Located on the edge of a natural flood land, Lebala camp has slowly become renowned for both its superb guiding and excellent location in the Kwando concession. One of the best things about the Kwando camps, in our opinion, is that they use an extra tracker on game drives, thus increasing the chances of seeing everything around. The camp itself, with spacious and cool tents is very luxurious and a perfect place from which to explore the surrounding areas. Wild dog regularly den in the concession and, with a birding hide on hand, the game viewing can be spectacular.
Lebala Camp - The Details
Located in the private Kwando Safaris Concession in Northern Botswana, Lebala is about 1.5 hours flight from Maun. The concession, which has its own private airstrip, is found just to the West of Wilderness Safaris' Linyanti reserve and to the North of Great Plains Conservation’s Selinda Reserve.
Lebala (the Tswana word for 'wide-open plains') has nine tented rooms including a family room. Each tent has extensive views over expansive tracts of African plains and wetlands that comprise part of the Kwando - Linyanti flood plain system. The main communal area has equally impressive views of the plains in front as well as a small swimming pool, a bar and fire pit where evening drinks and morning tea are served.
Activities include game drives day and night as well as walking safari, subject to the number of elephant in the surrounding area! For those keen to venture off the beaten track, Lebala serves as the perfect Africa Safari
