Lebala Camp is located in an open area of lush grassland close to the river that disappears into the Linyanti Wetlands in the southern sector of the private Kwando concession.

Lebala Camp means “wide open space” in Setswana and is very appropriate as the scenery around the camp is dominated by vast plains with scattered palms and tree clumps backed by wooded savannas.

The eight spacious tents are unique and designed specifically for the camp. Each one is built on a raised teak deck, laid out with maximum comfort and privacy in mind.

The tents have an entrance foyer with a reading and writing area, en-suite bathrooms with Victorian clawfoot bathtubs, “his and hers” washbasins and flush toilets. The bathrooms lead out to a reed enclosed open-air shower with hot and cold running water, powered by LP gas for hot water on demand.

Each secluded tent has its own sundeck, and is set back among the trees. The endless vistas from the large windows and decks across the vast plains, make Lebala  camps in Africa.

The main thatched open-sided dining room, adjacent to which is a comfortable lounge and bar area. This is a great area to relax as one side is open to the plains and the bar serves the coldest beer in Botswana. There is also a wonderful camp fire around which is a perfect place to enjoy pre or post dinner drinks. In the warmer months, it is also worth taking a dip in the small swimming pool.

Activities include morning and night game drives which are conducted by the camps specialist guides and trackers in open safari vehicles. The wetlands and flood plains around Lebala offer a wonderful variety of wildlife with excellent sightings of elephant, hippo, lechwe, zebra, giraffe, impala, wildebeest, kudu, tsessebe, roan, sable, buffalo and the ever present predators; wild dog, lion, cheetah and hyena.

After dark, spotlights are switched on and the game drives expose nocturnal sightings of rare and elusive species such as, leopard, Selous Mongoose, small spotted genet, and aardwolf, to name a few.

We revisited Lebala camp in June 2009, and as usual enjoyed the superb guiding. We had the most satisfying game drive tracking two females lions which we encountered after just over an hour of following their prints on and off road. We also enjoyed a short walking safari which was very exciting in such a game rich area.

Lebala Camp combines perfectly with the other Kwando camps – Lagoon, Kwara and Little Kwara.
