Place: The exclusive Qorokwe Concession encompasses over 26 180-hectares (over 64 692-acres) in a diverse habitat area of the south-eastern Okavango, bordering the renowned Moremi Game Reserve. The name Qorokwe means 'the place where the buffalo broke through the bush into the water' evoking the high-density game area in which this camp is situated. It owes its productivity to a mix of habitat types that lie between its western and eastern borders: the Santantadibe and Gomoti Channels respectively.
Wildlife: The Qorokwe Concession comprises various biomes, from scattered acacia woodland with herds of giraffe, zebra and various plains game – to pristine floodplains being home to curious red lechwe, and mud-encrusted buffalo bulls; whence the name Qorokwe is derived: 'The place where the buffalo broke through the bush into the water'. Besides the resident lion pride, elephant are a feature of this classic Okavango Delta setting.
Accommodation: Qorokwe Camp combines a contemporary style with a classic bush feel. Its nine elegant tents (including one very spacious family unit with a private plunge pool) are well shaded and catch the prevailing breeze. The whole camp, including the magnificent main area, overlooks a lagoon and its infinity pool is a focal point for the expansive views.
Purpose: In addition to Qorokwe’s commitment to a light carbon footprint, including 100% solar-generated power, this camp plays an important role in the empowerment of local communities through job creation and other income-generating opportunities. Qorokwe promotes the recovery of an area previously used for hunting, and demonstrates the importance of ecotourism in more peripheral concessions.
