Little Mombo Camp is an intimate extension of the larger Mombo Camp in the Moremi Game Reserve, Okavango Delta, BotswanaIt shares the same island as its sister and offers the same high standards of accommodation and big game viewing - some of the best in Botswana with panoramic vistas of the surrounding floodplains teeming with wildlife.

Little Mombo Camp is situated on Mombo Island, adjoining the northern tip of Chief's Island within the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta, northern Botswana. It is a smaller and more intimate camp than its sister, Mombo Camp, to which it is connected via a raised walkway.

Little Mombo Camp is built under a shady canopy and has three luxurious, spacious rooms under canvas with en-suite bathrooms and outdoor showers for guests looking to get closer to nature. Much of Little Mombo Camp overlooks the surrounding floodplains which offer some of the best big game viewing in the Okavango Delta. A sala, large veranda and lounge area provide ample place to relax and enjoy the view. Little Mombo Camp also has its own dining room, kitchen and pool.

Little Mombo | Mombo Camp’s has arguably 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 best big game viewing experience starts on the veranda at Mombo Camp, with wonderful concentrations of game occurring right in front of the camp. Guests often find animals wandering past, right under their rooms!

Activities at Mombo Camp include morning and afternoon game drives. Open 4x4s provide an excellent vantage for viewing the high concentrations of plains game and all the predators - including the big cats. Lion sightings are frequent. Guests at Mombo Camp can also expect to see leopard, wild dog, spotted hyaena, large herds of buffalo, elephant, white rhino, southern giraffe, blue wildebeest and Burchell's zebra.

Black and white rhino have been reintroduced to the region with outstanding success (albeit most are further away from Mombo Camp), thanks to the Botswana Rhino Reintroduction Programme.
