Kwando Reserve


Kwando is one of three reserves (including Linyanti and Selina) that lie between Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta. These three concessions form what essentially is a “mini Okavango Delta,” but with the addition of abundant big game as in Chobe National Park. This is especially true of elephants, as this entire region has been the center of some of the highest densities of African elephant during August, September, and October each year. These concessions are home to a variety of other animals, including crocodile, hippo, sitatunga, lechwe, southern giraffe, buffalo, lion, wild dog and spotted hyena.


Now that the Savute Channel and Selinda Spillway routinely flow after more than 25 years, much of this big game remains during the dry season (May to November). Kwando Reserves’s natural boundaries are defined by the Kwando River to its east and the Selinda Spillway to its south. The Kwando River flows to the southeast, intersecting the Selinda Spillway and Savute Channel (Selinda Reserve’s natural boundaries), then changing its flow towards the northeast as the Linyanti River.
