Mombo Camp: Our View
Mombo consists of two small camps situated on the northern tip of Chief's Island in the heart of the Okavango Delta and is undeniably the flagship camp for Botswana.
The camp is extremely luxurious, but attracts generally the real safari crowd. The main issue here that we usually encounter, is securing availability. So it´s best to book a long way ahead, if you would like to stay here. Surrounded by seasonal waterways, the camps overlook the plains which are usually full of both plains game and predators.
Mombo consists of two small camps. The main camp has accommodation for 16 guests in eight luxurious, canvas walled, elevated rooms, connected by board walks. Little Mombo Camp is close by, but separately run and has four similarly elevated rooms sleeping just six guests.
The rooms are individually decorated and the views from your bed, private veranda and pool deck across the plain are breathtaking. There are similar views from the bar and dining areas, with a spotlight on the deck in front of the dining room at night to pick out predators crossing the camp.
Both camps offer land based wildlife activities in specially designed open 4x4 vehicles. Game viewing and birding in this area is excellent because the land around Chief's Island has been protected for many years and game numbers are high because many animals have migrated into the area from surrounding areas. The game here is extremely relaxed around vehicles and people.

Mombo: The Details
Long known as “the Place of Plenty,” Mombo boasts enormous concentrations of plains game and predators and is considered to be one of the best areas for game viewing in Africa.
Rebuilt in 2018, Mombo aims to maintain the traditions and history of the OLD camp, as well as to celebrate one of their greatest conservation successes: the reintroduction of black and white rhino into the wilds of Botswana.
The eight spacious tents afford sweeping views over a floodplain teeming with wildlife. The sitting room, separate bedroom and bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers and bathtub with copper and brass fittings all contribute to the ideal of responsible luxury.
This camp is booked on an all-inclusive basis with accommodation, meals and drinks (no premium brands), activities and laundry service. Children from 6 years and older are welcomed here on request.
