Botswana - Okavango
Mombo Camp is situated on Mombo
Island, adjoining the northern tip of Chief's
Island, and is within the Moremi Game Reserve
in the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana. The
island is surrounded by open floodplains and the
camp itself is largely built in and around the
shade of some large mangosteen, ebony and fig
trees - overlooking a wonderful floodplain teeming
The camp has nine luxuriously
furnished tents, raised off the ground. The guests'
rooms and connecting walkways that connect are
up to two metres off the ground, allowing game
to wander freely through the camp - but at the
same time allowing for guest safety. One often
finds that animals take refuge under the rooms.
The canvas rooms are spacious and well appointed
and have en-suite facilities with an additional
outdoor shower for those who enjoy a shower under
The dining room, pub and living
area overlook the open plain in front of the camp
and there is a plunge pool for relaxing in the
heat of the day. Activities at Mombo include morning
and afternoon game drives in open 4x4 vehicles.
The camp offers abundant big
game viewing, arguably the best in Botswana. The
highlight is the concentration of plains game
and all the predators - including the big cats.
Lion sightings are particularly good. Guests could
also see Leopard, large herds of Buffalo, Cheetah,
Wild Dog, Elephant, White and Black Rhino, Hyena,
Giraffe, Wildebeest and Zebra.
