Mombo Safari Camp, and Little Mombo
Located in the heart of Botswana's Okavango Delta, Mombo Camp is the flagship property of the luxury safari operator Wilderness Safaris. Mombo camp is widely recognised as the finest safari camp in Africa with its incredible game concentrations and interactions as well having a unique approach to luxury hospitality.
The Mombo Concession
The Mombo Concession, home to both Mombo and Little Mombo, sits on the North Eastern tip of Chiefs Island inside the Moremi Game Reserve, the centre of the Okavango Delta. Often referred to as the predator capital of Africa, the Mombo Concession hosts phenomenal concentrations of Africa's famous 'Big Five' in one of the most beautiful parts of Africa. Lilly scattered flood plains and palm fringed islands surround both camps as the crystal clear waters of the Okavango attract a remarkable diversity of African wildlife.
The game viewing here is well regarded as
some of the finest in Africa. Game surrounds camp at all times of
the year with the Mombo concession being one of the very few places
in Africa to provide world class game viewing throughout all the
seasons. The leopard and lion viewing especially is nothing short
of exceptional. Despite Mombo Camp being inside the Moremi Game
Reserve where night drives are not allowed, the game viewing is
exceptionally good, so good that you dont even need to leave the
camp to see something spectacular.
Mombo and Little Mombo
With nine tents at Mombo and three at the neighbouring Little Mombo, both camps are located at the top of one of the Okavango's most beautiful islands. Shaded by huge indigenous trees each guest room has views over flood plains that can literally teem with game. Mombo provides for some of the most luxurious accommodation on the continent yet manages not to spoil the sense of wilderness which makes safari in areas like this so special.
