Lebala comprises eight huge chalets, raised above the floodplains on wooden decks, with private verandas on which to savour your morning tea or coffee. The large bedrooms have vast, super-king beds, and safari furniture with delicate nods to luxury without being pretentious. The en-suite bathroom features a free-standing Victorian bath and large outdoor double shower. The walls are seemingly open, an unobstructive mix of canvas and mosquito-netting, giving you breathtaking views across the wilds outside.
The main areas are connected by raised platforms, keeping you lifted above the seasonal water channels. Wherever you go, you’ll have views of the endless sea of grass, where elephant and buffalo often graze nearby. The spacious dining area, lounge, bar, and campfire are all excellent areas in which to relax during the day or after your evening activity, sharing your experiences with the staff and other guests. There is also a swimming pool in which to cool off and admire the view across the plains.
Lebala Camp shares this enormous area of land in northern Botswana with its sister camp, Lagoon Camp, and because the concession is private you can enjoy unique activities in complete privacy. Walking safaris with an armed guide and tracker pique all your senses, and night with a spotlight give an exclusive view of elusive, nocturnal creatures. There is also a hide close to the camp where you can enjoy exciting ‘close up’ game viewing and bird watching.
