ebala means 'wide open spaces', and the camp is located in the Kwando Reserve’s 232,000 hectares of private unfenced wilderness. Here, the southerly flowing Kwando River disappears into the vast marshland to the east, outside of the Kwando Reserve. Lebala sits on the floodplains of the Kwando River and the special ecosystem is home to a wide variety of Africa’s plains game such as zebra, wildebeest, impala, giraffe, and tsessebe. The wonderful variety of wildlife also includes elephant, hippo, buffalo and the ever present predators of lion, cheetah and hyena. Lebala’s location away from the dense mopane woodland to the east of the Reserve facilitates the ease of traversing the concession looking for big game. The camp itself is comprised of eight custom designed tents, with unique mosquito net walls, allowing an unobstructed flow of cooling breezes and stunning views. Each spacious tent has its own viewing deck, bathroom and luxurious double outside showers.

This is our second time with Kwado safaris camps ( the last was 5 yrs ago). The camp is great with wonderful guides and staff. Saw lots of animals and our guide and tracker Wago and MP worked hard to find animals we wanted to see that we missed last trip. The reason for 4 stars is that a lot of their flooring is treated wood that gets slippery when wet, My husband had a fall. Otherwise a very good camp. Would recommend highly.

I went there on the second leg of a photo safari. The first part had been exceptional. The second part was just as good. The first day we followed a pack of wild dogs for only a short time before we witnessed them take down some pray. We witnessed a variety of animals and the guides went above and beyond every step of the way.

We spent 3 nights at Lebala Camp in March 2020. I've been to several Kwando camps over the past few years, and all are great (which is why I keep returning). The sightings, guide / tracker quality, staff and landscape are all great, and at one of the more affordable prices in Botswana. This was the first camp we visited during an 8 night stay, and the bar was immediately set very high. Here's a quick list of highlights: - 3 male lions near the airstrip on our first night - one of these males heard a female lion killing a warthog a good distance away and ran off (we followed) to steal her kill. We watched as he and his friend consumed the warthog - mother cheetah with 3 cubs (very shy, so we kept our distance and didn't stay for long) - rock python on the airstrip surrounded by jackals - 2 male lions (Sarge and Old Gun) chasing one of the 3 males we saw the first night, roaring, battling for territory, culminating in a brief fight - pack of 4 wild dogs hunting in a marsh area and eventually bringing down a red lechwe Meanwhile, the camp is beautiful as are the rooms. These are wood-frame tented rooms raised a few feet off the ground. There are no mosquito nets but they were able to put some up for us at our request. It wasn't very buggy at all though so I don't think nets were necessary. I believe I've read some reviews online where people said Lebala is looking dated. I disagree - it looks beautiful, and the food / staff / service are great. If you're visiting for the wildlife I think you'll be very happy. If you need immaculate luxury, silk sheets, every wine imaginable, and a personal masseuse following you around all day, then you're going to be disappointed and you should consider spending quadruple the price at a different camp. Our guide was Mayezi, with Mr. Moe tracking, and both were great. Mayezi spent some time teaching us about some of the little things like how to walk through thorny areas without shoes (he learned this before he was 10 years old), and general info about growing up in this area. Obviously their skills as guide / tracker were good too, as you can see from the sightings we had. On my next visit I'd be glad to work with either / both of them again.

We enjoyed a four night stay here on our first Botswana safari adventure, having travelled overland from Lagoon camp. The camp itself is a little dated, the rooms are small & very close together, which reduces privacy & the sense of peace. The staff are great, our guide Elvis was great & we enjoyed our stay here. I think we were unlucky with game viewing at this camp, which is the nature of safari. Glad to recommend, although slight issues.
