Main description of Lebala Camp

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 offers superb wildlife sightings, with elephant, hippo, giraffe, lion and buffalo all plentiful. Spotlights switched on at night give guests a glimpse of elusive nocturnal species, including leopard. A staff of 22 caters to the guests’ needs, and 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 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.
