Mombo Camp offers the finest game viewing experience in Botswana's Okavango Delta.

'The place of plenty'

Mombo Camp is located in the Mombo Concession, on the northern tip of Chief's Island within the Moremi Game Reserve. The area boasts enormous concentrations of plains game and predators which begin virtually on Mombo's decks, with the surrounding floodplains teeming with game year-round.

Built under large, shady trees, Mombo's nine spacious en-suite tents are raised two metres from the ground providing excellent views, with a long veranda, a sala and indoor and outdoor showers. The camp's main living, bar and dining areas are under thatch, while the boma adds traditional flavour to delicious dinners under the stars. There are two plunge pools in which to soak and a gym to work off the excellent food.

Highlights
  • Arguably the best big game viewing in all of Africa
  • Bountiful hunting ground for large prides of lion and star-struck leopard
  • A sumptuous and luxurious camp in the midst of the Delta

Overview

The summer month of January at Mombo Island offered an abundance of life springing after December's rain pour. we had a dry spell that lasted for almost three weeks, causing a slight drying out of the vegetation and a slowing down of the rampant growth typical of this period. A verdant cloak of vegetation coats the landscape and the air has a crispness. Rain colors the vista and with the absence of dust everything seems sharper and brighter, carrying vision further, as though brought to super focus. Butterflies and flowers compete to color the floodplains and the interior woodlands are crowded with wildlife. Grazing herds of Zebra, Impala and Red Lechwe number most amongst the game, with strong herds of buffalo and elephant roaming in extraordinary numbers on Mombo Island.
