Lebala means ‘wide open spaces’, and the elegant Lebala Camp is located in 2,320 kms2 of private unfenced wilderness area in the Kwando Reserve in the Okavango Delta’s grasslands. Set amongst vast plains scattered with Illala Palms, Lebala Camp has a swimming pool and a game viewing hide on site. 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. After dark, spotlights are switched on and the game drives expose 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 include Natal Nightjar, Pennantwinged Nightjar and a large variety of owls.
There are eight spacious, luxurious tents set on raised teak sundecks and featuring an entrance foyer, large bedroom and living area. The rooms are on raised Zimbabwean teak decks, and access is via the front veranda. Each tent is surrounded by shade cloth walls, with a variety of curtains and shades, so you can decide how much light you want to let in.
