Located on the floodplains of the Kwando River, deep in the eastern marshlands of the 232,000-hectare Kwando Reserve, the name “Lebala” aptly translates as “wide, open spaces.” Here, you’ll enjoy prime wildlife watching, spectacular views and peaceful riverside ambiance.
Lagoon Camp is owned by the Kwando Safaris group, which is one of the best photography safari companies in Botswana; noted for gorgeous camps set in diverse wildlife destinations (usually private concessions), highly trained and professional guides, plus a personal touch.
The Kwando concession stretches over 232,000 hectares of wilderness, yet there are only two camps in this private reserve (the other is Lebala’s sister property, Lagoon Camp). Both camps are capped at 16 guests each, so you’ll feel like you have this corner of the wild all to yourself.
The floodplains have their own unique ecosystem, home to an abundance of plains game species, such as tsessebe, giraffe, impala, wildebeest and zebra. Other species of look for include elephant, buffalo and hippo - therefore predators such as hyena, cheetah and lion are never far away.
Wildlife-watching activities available from Lebala include day, night and off-road game drives, plus walking safaris with local guides and tracker who know the land and its four-legged inhabitants best.
A diverse landscape of marshland, floodplains, bush, scrub, islands and water channels, the Kwando Reserve offers a wide range of environments and therefore a wide range of animal encounters. Don’t miss the resident African wild dogs; although critically endangered, Kwando is one of the best places on the continent to see them.
