Mombo Camp and Little Mombo are located in the Mombo Concession on the northern edge of Chief’s Island within the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. Known as, “the place of plenty” this region boasts massive concentrations of game and predators alike – providing perhaps the best big game viewing in all of Africa. The camp is built under large, shady trees and overlooks the floodplains which teem with wildlife all year round, starting practically at the brink of Mombo’s sundeck.
Newly rebuilt, the concept of Mombo Camp is to maintain the Mombo traditions and history stretching back nearly 30 years, as well as to celebrate our Conservation Purpose – indeed, one of our greatest conservation successes: the reintroduction of black and white rhino into the wilds of Botswana.
The eight large tented suites (including a family room) at Mombo Camp are elevated, so that those views out towards the floodplain can be enjoyed from the veranda and pergola, to say nothing of the pool deck with its private plunge pool. Inside, a sitting room, separate bedroom and bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers and a bathtub with copper and brass finishings all contribute to the Wilderness ideal of responsible luxury.
Little Mombo Camp is a smaller and more intimate camp and is an extension of the larger Mombo Camp. It shares the same island as its sister and offers the same high standards of accommodation and big game viewing.
Erected underneath a weaved canopy of branches, Little Mombo holds four decadent, rooms of spacious proportions, walled by strong canvas. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with an outdoor shower where guests can immerse themselves into nature.
Much of Little Mombo Camp overlooks the surrounding floodplains which offer some of the best big game viewing in the Okavango Delta. A sala, large veranda and lounge area provide ample place to relax and enjoy the view. Little Mombo Camp also has its own dining room, kitchen and pool. Larger groups are welcome to book additional rooms at sister Mombo Camp.
Activities & Wildlife at Mombo:
Activities at Mombo include morning and afternoon game drives. Open 4x4s provide an excellent vantage for viewing the high concentrations of game and all the predators – including the big cats. Lion sightings are frequent, and each encounter will be a new experience as these majestic predators go about their daily tasks. Guests at Mombo Camp can also expect to see leopard, wild dog, spotted hyena, large herds of buffalo, elephant, white rhino, southern giraffe, blue wildebeest and Burchell’s zebra.
Black and white rhino have been reintroduced to the region with outstanding success (albeit most are further away from Mombo Camp), thanks to the Botswana Rhino Reintroduction Programme. The Rhino Conservation Presentations will give guests a glimpse into the delicate plight of these prehistoric mammals, hard of hyde, yet gentle in demeanour. The 4C’s Centre will educate guests about the sustainable mission of the land, while a spa and gym will take the focal point back to the guests in terms of relaxation and exertion, respectively.
