Lebala Camp

Lebala Camp is located in the southern part of the Kwando River Concession, home to the extensive grasslands and seasonal floodplains of the Linyanti marshes.

Lebala in Setswana means “open plains” which aptly describes the extensive grasslands and seasonal floodplains of the Linyanti marshes. This well established camp has an excellent reputation as being a great place for a safari.

Lebala has a reputation for predator action with lions known to hunt and kill mega fauna like buffalo and hippos.  A serious safari goer’s paradise.

The camp itself has a happy and friendly atmosphere.  The large communal dining area has open sides and a thatched room and leads out to the fire-pit where stories are swapped around the camp fire after dinner.  It is also here that early morning breakfast and coffee are served.

The rooms are large and open, with mesh windows offering unobstructed views of the outside.  The ensuite facilities feature a free-standing bathtub, double sinks and double outdoor showers.

The private veranda with views out over the surrounding seasonal floodplains is the perfect place to spend some free time during the day when not out pursuing that perfect photo opportunity.

Safari Experience

An early morning wake up starts the day with a quick, hearty breakfast of porridge/cereal, muffins, fruit, tea or coffee.  Then you head out on your activity with your guide and tracker.

Lebala operates two activities a day which include morning and afternoon game drives and seasonal walks. Game drives can operate off-road and at night and use a guide and tracker team.

Morning activities end around 11am, making way for brunch.  Then it’s relaxation time in camp, making use of the main areas or relaxing in your own tent.

Tea is served around 3.30pm with an array of savoury and sweet food before the afternoon activity then begins.  Return to camp is about 7.30-8.00pm for dinner.  Communal dining is the way at Kwando giving the opportunity to talk to your guide and other guests. After dinner enjoy a coffee or liqueur by the fire before bed.
