Unforgettable riverside wilderness
Northern Botswana is one of the very best regions to see African wild dogs, and Kwando, a magnificent region of wetlands, forest and floodplains west of Chobe, is one of their key strongholds. Large herds of buffalo, giraffes, hippos, antelopes and crocodiles also abound in this large, lush and marvellously varied concession, particularly in the dry season, when the River Kwando (a continuation of the Chobe / Linyanti River) provides much-needed water.
For me, the main reason to come here is specifically to enjoy Kwando’s excellent fly-in camps, which are wild, remote and exclusive but refreshingly informal, with fantastic guided day and night game drives, river cruises and bush walks.
