Mombo Camp - Okavango Botswana

Mombo Camp, one of Africa’s truly extraordinary safari camps, has become one of the world's top tourist destinations for the simple reason that it is in the middle of perhaps the richest concentration of wildlife in the world

Place of Plenty - Mombo Island in Moremi park

The highlight is the concentration of plains game and all the predators - including the big cats.

Lion sightings are particularly good. Guests could also see Leopard, large herds of Buffalo, Cheetah, Wild Dog, Elephant, White and Black Rhino, Hyena, Giraffe, Wildebeest and Zebra, possibly from the comfort of your spacious Mombo safari tents.

In winter the floods of the Okavango River arrive, filling the plains with cool, clear water until the spring when the waters begin to recede, fish traps then develop thus attracting a multitude of water birds of every shape colour and size

The pure pleasure of watching wildlife as undisturbed as it must have been for thousands of years from right in front of the camp

Mombo Camp is a year round exclusive wildlife destination
