Wilderness Mombo, Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana

Located in the Delta’s renowned Moremi Game Reserve in the north-eastern corner of Chief’s Island – once a tribal leader’s hunting ground – Wilderness Mombo today is a beacon of ecotourism, leaving a light footprint in paradise. With its mix of habitats attracting large herds, followed by numbers and varieties of predators, discover why Mombo, is truly the "Mother of all Camps".

The Mombo Wildlife Area has been known for generations as the “Place of Plenty” by the Bayei people. Highlighted by the massive concentrations of plains game and predators that live here. These include all the big cats, of which sightings of lions are frequent. Leopards, spotted hyaenas, large herds of buffalos, elephants, giraffes, blue wildebeest, Burchell's zebras and more abound; while cheetahs, and African wild dogs sometimes move through the area. Or perhaps glimpse one of Africa’s rarer species: a pangolin or honey badger.

Elevated on wooden decks beneath towering mangosteen and fig trees, Wilderness Mombo overlooks a spectacular floodplain teeming with wildlife. Eight elegant, expansive guest suites celebrate the history and traditions of the legendary original camp. Each suite offers an indoor lounge area, separate bedroom and bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers, elegant copper bathtub, and an outdoor private sala with a double day bed, sunken couch, private lunge pool, and wrap-around veranda.

Seeing the high concentrations of plains game and predators – including the big cats – is the order of the day at Wilderness Mombo. Their guides are the vital link between you and the intricacies of the natural world. They love sharing their knowledge, and do so with passion and humour, making your whole journey seamless and interpretive from start to finish.

Please note that as the camp is located within the Moremi Game Reserve, night drives are not possible at Wilderness Mombo.
