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. Each tent is elegantly furnished, complete with en-suite bathroom, a dressing area, indoor and outdoor showers and a bathtub that creates a sense of indulgence. The expanded deck includes a sala and plunge pool.
A large living and dining area looks out over that same view, while Mombo’s famous traditional dinners are hosted in the nearby boma. Mombo shares a boutique, spa, gym and lap pool with Little Mombo. Large concentrations of plains game often occur in front of camp; you may see a variety of animals without even leaving the veranda.
INSIDER'S TIP: Arguably the best big game viewing in all of Africa with bountiful hunting ground for large prides of lion and leopard.
Place: Located just off the northern tip of Chief’s Island, the largest landmass in the Okavango, Mombo is considered the most fertile area in the Delta, with its mix of habitats attracting large herds followed by numbers and varieties of predators.
Accommodation: Our recently-rebuilt flagship camp maintains the integrity of its pristine environment through the use of natural materials, minimal human footprint and 100% solar status. Elevated on wooden decks beneath towering shade trees, Mombo overlooks a floodplain teeming with game. Elegant, expansive guest tents celebrate Mombo traditions while a large deck and plunge pool are ideal vantage points from which to observe the passing wildlife.
Purpose: Since 2001, Mombo has been the centre of a unique partnership between Wilderness Safaris and the Botswana Government in a pioneering rhino conservation programme that has seen healthy breeding populations of both Critically Endangered black rhino and Near Threatened white rhino reintroduced to and living in the Okavango Delta.
