Lebala Camp

Chobe & the North

Rating: Deluxe    

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 northern Botswana near the Namibian border. 

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. The swimming pool is ideal after time out on safari. 

Lebala Camp has a high staff to guest ratio ensuring very high quality service. 


Location: Lebala is in the open plains of the Kwando Concession in northern Botswana. 

Rooms: There are 8 en-suite tents all with bath & double outside showers, including 1 family room.

Activities: The camp uses open 4x4 vehicles for day and night 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. Walking safaris 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 aged 6 years and over are very welcome in camp. Families with children aged between 6 and 12 need to book a private safari 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. 

: Mobile signals are intermittent.

Jenny Chantler

"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."

Jenny Cox
"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."
Dave and Jenny Cox
"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."
Ken Andrews
"I liked the smaller, more intimate setting of this camp."
Mr. Adrian Allen (14/09/2019)
