Lodge style Ready for the perfect Moremi safari?
Located in the Mombo Concession on the northern tip of Chief’s Island, in the central Okavango Delta, is the celebrated Mombo Camp. Built under large shady trees on the edge of a scenic floodplain, Mombo offers an unforgettable safari; from the minute the staff starts their swinging welcome tunes. Mombo Camp is smack in the middle of the rich Moremi Game Reserve: amazing wildlife viewings become reality when you simply grab your binoculars while sitting on your own verandah. And after a safari activity, the barman, who has a serious allergy for empty glasses, makes sure yours stays full, while you kickback and gaze at the ever-changing sky of Africa’s Okavango Delta. While the chef prepare a gourmet dinner in the kitchen, safari stories are shared with other guests, or you can browse through your wildlife guidebook to look up what colourful birds you spotted today. And what will tomorrow bring? Mombo means ‘place of plenty’ in the Botswana language, and once you venture out for a safari activity, you will understand why; this refers to the massive concentrations of plains game and predators that can be seen, including all the big cats - of which lion sightings are frequent - leopard, cheetah, spotted hyena. Also expect to see large herds of buffalo, elephant, white rhino, giraffe, blue wildebeest, Burchell's zebra and many, many more.
Nine luxurious tents accommodate eighteen guests. Raised two meters above the ground the tents are spacious, twins or double, have en-suite facilities that include indoor and outdoor showers and a separate flush toilet, bathroom amenities, mosquito net, and fan. The tents are spacious and well designed: rustic, tranquil and contemporary. Glass doors open onto a verandah and comfy sala, where game viewing starts in the morning in all privacy with a fresh coffee or tea. Listen to the birds that are waking up, watch the dew evaporate from the floodplains or hippos taking a morning bath. Wooded walkways connect you to the main living areas. The dining room, lounge and bar are on a raised deck under thatch – with again stunning viewings. There is a separate reading room with plenty of cosy nooks, boma for dining under the stars, and private lounge for intimate dinners, small groups or honeymooners. Two plunge pools offer welcome refreshment, or break a sweat in the gym area during a siesta. Feeling more like relaxing? There is an extensive menu of massage treatments available, for some African pampering.

Tripadvisor comments Mombo Camp
You are brought into a completely different world than your own as you enter Mombo Camp. The staff greet you with enthusiasm and usher you into their paradise. The camp's accommodations are breathtaking as you step into the "tents" for the first time and look out over the delta. One of my favorite places to go in the whole world.Jess B from Salt Lake City, Utah
