Mombo Camp is a luxury Botswana safari camp situated off the north western tip of Chiefs Island within the Moremi Game Reserve, Okavango Delta. Mombo Camp offers abundant big game viewing and is arguably the finest safari camp in Botswana. Large concentrations of wildlife occur right in front of the camp. Mombo Camp is the perfect Botswana Safari destination for guests keen on seeing the ‘Big Five’. It is not uncommon to see all of the ‘Big Five’ during one safari game drive at Mombo Camp.
Mombo Camp has 9 luxuriously furnished tents, raised off the ground with breathtaking views over the plains. The guests’ rooms and connecting walkways 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 including an indoor and an outdoor shower. The dining room, pub and living area is under thatch and the camp has a boma for wonderful dinner under the stars and for exchanging tales of the days events with other guests. This area overlooks 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 4×4 vehicles, guests are led on these drives by experienced game guides. Mombo Camp offers abundant big game viewing and is rated by Africa Uncovered as the best Botswana Safari experience there is. 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.
As a year-round exclusive wildlife destination (especially for predators and Leopard in particular) Mombo Camp has a record unequalled in Africa. Mombo provides one of the highest quality wildlife viewing opportunities on earth. (Many of the Cheetah photos reproduced in National Geographic’s December 1999 issue were taken here). The excellent game at Mombo has made this area Botswana’s top wildlife documentary location. National Geographic, the BBC and many others have filmed here.
Mombo Camp is a highly recommended Safari camp and is very much in demand.
