The Kwando concession is the largest in northern Botswana covering 232,000 ha of unfenced wilderness areas. There are only two camps situated within this private concession.
The concession has 50km of exclusive river frontage. The western side of this vast area consists of dense woodland but Lagoon Camps nestles in a shady area on the banks of the Kwando River, here a band of riverine forest is interspersed with wide open plains, ideal for game viewing.
Lagoon underwent a complete rebuild and was re-opened in March 2011. Each room has a deck with comfortable loungers, the sliding door leads into a sunken lounge area with a gauze window offering spectacular views over the lagoon. Go up a step to the open plan bedroom area, with a large dressing area behind. This leads to the bathroom, with double sinks, claw-foot bath, indoor shower, separate flush toilet and also and outdoor shower. The bathrooms boast the same spectacular view as the lounge/bedroom area. The tent interiors are kept pleasant throughout the summer months by a mixuture of overhanging thatch roofs, electric fans and the large gauze lined windows which allow cooling breezes through the tents.
The thatched main area of the camp is multi-level, the top area being the library which almost always has breeze sweeping through. The main area was designed to fit perfectly into the natural landscape and allow views of the river and wetlands from all areas. Just past the bar/lounge area is the plunge pool, and it’s a short meander to the deck where a comfortable swing chair awaits.
