Lebala Camp is in the 230,000 hectare Kwando concession, close to the Kwando River and the Linyanti marshes that form the boundary between Botswana and Namibia. Lebala meaning ‘wide open spaces’ in Setswana, is positioned located on a peninsula jutting into the marshland and the scenery is dominated by vast plains scattered with palms.
Accommodation & Facilities
Lebala has eight large safari tents on raised teaks decks, with expansive views. One tent has two bedrooms, ideal for a family, and all have en-suite bathrooms with inside baths and outside showers. Each tent has a shaded roof and a verandah at the front. Lebala has a large thatched mess building, with a dining room, a lounge and a bar. Outside there is an open air fireplace, and a small plunge pool.
Wildlife & Activities
The marsh, seasonal flood plains, savannah, and woodland scrub give Lebala a wide variety of habitat to access, and there are excellent wildlife populations as a result, particularly predators, large herds of elephant and buffalo, and wild dog. Wildlife viewing is by day and night drives on open safari vehicles, and guided bush walks. There is also a well-placed viewing hide in camp.
