Lebala simply means 'wide open spaces' and that is what you can enjoy at this Kwando Safaris destination. Perfectly situated in the 232,000 hectares Kwando Reserve this is an unfenced wilderness. As the southerly flowing Kwando River disappears into the vast marshland to the east, you can enjoy unsurpassed views of nature. The reserve is home to a wide variety of Africa's favourites such as zebra, wildebeest, impala, giraffe and tsessebe. You can also find elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion, cheetah and hyena.
The camp boasts nine custom-designed tents featuring unique mosquito net walls which allow an unobstructed flow of cooling breezes and stunning views. These spacious tents offer a private viewing deck, bathroom and luxurious double outdoor showers. For families, there is a specific tent that features a twin bedroom.
The heart of the camp is the main area which boasts a small swimming pool, a communal fireplace and dining room, a curio shop, bar and lounge area complemented with a small library. For those seeking an intimate experience in the bush outdoor private dinners can be organised by the poolside or by the fireplace for special occasions.
Kwando Safaris is a proud member of Pack for a Purpose. This is an initiative that allows travellers to make a lasting impact in the local community. If you save just a few kilos in your suitcase and take supplies for the Mummy's Angels Project that is also supported by Kwando, you will make a priceless impact in the lives of families and children.
One of Botswana's most famous game reserves, the Kwando Reserve offers outstanding game viewing in an exclusive environment. Diverse activities are on offer, including day and night drives and walking and boating safaris. The concentration of elephant and buffalo herds here beggars belief, and vast numbers of predators give rise to plenty of explosive predator action. This is one of the finest places in Africa to view big game.
The Kwando Reserve has also become recognised as one of the premier places in Africa to view the endangered African Wild Dog - over the last eight years, dogs have denned here every year. If you travel between July and August, the chance of seeing pups is high and viewing dogs at any time of the year is a real possibility. It is also worth noting that the elephant population in the high season months (August, September and October) is so high that the camps often stop walking safaris completely but this is not the case at Kwando Safaris Camps! Guests can enjoy tailormade walking safaris in safe spaces where you can observe the smaller creatures that make up the ecosystem. Big game is in abundance in this reserve.
