Lebala Camp

Lebala Camp

"Amazing sightings at Lebala"

2 nights Arrived 14 Oct 2013
"Great sightings: 2 hyenas taking an impala kill away from a leopard, lots of elephants, two male lions feeding on an baby elephant, herd of 500+ buffalos, hyenas den... and the hippos grazing at night around the tent. Nice camp setting and lovely staff at the camp made a great start to an unforgettable trip in Botswana.

The only remark is that the light breakfast before the morning game drive was really light on food offering, muffins only."

Chitabe Lediba

Chitabe Lediba

"unforgettable experience"

2 nights Arrived 16 Oct 2013
"Wildfife was great with predators sightings being the highlight: leopards, cheetahs, lions and hyenas in 2 days only....plus the resident elephant bull wandering around the camp at any time. But what make Chitabe Lediba unique are the people who work and run this camp. Kay and Mo were great hosts and BB, our guide, was simply outstanding: Spotting a leopard using monkeys alert calls...this is just beyond words...

The famlily tent was fantastic and the roar of a lion as wake-up call was unforgettable."

Tubu Tree Camp

Tubu Tree Camp

"Phenyo, our guide, gave us the moon"

2 nights Arrived 18 Oct 2013
"The camp setting among the marula trees is wonderful. Family tent, recently added, is outstanding. Although the wildlife was slightly quieter compared to the two other camps, it was totally compensated by the skills and kindness of our guide, Phenyo. Given that it was our third camp and we had been fortunate to see a lot of animals at the first two camps, we agreed with him to focus on quality rather than quantity of sightings. We were not disappointed. Phenyo was able to find a leopard by "collaborating" with a couple of giraffes who seemed to stare at something...well that was a female leopard on a tree.

The only minor improvement would be to be able to get cold water in the shower during the day given that it was very hot. We could only get cold water early morning and in the evening."
