|Hidden from the world within Botswana`s Okavango Delta and situated just off the north~western tip of Chiefs Island, is the secret paradise of Mombo, situated deep within the Moremi Game Reserve. |
The `new` Mombo Camp is situated deep within the Moremi Game Reserve, on a scenic island about 800 metres from the old Mombo.

Large concentrations of wildlife occur right in front of the new camp. It is not impossible to see up to twelve different mammal species from the comfort of your veranda! Giant umbrella thorns and Ilala palms dot the expansive plains to create a magnificent savannah landscape alongside the marshes and floodplains of the Delta.
As a year~round exclusive wildlife destination (especially for predators), Mombo has a record unequalled in Africa. This area provides one of the highest quality wildlife viewing opportunities on earth. Many of the Cheetah photos reproduced in National Geographic`s December 1999 issue and the photos of wild dog in the May 1999 issue were taken here. Mombo was rated as one of the top destinations of the `Ultimate Safari` in the March 1999 issue of Conde Nast Traveler. Mombo also ranks as one of the best lodges in Southern Africa according to the July 2000 issue of Harpers and Queen.
Elephant, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and all the major predators are common in the region. A large pack of Wild Dogs frequents the area around the camp and has been successful in raising many litters in recent years. The excellent game at Mombo has made this area Botswana`s top wildlife documentary location. National Geographic, the BBC and many others have filmed here. Birdlife is prolific, with waterfowl and waders being particularly common.
The design of the new Mombo is radically different from the old Mombo while still retaining its tented charm. The camp has a total of 12 identical guest rooms divided into two distinct and independent camps (Mombo & Little Mombo). MOMBO has 9 rooms. Each tented room is raised off the ground offering great views over the floodplains. The new rooms will have a tented camp feel, but are luxuriously appointed. The bathrooms are en suite, including an indoor shower with hot and cold running water. There is also an outdoor shower. The main living area is under thatch and canvas. There are pools at both Mombo and Little Mombo camps. We will have raised walkways to link bedrooms and the living area. Mombo Camp has a `kgotla` or boma for outdoor dining under the stars. Resident massage therapists are now available and guests can receive in-tent massage treatments. These can be booked in camp.
