In the extreme north of Botswana, the stylish Lebala Camp stands in lush, open grasslands in the south of the private Kwando Reserve. This vast reserve is a largely dry wildlife area with a reputation as a top African safari destination for big game – focusing especially on the predators.
Our view of Lebala Camp
We have visited Lebala Camp very regularly over the years and its laid-back style hasn't changed, even though the camp's fabric has been upgraded. The accommodation is good, and the Kwando Reserve has excellent wildlife, especially during the dry season. Most visitors come wanting the single-minded focus behind its activities, and the great sightings of wild dogs, cheetah and lion that it often delivers. However, a few find that this blinkered approach detracts from a wider appreciation, and regret that there’s no time for observing the area's less iconic species. As a balance, our more recent trip suggests that nowadays, this focus isn’t necessarily as strong as it used to be.
