Mboma Island Expeditions
Breath-taking Mboma Island Expeditions is a piece of pristine paradise located in one of three remote area's on the tip of the game rich Moremi Game Reserve. Based out of Mboma Island on the floodplains of the meeting point of the Delta’s fresh waters and the Moremi’s savannah terrain, means that Mboma is ideal for both land and water based safaris. An opportunity for guests to enjoy a charming African authenticity in a camp that promises to deliver a wild experience in the Okavango Delta.
This magical Island camp has 5 light Meru-style canvas tents equipped with twin beds and en-suite, open-air bathrooms. Everything about this camp is eco-friendly, from the sole use of solar-power, to bucket showers, and chemical toilets. Tents are fully furnished using the finest linen and kitted out in the creature comforts from home. Decor is in perfect harmony with the surrounds; neutral tones are interrupted by bold pops of colour that reflect the colourful spirit of Botswana. The Meru tents are joined by a network of lantern-lined pathways, and the main areas include a boma, safari dining tent and lounge, all quintessential elements of a classic safari.
Mboma boasts views of the endless floodplains fringed by real fan palms. Dotted across the plains you’ll notice scores of red lechwe and lumbering elephants. At night the powerful guttural roars from lions advertising their territory can often be heard echoing across the flat landscape. There are abundant cat families in the area, meaning that there is a high chance of spotting a few local prides while out on game drive. Elephants are purveyors of fine water, so there is plenty of scope to witness high concentrations of elephants in the wild. Because Moremi’s ecosystem is so diverse, the team at Mboma have ensured that all aspects of safaris are covered, from mokoro to boating and game drives. Stay at breath-taking Mboma and immerse yourself in the fascinating ecosystem of this World Heritage Site.
