About Kwando Lebala Camp
The tented suites are spacious and comfortable, each have a reading and writing area, en-suite bathrooms with Victorian clawfoot 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. Each tent has its own sundeck, and is set back among the trees.
The wetlands and flood plains around Lebala offer a good variety of wildlife with fairly regular 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.
After dark, spotlights are switched on and the game drives expose our guests to nocturnal sightings of rare and elusive species such as, leopard, Selous Mongoose, small spotted genet, and aardwolf, to name a few. Nocturnal bird species that are encountered include Natal Nightjar, Pennantwinged Nightjar and a large variety of owls.
The guiding here is of a good standard, with the guides exceptionally keen to show guests the larger mammals and predators in the area, if you are keen to see as much big game as possible this is a great option.
Lebala is situated in the south of the Kwando concession, alongside the head waters of the Linyanti marshes that form the boundary between Botswana and Namibia. The southerly flowing Kwando river disappears into the vast marshland before re-appearing as the Linyanti river. The triangle formed by this vast wetland is home to the Mamili National Park in Namibia.
How to get there
11-hour international flight to Johannesburg, followed by a 2-hour international flight to Maun
When to go
Botswanaâs winter is during our British summer, and the weather is hot during the day, but it isn't a stifling heat, and cold at night. The summer months (British winter) can be hot and humid and there is a chance of rain. Botswana has one rainy season which runs between mid-December and runs through to mid-March.
