The Kwara concessio: A green season secret

Alex The Lion


The Kwando camps are not overly luxurious and squarely target those interested in serious game viewing. Having spent hours following cheetah spoor or boating on the calm waters of the Okavango, the concession ticks all the boxes for those wanting mixed activities on their Okavango adventure.

A Green Season Adventure

The confusing element of any Okavango safari is understanding the great flood and its impact on a particular concession. During the ‘peak’ season of June through to October, the water levels are actually higher. As the live giving waters push down from Angola, some of Kwara’s most productive floodplains become inundated.

It is not until December or January that the water fully recedes and all areas become accessible. Although this is during the rainy season, when wildlife is typically more dispersed, there are areas of the Delta that enjoy their peak game viewing. Tsum Tsum, Kwara’s short grass plains, is the part of the concession that comes to life, drawing in large herds that sustain significant predator numbers. You could easily foget it is the off season.
