Welcome to Mombo Camp

  • Quite possibly Africa’s most famous camp 
  • Located on the exclusive Chief’s Island within the famous Moremi Game Reserve 
  • 9 magnificent tented suites overlooking the floodplains 
  • The most reliable game viewing in Botswana throughout the year
  • Pool, gym and private spa treatments are all available 

This camp is the flagship property of Wilderness Safaris, who are one of Botswana’s leading safari operators. Over the years it has earned its reputation as Africa’s most famous camp. The high wooden paths are a signature of this beautiful camp, it’s polished decking keeping guests safe from the profusion of wildlife constantly making its way through camp. The 9 tented suites are sumptuous in size and elegantly furnished throughout. Indoor and outdoor showers allow you to appreciate the best of both worlds and you can expect the finest in food and wines.

 Mombo Camp has access to some of Botswana’s richest big game viewing and is often called The Place of Plenty. The name actually stems from the Tswana word Simombo which means the fire which burns within. These underground peat fires unlock a huge amount of nutrients and allow life to flourish here. The north-western tip is also near the panhandle of the Okavango Delta and receives the first and most nutritious floods. Leopard sightings are commonplace and lions often chase their prey through camp. Another big drawcard here is the population of both white and black rhinoceros which are well protected on the island.  

The only two downsides to Mombo Camp are the exceptionally high cost and the one dimensional activities. Game drives are the only activity on offer here and they can only be enjoyed during the day because the camp is situated within a national park. The game viewing is so phenomenal though, that it makes up for a few shortcomings. 

Mombo is undergoing an extensive refurbishment during the course of 2016 and will be more spectacular than ever once complete. We recommend combining this property with other premier camps in Botswana that will offer a wider choice of activities.
