Old Mondoro Camp
About an hour east downstream by boat from sister camp Chiawa, Old Mondoro is located in the wonderfully open area of Faidherbia Forest. The camp is a far simpler affair than Chiawa yet the guiding levels, activity choice, service and excellent home-cooking remain on par.
The comfortable rooms are strung out along a hippo-friendly channel off the Zambezi, enjoying great views with their half-height walls and timber decks. Activities at Old Mondoro focus on game drives, walks, canoeing and boating, though the elephant and hippo activity around camp are enough to encourage a lodge-based safari!
Delicious meals are served fireside or in the open-sided thatched dining room, and star-gazing in this remote spot makes a perfect pastime.
Combine a couple of nights at Old Mondoro with a few nights at Chiawa Camp, via the Best of Both Worlds 5 night or 7 night specials for the very best, best value and most varied safari experience on offer on the the Lower Zambezi. Or really push the boat out and add a few nights stay at the recently rebuilt Puku Ridge in the South Luangwa National Park, now under Chiawa Safaris management.
