The Mombo area is arguably the best game viewing area with the greatest concentration of big cats in Botswana. This is due to its unique position at the top of Chiefs Island; the point at which the nutrient rich floodwaters arrive from their 1000km journey supporting an astonishing abundance of game and birdlife.
The highlight is the concentration of plains game and all the predators; lion and leopard sightings are particularly good and guests can also see large herds of buffalo, cheetah, wild dog, elephant, hyena, giraffe, wildebeest and zebra. Black and white rhino have been reintroduced to this area of the Okavango with outstanding success thanks to the Botswana Rhino Reintroduction Programme. This is Big Game Safari at its very best! Also enjoy the elevated views from the camps two hides overlooking the floodplains and channels when the water levels are up.
The four huge luxurious tented guest rooms and connecting walkways are up to two metres off the ground, allowing game to wander freely through the camp – but at the same time allowing for guest safety. The rooms are very comfortably furnished, spacious and well appointed and have en-suite facilities. Each tent has an indoor lounge area and outdoor Sala with private plunge pool, there is also an outdoor shower for those who enjoy a shower under the stars. The dining room, bar and living area overlook the open plain in front of the camp. Other facilities such as the safari boutique, spa, gym, and lap pool are shared with Wilderness Mombo main camp. Little Mombo is probably the most intimate camp in Botswana.
