Place: Located in the centre of the Jao Reserve, Kwetsani is ideally positioned on an elongated island covered with palm, mangosteen and fig trees. The surrounding floodplains are home to a number of "Delta specials" - species that are found in few other places on Earth. Depending on the water levels, Kwetsani offers excellent land and water activities, viewing wildlife by mekoro or on game drives, allowing guests to see all aspects of the Delta's makeup. During times of high water, Kwetsani boats to Hunda Island for game drives, complete with a picnic for a full-day excursion.
Accommodation: Five luxurious “tree house” tents are elevated so as to take in the view. The main area includes a dining room and lounge area situated under a cool thatched roof, and leads onto an expansive wooden deck that looks out over an enormous floodplain often dotted with plains game. A plunge pool is the perfect spot to relax or watch the animals below.
Purpose: Kwetsani is dedicated to community upliftment and assists the Jao village community with various contributions, including food, clothing and support of the elderly.
