Place: A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Delta stretches over two million hectares (over 4.9 million acres) of floodplains, where meandering channels weave around thousands of palm-fringed islands, where the clear, lily-covered water is pure enough to drink. Located in the Delta’s renowned Moremi Game Reserve in the north-eastern corner of Chief’s Island – once a tribal leader’s hunting ground – Mombo today is a beacon of ecotourism, leaving a light footprint in paradise. With its mix of habitats attracting large herds, followed by numbers and varieties of predators, discover why Mombo, is truly the "Mother of all Camps".
Wildlife: The Mombo Wildlife Area is known as “the Place of Plenty,” highlighted by the massive concentrations of plains game and predators that live here. These include all the big cats, of which lion sightings are frequent. Leopard, spotted hyaena, large herds of buffalo, elephant, giraffe, blue wildebeest, Burchell's zebra and more abound, while cheetah and African wild dog sometimes move through the area. Or perhaps glimpse one of Africa’s rarer species: perhaps a pangolin or honey badger.
Accommodation: Rebuilt in 2018, repurposing much of the material, our flagship camp maintains the integrity of its pristine environment through the use of natural materials, minimal human footprint and 100% solar status. Elevated on wooden decks beneath towering mangosteen and fig trees, Mombo overlooks a spectacular floodplain teeming with wildlife. Eight elegant, expansive guest suites celebrate the history and traditions of the legendary original camp. Each suite offers an indoor lounge area, separate bedroom and bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers, elegant copper bathtub, and an outdoor private sala with a double day bed, sunken couch, private lunge pool, and wrap-around veranda – all of which immerses one deeper into the bush and the wonders of Mombo’s private traversing area.
Purpose: Mombo's isolation and sheer diversity of suitable vegetation makes the area ideal for dedicated conservation efforts to ensure the pristine habitats and dense wildlife are preserved for future generations.
