Mombo is the “Place of Plenty,” from the vast landscapes of the Moremi Game Reserve, to high concentrations of safari favourites roaming the plains of the private reserve, to the responsible luxury provided by Chief’s Island’s Mombo Camp.
Isolated deep in the Okavango Delta, in the 45,000-hectare Mombo Concession, Mombo Camp is surrounded by mopane woodland, belts of Kalahari sand and acacia trees, as well as shallow floodplains and riverine forest – ideal habitats for four-legged neighbours.
On game drives around the Delta, watch out for huge herds of buffalo and elephant, giraffe, Burchell’s zebra and blue wildebeest. Predators are usually stalking close behind, such as leopard, cheetah, spotted hyena, as well as the rare and critically endangered African wild dog.
The Mombo wildlife area is also known for its abundance of black and white rhino, the most elusive of Africa’s Big Five. The reintroduction of rhino to this region (the only rhino found in the Okavango Delta) is a widely-celebrated conservation success story, and you might just be lucky enough to spot them out on the plains with the Rhino Monitoring Team.
Back at camp, take a dip in the camp’s swimming pool and unwind in your luxury tented accommodation, complete with opulent bathtub and spacious lounge facilities. With all the comforts of a high-end hotel, you’ll have to remind yourself just how far you are out in the wild.
Muscles feeling a little stiff after a few days of game drives? Try “Workouts in the Wilderness” – yoga and workouts arranged at the camp’s gym or poolside, complete with bush views. Alternatively, swap the “African massage” of your safari jeep for an actual massage at Mombo’s in-house spa.
