Lebala Camp fronts onto the Linyanti Wetlands where the perennial and southerly flowing Kwando River disappears into the vast marshes before emerging as the Linyanti River, flowing in a north easterly direction. Lebala means “wide open spaces” in the local Setswana dialect which aptly describes this incredible area.
The camp has been recently renovated in a modern bush architectural design. The eight spacious, open tents are unique, each built on a raised teak deck and with expansive views, laid out with maximum comfort and privacy in mind.
The tents have an entrance foyer with a reading and writing area, en-suite bathrooms with Victorian claw foot bathtubs, “his and hers” washbasins and flush toilets. The bathrooms lead out to a reed enclosed open-air shower with hot and cold running water on demand. The main lodge is under thatch featuring a bar, dining area and open lounge connected on wooden walkways to a plunge pool on raised decking and the boma area.
At Lebala Camp, the activities concentrate on open vehicle game drives and walking safaris. However, game walks are at the guides’ discretion due to the concentrations of elephant. Lebala Camp offers off road and night game drives – night drives being a specialty at Lebala with its high-visibility plains.
The wetlands and flood plains around Lebala offer a wonderful variety of wildlife with excellent sightings of elephant, hippo, lechwe, zebra, giraffe, impala, wildebeest, kudu, tsessebe, roan, sable, buffalo and the ever present predators; wild dog, lion, cheetah and hyena.
Tented rooms, outdoor shower, large bathtub, thatched bar, dining room, lounge, boma and plunge pool.
