The Okavango Delta is a world-famous, water-drenched wonderland where Burchell’s zebra graze under the watchful eyes of leopards and lions as African jacana and pygmy geese fly overhead. Set within this immense wildlife paradise is Mombo Camp, a private concession within Moremi Game Reserve. Mombo Camp is home to two famous groups of predators: the star of the renowned film, Eye of the Leopard, Legadema and her daughter Pula, and the Moporota pride of lions. Together they offer thrilling game drives as guests seek them out. Black and white rhino have also been reintroduced into the area, making for incredible Big 5 possibilities.

At Mombo Camp, you may have that familiar ‘home from home’ feeling as the tents are size of some city apartments: the spacious en suite bathroom has a double shower with views over the plains and the private outdoor deck has both an alfresco shower and a shaded daybed area that begs to be used for an afternoon siesta or jetlag-soothing massage.

The rest of the camp is as luxurious with two plunge pools, a gym, excellent dining and a nearby photography hide to get those once-in-a-lifetime shots of a feeding fish eagle or a playful newborn warthog, baby bristles and all.

Mombo Camp’s extensive main area is raised to provide wandering space for the teeming wildlife below. Lily-filled waterways and floodplains filled to the brim with wildlife provide unforgettable views from the laid-back lounge, the well-stocked library and the social-hub of the bar.

Passing wildlife is easily spotted from the decks and the camp’s fire pit is a great place to share stories with fellow travellers. Cool down in one of two plunge pools, work out in the gym or uncoil with a massage on your private deck. Keen photographers, birders and animal spotters will want to head for the hide to await predator and other action. Veteran rhino monitor Poster Malongwa will enthral as he explains the fragile return of black and white rhino to the area and the ongoing efforts to conserve these endangered gentle giants from outside threats.

Children will love being part of the Bush Buddy programme, where they can flex their storytelling and poetry-writing skills, make jewellery, take part in animal tracking and learn how the San Bushman make dyes and paints for their legendary rock paintings.

Excellent food and unforgettable sundowners complete the foodie experience here. Both tasty and plentiful, the day starts with early morning breakfast, a large brunch, game drive snacks (choose your own nuts, dried fruit or sweets from old-fashioned Mason jars), afternoon tea and sundowner drinks making up the day's fare before a truly delectable dinner.

Mombo Camp has a 'kgotla' (or open-air boma) for traditional outdoor dining around a convivial fire and under the twinkling African stars where the Mombo Choir can be heard serenading guests with their dulcet tones and lilting African rhythms. If views of the floodplains are what you are after, meals can also be taken on the raised timber deck overlooking the magnificent Delta.

Private dining can be arranged for a romantic evening for two as can daytime picnics where you will be surrounded by nothing but the intricate waterways.

Standard Tent

Mombo Camp’s nine luxurious tented suites are raised almost two metres off the ground and are connected by charming wooden walkways. This not only allows animals to wander freely beneath the camp but also enhances the magnificent views of the Delta.

The luxurious and spacious canvas tents boast wooden floors and feature king-sized beds cocooned in mosquito netting, dedicated lounge areas and en suite bathrooms with double showers and vanities. An additional outdoor shower allows for back-to-basics close-ups with nature.

Each luxury tent extends onto a private verandah with spectacular views over the calm waters and flitting birdlife of the Okavango Delta.

Traveller Reviews

  • I suppose if you put everything in the amazing category it would cover all aspects including staff, accommodation and even the animals.

    Pete Hilton, January 2015
  • Mombo deserves to be the number one camp! It's worth every penny we spent.The camp itself is absolutely stunning, wonderful food and service and most of all, the game viewing and the guide was out of the world! Everything was top notch! The extra few hundred we spent at Mombo was the best funds we ever spent!

    Denise Ching, November 2013
  • Great camps and Mombo truly exceeded expectations! Have some amazing photos.

    Gary & Lauren Cohen, May 2013
  • What can I say but WOW. Everything I expected (and paid for!) and more. I cannot stress the "and more" enough. From staff, to food, to accommodation, to service, to game viewing, it met and exceeded every expectation. Actually it was sort of funny in that after each camp we kept saying, "it can't get better than this!" and in every case it did though. I am glad we did Mombo last because it could have raised our expectation too high for what followed. As it stands our expectations went up after each camp and we were literally never disappointed.

  • Mombo of course, was best kept to last - just as I remembered it to be, utter luxury. I would have loved another day but had to get home.

"I simply can't imagine that it would be possible - apart from seeing the annual migration - to see more species of animals in one place. Every turn you take something amazing rears its head."
