Set on the banks of the great Zambezi River under acacia trees that often attract elephants, Old Mondoro looks out over a maze of hippo-filled channels and small islands in the Lower Zambezi National Park. The camp is simple in style but with all the comforts you'll need: the philosophy behind Old Mondoro is simply to take a step back from the ultra-luxurious lodges that have sprung up in recent times and instead provide you with an authentic safari experience. An emphasis is placed on guided walking safaris, and in this remote area where there are few other camps this is an ideal activity.
You can also set out in 4X4 vehicles each morning and afternoon for guided game drives, or view hippos, elephants and other wildlife along the Zambezi from motorboats or Canadian-style canoes. There's plenty of opportunities for tiger fishing too, and Old Mondoro sits in one of Southern Africa's top birding regions.
