With its 5 luxury tents perched high up in the trees, cozy open common area and cute plunge pool overlooking the plains, Kwetsani is a great place to discover the Delte Kwetsani is located in the Jao concession so off track driving is possible which makes game viewing so much more rewarding.

Dear Traveller973, Thank you for your wonderful review and high recommendation. Being a part of the Jao concession not only allows us the enjoyment and privilege to explore off road, when necessary, but more so the intimacy and seclusion that can only be found within a private concession. Thank you again. Wilderness Safaris
