What to do at Lagoon Camp

Lagoon Camp is attractively positioned by the Kwando River and offers many adventures for an unforgettable Botswana safari.

Experience Tranquility

Guests arrive from the airstrip through open plains into a shaded reception area and amble into the peaceful lounge, dinning and bar area, under thatch. Continue through the thatched dinning area onto the pathways leading to your personal hideaway and tent.

Your views are of expansive Africa, over the peaceful lagoon and reedbeds that lead to the Kwando-Linyanti flood plain system. This system is an intricate labyrinth of waterways, reedbeds, islands, floodplains, bush, scrub and trees. However, the river system around Lagoon camp is a maze of ox bow lakes, fossil riverbeds, reedbeds and riverine forests.

Wildlife Viewing

General game graze on the wide flood plains in spectacular scenery under the ever watchful scrutiny of predators. Lagoon offers regular and reliable sightings of Elephant, Lion, Wild dog, Leopard, Cheetah, Giraffe, Zebra, Tsessebe, Impala, Wildebeest, Buffalo and Waterbuck in stunning settings for a spectacular Botswana safari.

Sudden lines of tall lead wood trees demarcate the flood plains, many hundreds of years old. Shady grasslands give way to the striking silver cluster leaf woodlands that are tended by the Elephant, maintaining the characteristic broken gardens effect. West of the floodplains are the endless mopane woodlands that sustain the large herds in the wet season.

In the dry season Lagoon offers a mega fauna experience unmatched in Africa with sightings of numerous Elephant in a single game drive. The Lion prides regularly hunt Elephant in this remote region, a habit undocumented elsewhere in Africa. Herds of Buffalo also attract the attention of Lion and hyena and trained guides scan the horizons for the dust storms generated by thousands of buffalo hooves.


The guided night game drives on this Botswana safari, present a drama of epic proportions when the Buffalo move through the parched floodplains. Packs of Wild dogs also provide excitement for many months when they have pups, motivating them to undertake action packed hunts twice a day. Lagoon is peaceful and wonderful in summer, savage and wonderful in winter.

The purpose designed double decker barge with a jet engine is designed to navigate the shallows and ox bows of the Kwando River all year round. The strong current in the river enables you to float silently down the Kwando River and experience the peace and quiet of this remote wilderness.
