Situated on Mombo Island, just off the northern tip of Chief's Island, within the Moremi Game Reserve, Mombo Camp is built under the shade of large trees overlooking a wonderful floodplain teeming with wildlife. Famed for frequent sightings of lions, it provides some of the best big-game-viewing in Botswana and is located in a drier area of the Okavango Delta. Nine spacious and luxurious guest tents, raised two metres above the ground on stilts, offer breathtaking views over the plains and are elegantly and traditionally decorated in a typical prospector style - featuring wooden decked floors inside and out, canopied beds, comfortable sofas, and canvas chairs and wooden bistro tables on the decks, along with private salas each furnished with a day-bed large enough for two. The main living and dining area is under thatch and there is a traditional boma for delicious dinners under the stars. Large concentrations of game gather in front of the camp - including lions, leopards, elephants, hippos, giraffes and buffaloes - and guests can spend their siesta time watching a variety of animals without even having to leave their private deck to do so. As you would expect of a camp of this calibre, the service here is superb.

On Safari

The excellent game at Mombo Camp has made this area Botswana's top wildlife documentary location. National Geographic, the BBC and many others have filmed here, regarding Mombo Camp as having some of the best all-year-round game-viewing in Africa. With the added bonus of being the only place in Botswana where the 'Big Five' can be seen, Mombo's game-viewing is not only unique, but constantly superb throughout the year.

Abundant big-game-viewing is possible in all seasons, with the highlight of the area being the vast concentrations of all the plains game and their predators - especially big cats. Lion and leopard sightings are particularly good, with resident prides of lions being seen on virtually every game-drive, and leopards being so undeterred by people that they have been seen walking straight through camp (on one occasion, actually sitting on the dining table!). Guests can also see large herds of buffaloes, cheetahs, wild dogs, elephants, White and Black Rhino, hyenas, giraffes, wildebeest and zebras. Birdlife is prolific here, with waterfowl and waders being particularly common.
