Brilliant game viewing at Lebala

Lebala is a very well run camp with Charles running it in a very professional but friendly way. Our room was huge and comfortable but the common areas less smart - but this didn't matter as all the staff seemed genuinely pleased to help and the food was a good mix of local and 'international' cuisine.

Our guide and tracker for the three days were Patna and Shoes: both excellent, listened to what we were interested in and found an amazing amount of game with leopard, cheetah and wild dogs being the mammal highlights. Also identified lots of birds as requested. We asked for an aardvark - and Shoes found one, only for it to disappear down its hole before any of us saw it!

The only one of our camps to use trackers, and as a result the one with the best game. Mark got a birthday cake and a song! And please pass on our thanks for forwarding the adaptor we left behind, which arrived later by personal delivery on our plane to Kanana!

Wild dogs at Lebala!

Lebala marked a return to landbased safaris after the Okavango Delta. The density of animals was greater.

The spacious tents were of interesting construction and has a wonderful view over the marshes - elephants regularly passed by.

The daily routine was slightly different with early breakfast of cereal and muffins before the morning drive and then a substantial brunch on return. All the meals were excellent and shared with our guides.

A highlight was the encounter with a pack of 14 wild dogs, chase and subsequent kill.

Great introduction to Kwando camps

Lebala was our first experience of an African bush camp and we enjoyed every minute. The proximity of hippo and elephant to our tent during the night was really quite a buzz. The game drives during our two-night stay were terrific thanks to the guide and tracker. The two sundowner drives at this camp were the best thanks to the choice of location.

The camp was full and we felt that this was the maximum number of other guests that we would want to interact with on this sort of holiday.

Highlight!

Lebala was the highlight of our safari. The camp was beautifully appointed, very comfortable, very exciting with hippos and elephants outside the tents at night. The staff could not have been better.

Our guide, Sughur (sp?), was just wonderful, quietly confident, highly professional. We felt very safe in his and the tracker's company. We had lots of laughs. We had great jeep-mates, coincidental, but it added to the overall enjoyment.

We had many exciting wildlife viewing experiences, some of which made the heart beat faster! But we did not see many cats, a disappointment, but not anyone's fault.

Lebala review-1st camp visited

This was the first of three camps we visited and proved to be an excellent start. We spent two night here and enjoyed it enormously. Our guide was good, bit difficult to tell with the tracker as he was quite a quiet individual.

Wildlife viewing was very good and a great variety on offer.

Overall a good experience at Lebala

Enjoyed our stay at Lebala, a very different area from Kwara, I don,t think that the game was in such high concentration here but we did have an amazing sighting of a lion, battle scarred, from defending his feeding on a female elephant that had probably died of natural causes.

The manager of the camp, I think his name was Duke, was extremely knowledgeable regarding the ecology of the area and we did think it might be interesting to be given a short talk about our surroundings as we found here that our guide was not particularly forthcoming. We still enjoyed our visit, the food was excellent and we enjoyed the local singing and dancing very much.

Our accommodation was lovely although we felt the chalet tents were a little close to our neighbors and didn't afford much privacy as you could hear practically everything from conversation to bathroom ablutions!

Lebala Camp review

We had a good time at Lebala. We had a good guide, but at times felt he could have been a bit more enthusiastic.

In terms of game the area was a bit quiet, but still we saw plenty (wild dogs) due to the active tracking.
