Little Mombo Camp

Little Mombo Camp | Chief's Island, Okavango Delta

Little Mombo Camp

With just three beautiful tented suites, Little Mombo combines luxury and exclusivity with arguably the best game viewing in Botswana.

Little Mombo Camp is the sister camp to Mombo, with which it shares Mombo Island, a small area of land located just off Chief's Island in the Moremi Game Reserve, surrounded by the vast Okavango Delta floodplains. It is a fantastic location, for while most areas of Moremi can be very busy, the Mombo Camps fall within an area designated for "low intensity" game-viewing only and thus enjoy a great deal of privacy. Indeed, these are among the most exclusive camps in the Okavango, despite being located in the very heart of the Delta.

It would be easy to miss Little Mombo from a distance. This remote camp is small, with only three tented suites, and has been carefully positioned under a canopy of ebony and mangostana trees. From this superb position, it overlooks a region of the Delta floodplains that teems with game. The area around Chief's Island is renowned for having among the highest concentrations of wildlife in the Delta, much of it permanently present in the region. The variety of game is staggering. This is one of the few areas of the Okavango where rhino can be seen, and leopard and cheetah sightings are also common.

Little Mombo Camp is open throughout the year. Due to its fantastic location and intimate character, it is among the most sought after lodges in the Delta, and it really needs to be booked far in advance if you plan to visit during the dry season.

Accommodation

Little Mombo's three tented rooms are raised a couple of metres from the ground and connected to each other and the lounge/dining area by wooden walkways (which also extend to Mombo Camp), meaning wildlife can wander freely through the camp and beneath the rooms.

Little Mombo's rooms are exceptionally spacious, with separate bedroom and lounge, and a huge bathroom with both indoor and outdoor shower.

Dining

Little Mombo Camp has a dining room, lounge and bar area on raised decking under thatch where meals are served. There are also Kgotla (boma) for outdoor dining. Alternatively, private dinners can be served on the room decks or in a private lounge. Picnics are provided on game drives, allowing for full day excursions. Drinks are included with meals (excluding premium brands and champagne).
