Mombo, Moremi Game Reserve, Okavango Delta, Botswana
Located in the heart of Botswana's Okavango Delta, Mombo Camp is the flagship property of the luxury safari operator Wilderness Safaris. Widely recognised as the finest safari camp in Africa, Mombo is Botswana's most famous property, offering an incredibly high safari experience and a unique approach to 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.
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.
