Lagoon Camp is situated in the Kwando Reserve, a huge private reserve covering 2,300 square kilometres. 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.
Lagoon Camp has eight tents, one of which is a family room, comfortably appointed twin-bedded one double safari style tents overlooking the lagoon. The tents have en-suite facilities, his and hers basins, flush toilet and a spacious inside bath tub and inside & outside showers. The camp has a plunge pool, lounge, bar, gift shop and dining room with a shady area overlooking both the lagoon and is a favoured spot where elephants come to drink and also have a raised library that overlooks the lagoon.
At Lagoon Camp the activities concentrate around 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 with the flow 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, offering guests to see the fascinating nocturnal wildlife in the area.
Fishing is also a specialty here and those who are keen will have an opportunity to catch the fighting tiger fish, bream, catfish and pike. Fishing can be done from the front of your tent at Lagoon due to its situation, but please note that fishing opportunities vary throughout the year. Kwando Safaris subscribes to the catch and release policy, but exceptions can be made if you wish to eat your fish.
