Definitely a 5 star camp. It is probably the best camp in Botswana that manages to combine sublime and subtle opulence whilst still maintaining the feeling of being a “Bush Camp”

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…!

Wildlife

The Mombo Concession is known as the “place of plenty”, highlighted by the massive concentrations of plains game and predators that can be seen. These include all the big cats, of which lion sightings are frequent. You can also expect to see leopard and cheetah, spotted hyaena, large herds of buffalo, elephant, white rhino, giraffe, blue wildebeest, Burchell’s zebra and much more. Birdlife is prolific around Mombo with African jacana, pygmy-geese, goliath heron and migrant waders in summer being particularly common.

The Camp

Camp Overview

Mombo Camp has 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. 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!


The Lodge 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

Lodge Layout

The main area consists of a large raised dining room, and comfortable lounge with private dining areas, wine cellar and library, with ample space for our guests to either get away and be private or be all together if they want to. 

Guests staying at the Duba Plains Suite automatically enjoy the services of a private game drive vehicle with their own guide as well as a private butler and chef. The camp’s centre-point is the gathering place of all bush experiences – the fire place on an extended deck into the swamp.

Camp Environment

The Mombo Concession comprises 45 000 hectares of the Moremi Game Reserve and is located on Chief’s Island in the central Okavango Delta. In the interior of Chief’s Island, mopane woodland is interspersed with belts of Kalahari sand and acacia. Towards the edges of the island regular seasonal flooding creates shallow floodplains dotted with wild date palm islands and riverine forest

Mombo Camp is located in a drier region of the Okavango Delta which is quite unlike the water-inundated areas elsewhere. Habitats here vary from secluded island sanctuaries with papyrus fringed channels to low sandy islands and dry grasslands where the vegetation and wildlife flourish.

Mombo Camp is more familiar to those who dream of the Africa of wildlife documentaries with open grassland plains dotted with acacia trees and thickets. Ancient floodplains, long since dried up, form permanent savannah divided by swathes of dense mopane and acacia woodland. Raised, tree-covered islands ranging from a single termite mound to large landmasses are common. Trees such as real fan palms, sycamore figs, jackalberry and mangosteen characterise these island communities separated by open grassland and fragrant wild sage.

Little Mombo and Mombo Camp are situated on Mombo Island, an extension of the north-western end of Chief’s Island which effectively splits the Okavango Delta into east and west. The whole of Mombo and Chief’s Island fall within the Moremi Game Reserve. This zone is also marked for low intensity safari usage, making both Little Mombo and Mombo Camp incredibly exclusive and remote.

Mombo Camp itself is situated in a belt of trees on an island which overlooks a floodplain. This area boasts enormous concentrations of plains game and predators – providing arguably the best big game viewing in all of Africa.
