The sister camp to the mighty Mombo… Little Mombo is an intimate off-shoot and stands alone as a self contained lodge… for those of you who like elegance but in a smaller way.
It is perfectly situated overlooking a vast floodplain whilst protected in a tree lined island, the area is a captured environment for large numbers of game. Not many camp camps in Botswana maintain the extraordinary numbers of game actually in the camp itself, and its not at all uncommon to see a whole herd of buffalo sleep at night under the high walkways that criss-cross the camp.
Service levels here are extremely high, from the standard of the accommodation to the food… Fantastic…You come here because its MOMBO!
The sheer numbers and diversity of wildlife surrounding Little Mombo Camp all year round ensure that every guest has a breathtaking big game viewing experience: from herds of buffalo to the diminutive steenbok (a pretty dwarf antelope), to elephant, white rhino, southern giraffe, impala, blue wildebeest and Burchell’s zebra. Lion and leopard are found here; and even smaller predators like serval and side-striped jackal are occasionally seen.
This abundance and variety of wildlife owes much to Little Mombo Camp’s positioning on the ecotone between east and west Okavango Delta. To the east lies the ancient Kalahari sands and grassland vegetation, and to the west lies the more modern, water-borne sediments and vegetation of the Okavango fan. The annual cycle of flooding also allows large numbers of wildlife to utilise both habitats to the maximum.
Between March and May, when the waters come, large mammals are able to move into the Chief’s Island area, which contains rich resources of grass and Acacia woodland. The wetlands are fringed by large hardwood trees, containing shade, cover, nesting areas, and food, for a wide variety of mammals and birds. By September and October the waters have started to recede and leave behind vast floodplains of short, green grass when the islands are now at their driest. This is the secret to the amazing diversity and quantity of wildlife in the Mombo region.
Birdlife is prolific around Mombo Camp, with waterfowl like African Jacana, Pygmy-Geese, massive Goliath Heron and migrant waders in summer being particularly common.
It is no surprise that this richness and diversity of habitats, wildlife and birdlife is legendary amongst the tribal huntsmen of the 19th and 20th centuries. It was by their efforts to protect this legacy that the Moremi Game Reserve was established.
Little Mombo is the sister camp of the bigger Mombo Camp… and as such shares its vicinity and much of its style. They are attached to each other by a short walkway although Little Mombo is treated as a separate camp altogether.
Rebuilt in 2018, Little Mombo is a celebration of our conservation purpose, including the Botswana Rhino Reintroduction Project that takes place here. It combines luxury and service excellence with a celebration of the amazing natural splendour that is the Mombo Concession.
With just three tents tucked away on the other side of the same island, Little Mombo is a smaller, more intimate version of its sister camp.. Built under a shady canopy of jackalberry and sausage trees, overlooking a floodplain regularly visited by herds of herbivores (and their predators), the camp has its own facilities, including a dining area, boma, kitchen, lounge and pool, while being connected to Mombo via a raised boardwalk.
Renowned as “the Place of Plenty,” the enormous number and variety of wildlife around Little Mombo makes it a hugely sought-after wildlife-viewing destination.
Both Mombo camps have arguably the some of the best big game viewing in Africa. Located in the Mombo Concession on Chief’s Island in the heart of the Okavango Delta, Botswana, the sheer numbers and variety of wildlife all year round defy description. Little Mombo Camp is the Africa only seen in documentaries: from elephant to buffalo to tiny steenbok, vast herds of herbivores are trailed by numerous predators on the hunt!
Little Mombo is located in the Mombo Concession on the northern tip of Chief’s Island within the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. This area boasts enormous concentrations of plains game and predators – providing arguably the best big game viewing in all of Africa
