Please note: Mombo and Little Mombo are currently undergoing a rebuild. During this period, beginning 25 April 2017, Mombo Trails Camp will provide a unique, premium experience for our guests. Mombo is famed as the “place of plenty.” Its location in a ‘bottleneck’ at the tip of Chief’s Island, and the enrichment of the surrounding plains by the annual inundation, results in arguably Africa’s most intense wildlife-viewing experience. Mombo has also become the epicentre of a continentally-important rhino relocation and conservation programme. Mombo’s nine spacious tents afford unimpeded views over a floodplain teeming with wildlife. Each guest tent is luxuriously appointed with polished wooden floors, and an outdoor shower and thatched sala to allow an even greater degree of closeness to the wonders of the Okavango. INSIDER TIP: Chat to the Rhino Monitor if he’s in camp about the largest cross-border translocation of black rhino ever undertaken!

Mombo Camp, on Mombo Island just off the northern tip of Chief’s Island, is built under large shady trees and overlooks a wonderful floodplain teeming with wildlife. Accommodation comprises nine spacious tents raised off the ground, all built to maximise the vistas over the plains. The tent interiors are elegantly furnished with polished parquet floors, complete with an outdoor thatched sala – an ideal vantage from which to watch passing game. Bathrooms are en-suite, with indoor and outdoor showers.
The main living and dining area is under thatch and there is a boma for traditional dinners, small library and a plunge pool to relax in the heat of the day. Large concentrations of plains game often occur in front of camp and guests may view a variety of animals without even leaving the veranda. Informative game drives explore the savannah and floodplain mosaics of Chief’s Island with prolific wildlife-viewing opportunities.
