Okavango Delta, Botswana
Mombo Camp lies along the northern tip of Chief’s Island, in the private Moremi Game Reserve within the famed Okavango Delta. Overlooking the floodplain beneath broad, shady trees, the camp and its surroundings pulse with wildlife. This section of Chief’s Island hosts an overwhelming concentration of plains game and large predators, particularly lions, and offers guests some of the best game-viewing opportunities in Botswana. The camp’s nine oversized tents and its common areas - including the lounge, veranda, thatched and open-air dining areas, bar and plunge pool - are all raised on wooden decks and walkways to allow breathtaking views of the surrounding plains. Each tent features a spacious bedroom and sitting area, private deck, and en-suite bathroom complete with indoor and outdoor showers.
On a daily basis, large concentrations of game frequent the front of the camp, allowing guests to experience exciting views without even leaving the veranda. In fact, it’s not unusual to find game wandering directly through camp at nearly any time of day.
Activities at Mombo include morning and afternoon game drives in open 4x4 vehicles to explore the savannah and floodplains. Common sightings include lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, elephant, spotted hyena, southern giraffe, blue wildebeest, Burchell’s zebra and large buffalo herds. Black and white rhino have been successfully reintroduced to the region; however it still remains a rare treat to catch a glimpse of these shy creatures.
