Mombo Camp, one of Africa’s truly extraordinary safari camps, has become one of the world’s top tourist destinations for the simple reason that it is in the middle of perhaps the richest concentration of wildlife in the world
Hidden from the world within Botswana’s Okavango Delta on Chiefs Island, is the secret scenic island paradise of Mombo and Little Mombo Mombo location map
The summer rains turn Chief’s Island into a larder that provides ample feeding. Food is thus plentiful all year round and the game has little need to move any distance to survive
Only 5 vehicles are permitted in the area of 70000 hectares and 3 of them are owned by Mombo camp. Access into this area is only by aircraft.
The highlight is the concentration of plains game and all the predators – including the big cats.
Lion sightings are particularly good. Guests could also see Leopard, large herds of Buffalo, Cheetah, Wild Dog, Elephant, White and Black Rhino, Hyena, Giraffe, Wildebeest and Zebra, possibly from the comfort of your spacious Mombo safari tents.
In winter the floods of the Okavango River arrive, filling the plains with cool, clear water until the spring when the waters begin to recede, fish traps then develop thus attracting a multitude of water birds of every shape colour and size
The pure pleasure of watching wildlife as undisturbed as it must have been for thousands of years from right in front of the camp
Mombo Camp is a year round exclusive wildlife destination.
This camp can accommodate 18 guests with tour leader in spacious luxury tents (with one side open) on raised decks overlooking the surrounding plains and game
