No of Nights: 3

No of rooms: 1

Lagoon is perched on the banks of the wild Kwando River, overlooking the Mudumu National Park in the Namibian Caprivi Strip. The camp is nestled beneath towering ebony and morula trees and accommodates up to 16 guests in eight traditionally styled ‘tents.’ The heavily forested site is home to a wide variety of birds and mammals, while elephant and hippo are normally visible from the camp. The stunning views and close proximity of wildlife all contribute to the permeating sense of calm at Lagoon.

Seasonally large herds of elephant drink at the river bank near to the camp in full view of the main deck, while playful spotted – necked otters are commonly seen performing in the water.

Lagoon has a well-earned standing for big game and large herds of elephant and buffalo, especially in the winter months (May – July), when herds of up to a thousand are not uncommon. This vast concentration of game attracts the attention of large predators. The Lagoon wild dog pack regularly inhabit the den close to the camp and the excellent viewing opportunities have led to Lagoon’s reputation as the place to see wild dog in Botswana. 

Another special feature of the camp is the afternoon river cruise. The unique double deck boat allows several guests the opportunity to drift along the river while enjoying spectacular views, mammal and bird life while sipping at your ‘sundowner’ of choice. For those guests who enjoy fishing, there is ample room to throw a line in the water while the boat meanders along.

The camp’s compliment of 22 staff is there to look after our guests quietly and efficiently, ensuring a relaxing and peaceful stay.
