Kwando Concession, Botswana Plan a trip

Ready to walk on the wild side? Head to the Kwando Concession, home of one of the most diverse and magnificent wildlife populations on earth.

This part of northern Botswana, bordering Namibia, is truly remarkable. It’s vast, remote and untamed, boasting a variety of habitats and landscapes spanning an impressive 2,300 square kilometres. There are open floodplains, tree-dotted islands, lush wetlands forests and of course, the gentle curves of the Kwando river which runs through the area.

This is the perfect destination for wildlife spotting, and there’s an embarrassment of riches here. Head out on safari and you’ll see large numbers of elephant, buffalo, giraffe, blue wildebeest, impala and tsessebe. You can spend hours happily bird spotting, but watch out for those stealthy crocodiles. And of course, there’s the thrill of seeing a lion, cheetah, leopard or a pack of wild dogs out on the prowl.

And there’s even more to discover at this private wildlife concession once the sun sets. Take an exciting night drive to spot mysterious nocturnal creatures, including genets, civets, spring hares and honey badgers.

A particularly good time to visit the Kwando Concession is the dry season, when wildlife numbers swell to unbelievable numbers.

You could spend days immersing yourself in nature at the Kwando Concession, with its sparkling namesake river, wide open skies and picturesque oxbow lakes. Whether you’re an animal lover or are irresistibly drawn to the challenge of exploring a true wilderness, there are no end of unforgettable experiences to be found here.
