Okavango, Botswana



Mombo Camp is situated on Mombo Island, adjoining the northern tip of Chief’s Island, within the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana. The island is surrounded by open floodplains and the camp itself is largely built in and around the shade of some large Mangosteen, Ebony and Fig trees – overlooking a wonderful floodplain teeming with game.


The camp has nine luxuriously furnished tents with 2 x ¾ twin beds in each tent, raised off the ground. Custom-made linen enables twin beds to be converted into a kingsized bed on request. The guests’ rooms and connecting walkways that connect are up to two metres off the ground, allowing game to wander freely through the camp while at the same time allowing for guest safety. One often finds that animals take refuge under the rooms. The canvas rooms are spacious and well appointed and have en-suite facilities with an additional outdoor shower for those who enjoy a shower under the stars. This camp can accommodate 18 guests with tour leader and 1 twin guide tent.
