Lagoon Camp is at the very edge of the wild frontier. No other camp in Botswana (and perhaps Africa) is further off the beaten trail, and no other camp is able to offer a safe and immersive wildlife experience that compares to the experience at Lagoon Camp. Is it worth a visit? Take a virtual tour and make your own decision.
Located in the heart of the Kwando Concession, a private wildlife concession covering 232,000 hectares (one of the largest in Botswana), Lagoon camp sits on the banks of a channel splitting off the Kwando River. The lodge offers a charming, comfortable, and other-worldly safari experience to visitors.
Out across the Kwando River, the lodge looks into Mudumu National Park in Namibia. Its closest neighbor is Lebala Camp, a four-hour drive away, and the isolation brings regular wildlife visitors close and even into the camp, including regular visits from elephants and even lions and wild dogs.
Operated by Kwando Safaris, this is one of the very few lodges in Botswana that has trackers accompany each game vehicle. The tracker sits on the front of the vehicle, and the expert set of eyes makes it far more likely that guests get optimal sightings.
The accommodation is comfortable and elegant. Hard lead wood flooring and thatched roofs create a cool environment that is inviting. But mostly it’s the proximity to animals. Elephants and hippos mingle outside of the bedrooms all day, and it’s impossible not to be transfixed with this close connection while spending time in Lagoon Camp.
So, is it worth a visit? Simple answer is yes.
