Mombo Camp

Accommodation in Moremi Game Reserve

One of Botswana’s most iconic safari experiences, Mombo Camp is situated within Moremi Game Reserve – AKA ‘The Place of Plenty’ thanks to the plethora of wildlife that flourishes in this conservation success story.

Mombo Camp is enjoying its resurgence in iconic status thanks to its recent 2016 rebuild. Consistently voted among the best safari lodges in the world in its 30 years of operation, Mombo is that rare combination of extreme yet down-to-earth luxury, extraordinary animal sightings, admirable conservation commitments and stellar service. The revamp has taken the Mombo of old – with its heavy, dark-wood detailing, as if carved out of the forest itself – straight into the 21st century without losing any of its African wilds appeal.

Pale wood is on show in the massive suites and new common areas, while gleaming copper cladding and lean-lined furniture are evident in the modern lounge. The new 40-metre pool and deck help to make Mombo a designer destination … in what just happens to be one of the most remote places on earth. While the size of the massive private suites with their enormous wooden verandas and comfy two-man salas remains, the original thatch has given way to a less imposing tented roof – aiding natural ventilation and temperature management in this hot and heady part of the world. The camp’s ‘tread lightly’ philosophy means that it is elevated above its surrounds, with rooms and common areas linked by elevated walkways. There is also a solar plan in place for generating power.

Design details aside, the main reason why people make the journey to Mombo is for the unique wildlife viewing, which may well be some of the best in the Delta. Enormous numbers of plains game ensure that predators follow, and so you are guaranteed sightings of kills and extraordinary photo opportunities on virtually every outing. The successful reintroduction of both black and white rhino, plus visits from local elephant herds and tracking of the likes of lechwe, zebra, hyena and giraffe make for fascinating game viewing, but it is the leopard tracking that leaves its mark on many a guest. A sighting of a leopard snoozing in a tree post-kill truly is an unforgettable experience. Likewise, Mombo offers incredible birding: in the summer months, you may well spot the likes of the goliath heron and African jacana from the bird hide or even from the comfort of the camp itself.
