An island safari camp with treehouse suites in the Okavango Delta’s Jao Reserve

Discover the Okavango Delta in a unique way with a stay on an elongated island covered with ilala palm, mangosteen, and fig trees. Kwetsani is set in the visually striking Jao Reserve, where land and water game viewing is made possible through day and night game drives in the bush, and mokoro rides and boat trips exploring the untouched wetlands. Guests can look forward to spotting plenty of plains game and their lurking predators together with a variety of bird species. Return to the 100% solar-powered camp to enjoy a dip in the pool and spend an evening around the open fire under the starry night sky. The locally-grown ingredients used in traditional recipes will make that evening’s dining experience extra special.

Best time to go to Botswana

Botswana's climate ranges from arid to semi-arid and is marked by hot and rainy summers, usually between November and March. This ‘green’ season is the best time to spot migrating birds, predators, and baby animals. However, many lodges in the Okavango Delta close during these months, so do check before you book. The dry season, between April and October, is the prime time to spot animals as they frequent water sources. This is also when the Delta floods, making it a great time for water-based activities. These months are a fantastic time to visit the salt pans, which will be dry from about June to September.


Standard Twin/Double Tents

Set amongst a tree canopy, the Kwetsani Tent Suites accommodate 2 adults in elegantly furnished treehouse suites made of canvas, wood, and glass. All suites include a bedroom and lounge and offer expansive views of the beautiful floodplains.
