Wilderness Kwetsani Botswana Camp Aerial View



An Okavango Oasis

Unearth all the Okavango has to offer on an authentic adventure at this intimate safari camp.


Wilderness Kwetsani

Discover the Delta by land and water.


With direct access to the Delta’s waters and the open floodplains, Wilderness Kwetsani promises adventure and discovery. Explore the wetlands by boat or traditional mokoro. Here hippos and crocs dwell, and red lechwe and rare sitatunga leap across the channels. Keep a keen eye out for plains game such as giraffes, wildebeest, zebras and impalas, plus, of course, their predators.

On a palm-fringed island in the stunning Jao Reserve, Kwetsani invites you in with five distinctively designed treehouse suites, tucked into the mangosteen and fig trees. Beautifully crafted in canvas, wood, and glass, each safari suite provides an elegant home away from home, with an exquisitely furnished bedroom and lounge.
