Lebala Camp

Lebala Camp is a tented lodge surrounded by the floodplains of the Kwando River in the remote Kwando Concession of the Greater Linyanti region.

Lebala Camp is a great game viewing camp with possibilities to see a full range of predators including wild dogs. Lagoon Camp (sister camp 2 hours’ drive to the north) tends to be a little more guaranteed for wild dog sightings, but as a consequence we find the ambience and schedule a little more relaxed at Lebala, which suits many travellers a lot more.

The Kwando Reserve offers genuine exclusivity and wilderness, and game viewing from Lebala is a very exclusive business. Accommodation at Lebala is comfortable and spacious, without being overly luxurious, whilst food and hospitality are very good without being the prime focus of the camp. Fundamentally, Lebala offers a great all round big game experience, with good guides, and provides four star comfort and hospitality.


Lebala caters for 20 guests in nine tented suites, including a family tent which consists of a double room and second twin room, with shared bathroom facilities. Each tent is raised onto wooden platforms and has an en suite bathroom…
