      Kwando Lagoon

      A Prime Overlook for the Kwando River

      Lagoon is perched on the banks of the wild Kwando River, overlooking the Mudumu National Park in the Namibian Caprivi Strip. The camp is nestled beneath towering ebony and marula trees and accommodates up to 18 guests in spacious, elegantly furnished thatched rooms, one of which is a family unit. The heavily forested site is home to a wide variety of birds and mammals, while elephants and hippos are normally visible from the camp. The stunning views and close proximity of wildlife all contribute to the pervading sense of calm at Lagoon. Seasonally large herds of elephants drink at the river bank near the camp in full view of the main deck, while playful spotted-necked otters are commonly seen performing in the water. Lagoon has a well-earned reputation for big game and large herds of elephants and buffalo, especially in the winter months, when herds of up to a thousand are not uncommon. This vast concentration of game attracts the attention of large predators. The Lagoon wild dog pack regularly den close to the camp and the excellent viewing opportunities have led to Lagoon's reputation as the place to see wild dog in Botswana. Another special feature of the camp is the afternoon river cruise. The unique double-deck boat allows several guests the opportunity to drift along the river while enjoying spectacular views, mammal and bird life while sipping at your 'sundowner' of choice. For those guests who enjoy fishing, there is ample room to throw a line in the water while the boat meanders along. The daily safari routine usually involves an early morning wake up call, and a gathering around the fireside for piping hot tea and coffee, a bowl of sumptuous porridge and freshly baked muffins. As well as offering fresh, early-morning air and a dazzling sunrise, an early departure greatly increases the chances of unusual sightings, as the majority of mammals are active at the beginning and end of the day when temperatures are lower. Game drives are undertaken in Toyota Landcruisers each with 3 rows of 3 seats but a maximum of 6 guests per vehicle. The use of only two rows ensures that guests are never so far from the front of the vehicle that they are unable to hear the guide or tracker's interpretation, even while driving. Guests are guided by a two-person team of a professional guide and a tracker - a special feature of the Kwando Safaris wildlife experience. This team enables the guide to communicate points of interest and the complex interrelations that exist throughout the natural world, while the tracker ensures no sightings or tracks are missed. The evening/night drives are a Kwando Safaris specialty. The drive starts in the late afternoon as the sun’s rays are dipping to the west and the day’s heat is declining. After a leisurely pause for the traditional sundowner, the African day is transformed into a soft colorful evening canvas and the night drive begins. The mystery unfolds as the creatures of the night, especially the predators, are revealed by spotlight, often unexpectedly.
