Newly rebuilt, the concept of Mombo Camp is to maintain the Mombo traditions and history stretching back nearly 30 years, as well as to celebrate the major Conservation success possibly one of the greatest conservation successes: the reintroduction of black and white rhino into the wilds of Botswana.
The camp’s location – in the Mombo Concession on the northern tip of Chief’s Island within Moremi Game Reserve – is considered one of the best areas for wildlife in Africa. The area boasts enormous concentrations of plains game and predators which begin virtually on Mombo’s decks, the surrounding floodplains teeming with game year round.
Pure Okavango Inspiration
The nine large tented suites (including a family room) are elevated above the ground, so that those views can be enjoyed from the veranda and pergola. Each tent has been built in exactly the same place as its predecessor – with a slight increase in size out towards the floodplain to facilitate a pool deck with a private plunge pool. Inside, a sitting room, separate bedroom and bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers and a bathtub with copper and brass finishings all contribute to the Wilderness ideal of responsible luxury.
A Sense of Past and Present
In completion, they created a camp that seemingly dissolves into its environment, capturing the essence, spirit and feeling of its surroundings. By paying specific attention to the finer details at Mombo it becomes evident just how the designers conceptualised the smallest factors; guests will notice a colonial under current; sherry decanters, military chests, brass lamps and writing desks coupled with a naturalist feel created by wicker furniture, reed blinds, porcupine lampshades, Kuba and Show cloths and original inspirations such as pygmy beds from the Congo that have been converted into coffee tables! The result is an eclectic mixture of old and new that compliments the diversity of Mombo's habitat and subtly caters for every lavish want.
