Lagoon Camp is situated in the Kwando Reserve, a huge private reserve covering 2,300km². Most of its western side is dense mopane forest but along the Kwando River is a band of lush riverine forest, interspersed with open plains. The area attracts superb big game, especially during Botswana’s dry season when elephants seem to be everywhere. It is also one of the best camps from which to see predators, especially wild dogs that den close to the camp.
Lagoon Camp accommodates up to sixteen guests in comfortably appointed twin-bedded safari style tents overlooking the lagoon. The tents have en-suite facilities, his and hers basins, flush toilet and a spacious outside shower. The camp has a plunge pool, lounge, bar, gift shop and dining room with a shady area overlooking the lagoon and is a favoured spot where elephants come to drink.
With a well-earned reputation for excellent guiding, activities focus on open vehicle game drives and boat cruises. A special feature of Lagoon Camp is the riverboat experience. The flow of the river enables the boat – a double decker – to drift along in silence, perfect for bird watching and game viewing. Game walks are on offer but are at the guides’ discretion due to the concentrations of elephant. Lagoon Camp offers off road and night game drives for sightings of the fascinating nocturnal wildlife living in the area.
Fishing is also a specialty here with the chance to catch the fighting tiger fish, bream, catfish and pike. Fishing can be done from the front of your tent at Lagoon Camp due to its situation, but please note that fishing opportunities vary throughout the year. Kwando Safaris operates a catch and release policy, but exceptions can be made if you wish to eat your fish.
