatch.
Kwetsani offers superb land and water activities
~ with much of the focus depending on the water
levels from the region's annual flood. In addition
to stalking game by mokoro, you will also be able
to enjoy exploring palm~fringed islands on foot.
Day game drives are a highlight, enabling guests
to experience varied and diverse game viewing.
Guests have excellent chances of spotting predators
during the day as well as on night drives.
