Lebala Camp overview
Lebala means ‘wide
open spaces', and the elegant Lebala Camp is located in 2,320 kms2
of private unfenced wilderness area in the Kwando Concesstion in the Linyanti marsh
region in northern Botswana.
Set within vast
plains scattered with ilala palms, Lebala Camp offers superb wildlife
sightings, with elephant, hippo, giraffe, lion and buffalo all plentiful.
Spotlights switched on at night can give you a glimpse of elusive nocturnal
species, including leopard.
There are eight
spacious, luxurious tents with mosquito net walls to allow cooling breezes to
flow through the tent. They are set on
raised sundecks, with an entrance foyer, large bedroom and living area. The
ensuite bathrooms at Lebala Camp have bathtubs, dual washbasins and flush
toilets and lead out to reed-enclosed, open-air showers.
Excellent food is
served in the thatched, open-sided dining room and you can take coffee or a
nightcap around the camp fire.
Lebala Camp has a
high staff to guest ratio ensuring very high quality service.
There is a swimming
pool and a game viewing hide on site.
Lebala is in the open plains of the Linyanti Marshes in Kwando Concession in northern Botswana. Rooms:
There are 8 en-suite tents – all with bath & double outside showers – including a family room.Activities:
The camp uses open 4x4 vehicles for game drives. They use a team of a driver/guide plus a spotter (or tracker) who sits at the very front of the vehicle. This combination of expertise makes for usually very successful game drive experiences. The vehicles do not have to stay on track – so off-road drives are common here.
Night drives and walks (seasonal) are also possible here. Facilities:
There is a swimming pool and a game hide. Dining:
Guests are welcomed for meals in the open-sided thatched dining room. The meals are very good quality. Children:
Children are very welcome in camp. It is possible to book a specific ‘family safari’ in Kwando camps. This means that you will have your own private vehicle, guide and tracker. The team will help keep the children entertained both on game activities and back in camp, giving you some time to relax. Kids tend to love using the spotlights at night, making cards out of natural materials, helping chef to prepare snacks, fishing, making print castings … They will be kept busy and happy! Health:
This is a malarial area.

"Another well appointed camp, although we missed the choir that had welcomed us at both Kanana and Sango. Best food from three very good offerings. Bate, our guide, was exceptional in identifying the bird life we saw. Highlight was a group of 80 or so elephants emerging from the trees including a week old infant suckling it\'s mother. "

"Again, I loved Lebala. Roger our guide was fabulous - again how these guys spot the wildlife is beyond me. The lodge is wonderful, spacious and clean but again its the wildlife we were there for and Lebala came up trumps, with lions, wild dogs and probably one of the best leopard sightings I've ever had."

"My excellent guide here was new to the camp and there was initially a bit of a power struggle between him and I and the more established tracker. With the support of the excellent manager however, all was sorted and with a different tracker, we had a hugely successful and fun experience. It was here whilst looking for birds that we came across 4 lionesses hunting with 2 young cubs, tracking and killing a warthog. Grim but fascinating."

"The most fabulous place and a wonderful end to our holiday. Jeff and Vera (relief managers) really did pull out all the stops to make sure their guests are relaxed and looked after. Nothing is too much trouble, they did a great job. And our tracker and guide made the gameviewings so much more than just looking at the animals."
