Built under the shady trees of Chief’s Island and overlooking the floodplains, Mombo Camp provides luxury and comfort in the heart of the world-famous Okavango Delta.
Accommodations at the camp consist of nine tents rest on raised wooden decks with two twin beds that can be configured to a king. Each tent is decorated in neutral tones with polished parquet floors and includes an en suite bathroom with a flush toilet, double basins, and an indoor shower as well as a luxurious outdoor shower. For added privacy and comfort, each tent features a private, thatched veranda where it is not unusual to encounter an elephant passing by or a zebra nibbling on the grass outside the tent.
The camp is ideally situated in the Mombo Concession on Chief’s Island, a place of plenty inhabited by a massive concentration of plains game and their corresponding predators. There are plenty of big cats in the area including lots of lions, leopards, and cheetahs. In fact, “The Eye of the Leopard” was filmed here. Other wildlife in the concession include spotted hyena, large herds of buffalo, elephant, white rhino, giraffe, blue wildebeest, and Burchell’s zebra. Birdlife is prolific around Mombo with African jacana, pygmy-geese, goliath heron, and migrant waders in summer being particularly common.
