Little Mombo Camp

Little Mombo Camp is situated on Mombo Island, adjoining the northern tip of Chief's Island within the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta, northern Botswana. It is a smaller and more intimate camp than its sister, Mombo Camp, to which it is connected via a raised walkway.

The Review

The whole of Mombo and Chief's Island fall within the Moremi Game Reserve. This zone is also marked for low intensity safari usage, making both Mombo and Little Mombo Camp incredibly exclusive and remote.

Much of Little Mombo Camp overlooks the surrounding floodplains which offer some of the best big game viewing in the Okavango Delta. A sala, large veranda and lounge area provide ample place to relax and enjoy the view.

Wildlife
Renowned as one of the best game areas in Africa, the Little Mombo Camp is a predator haven with frequent excellent sightings of Lion and Leopard. Wild Dog can be seen and inter-predator interaction is a feature. Plains game is prolific – Zebra, Wildebeest, Buffalo, Giraffe and all the Delta Antelopes are present in numbers. Year round birding is superb.

This abundance and variety of wildlife owes much to Little Mombo Camp's positioning on the ecotone between east and west Okavango Delta. Between March and May, when the waters come, large mammals are able to move into the Chief's Island area, which contains rich resources of grass and Acacia woodland.

By September and October the waters have started to recede and leave behind vast floodplains of short, green grass when the islands are now at their driest. This is the secret to the amazing diversity and quantity of wildlife in the Mombo region.

Why Stay
Little Mombo is an extension of and shares the same island as the larger Mombo Camp, matching its high standards. It offers the same abundant big game viewing – some of the best in Botswana – and overlooks a floodplain that is a beautiful setting for a variety of wildlife. The camp, built under a shady canopy, has luxurious and spacious guest rooms under canvas, each with en-suite facilities, outdoor shower and individual sala.

Little Mombo has only three rooms, but larger groups can also book out some of the rooms in the main camp. Little Mombo also has its own dining room, kitchen, lounge and plunge pool. Activities include morning and afternoon game drives in open 4x4 vehicles to view the high concentrations of plains game and their predators, which include all the big cats.

Experience

Guests at Little Mombo Camp can also expect to see leopard and cheetah, wild dog, spotted hyena, large herds of buffalo, elephant, white rhino, southern giraffe, blue wildebeest and Burchell's zebra.
