Wilderness Little Mombo
- Exclusive, intimate camp perfect for sole-use groups and families.
- Arguably the best year-round game-viewing destination in Botswana, with exceptional predator-prey sightings.
- The annual inundation forms a natural barrier that confines the animals to Mombo’s private wilderness area, while the remarkable concentration of big cats during summer, when the prey species have their young, means that Little Mombo is rightly known as ‘The Place of Plenty’ for its all-year wildlife abundance.
- Award-winning responsible-luxury safari camp in the heart of the magnificent Delta.
Destination: Intimate, exclusive, extraordinary. A beacon of conservation tourism, Wilderness Little Mombo leaves a light footprint in Botswana’s wild, wonderful Moremi Game Reserve. This part of the Okavango Delta is renowned for exceptional game viewing, particularly in summer when all manner of species congregate naturally here, its mix of habitats attracting large herds, followed by predators in vast numbers and variety.
Pristine floodplains, meandering channels and palm-fringed islands make up the Eden that is the Okavango Delta – a UNESCO World Heritage site where the water is so pure and clear, you can drink it.
Experience: Wildlife sightings at Wilderness Little Mombo are unparalleled. Encounter healthy populations of predators, sizeable elephant and buffalo herds and an abundance of ungulates. Close-up wildlife encounters in or near camp or at the hide are common, but nothing beats the thrill of out-of-camp game-viewing here – whether by vehicle or from a helicopter*.
The in-camp experience is just as fulfilling, with spa treatments, fitness facilities, a fascinating library and an inviting swimming pool shared with sister camp Wilderness Mombo. The hide is the ideal spot to while away the afternoon and let the wildlife come to you. Days end with tranquil evenings on the deck, and nights under the stars.
Like its bigger sister camp, the meals at Wilderness Little Mombo centre around fresh, local produce that’s delicious, and easy on the environment.

Purpose: Powered 100% by solar and with an on-site reverse osmosis filtration system that reduces single-use plastic for bottled water, Wilderness Little Mombo leaves a light footprint on the pristine natural surrounds. Just by staying with us, guests form part of our journey to help defend, preserve and expand the wilderness where we operate, working hand in hand with local communities.
Wildlife: The Mombo private wilderness area is known as ‘The Place of Plenty’ by the local Bayei people. This pristine tract of Okavango Delta attracts wildlife in exceptional numbers, from predators like lions and leopards, to massive herds of buffalo and elephant, and smaller, more unusual species. Catch a glimpse of a pangolin or honey badger, or the packs of wild dogs and cheetah coalitions that occasionally move through the area.
Over 400 species of birds are found in the Okavango Delta, including specials like Pel’s fishing owl and the endangered wattled crane.
Wilderness Little Mombo: Alongside sister camp Wilderness Mombo, Little Mombo was rebuilt in 2018. With just four suites, Wilderness Little Mombo offers an exclusive, intimate safari experience. Ideally positioned as a sole-use camp for groups of friends and families up to eight, it is connected to Mombo by elevated walkways. However, guests at Little Mombo enjoy their own private lounge, dining area, kitchen and boma. The design prioritises luxury while remaining sustainable, the hospitality is unmatched and the wildlife encounters are one-of-a-kind.
