Kwando Lebala Camp Description
Situated in the south of the Kwando Concession on the Linyanti which forms the boundry between Botswana and Namibia, Kwando Lebala Camp is a tented camp. The eight spacious tents are unique and were designed specifically for this camp. Each one is built on a raised teak deck, 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, powered by LP gas for hot water on demand. Each secluded tent has its own sundeck, and is set back among the trees. The endless vistas from the large windows and decks across the vast plains, make Lebala one of the finest wilderness camps in Africa.
There is a large bar and lounge area that overlook the fire pit where grand stories are told in the evenings! Meals are also served here is the weather is good. A small plunge pool with deck is available for guests to cool off in.

Night drives offer guests the opportunity to see the nocturnal species such as Civet, Large- and Small-spotted Genet, Honey Badger, and Spring Hare. Nocturnal birding, especially Owls, is also excellent here.
Morning game drives take place just after sunrise and are conducted by experienced guides and trackers. The drives last between 3 and 4 hours during which one can expect to see a variety of animals. Maximum of 6 guests per vehicle in individual seats ensures maximum comfort.
Guided bush walks focus on the eco-systems and smaller creatures of the African bush. Lagoon offers walks but at the guides discretion due to concentrations of elephant at certain times of the year.
Fishing tackle is provided for spinner fishing, which is available at most of the camps. Guests are welcome to bring their own fly-fishing equipment. The main species are bream, pike, catfish and tiger fish. The camps work on a catch and release system.
