Kwando Lagoon & Lebala Camps, Botswana

You’ve heard the saying that two heads are better than one? The same could be said of these two northern Bostwana safari camps.

Why settle for just one safari camp, when you can experience two and enjoy different sensations in each? Only 30 kms apart, both Kwando lagoon and Lebala enjoy the exclusivity of being set amidst their own private concessions. They do, however, offer you two quite different approaches to viewing wildlife.

Lebala means ‘wide open spaces’ in  Setswana, and is dominated by plains stretching from horizon to horizon, dotted with clumps of trees and giving way to wooded savannah.

Kwando Lagoon, as its name suggests, overlooks the Kwando River and is set in the cool shade of an ebony and marula tree forest – a favourite watering place for huge herds of elephants and other game.
