In the heart of the Okavango Delta, in the Moremi Game Reserve, are hundreds of palm-fringed islands which have survived untouched by man. Located on one of these islands is Mombo tented safari camp - the ideal location for a luxury safari in Africa. Because it is situated in the northern part of the reserve, the flood levels of the Okavango affect it from the end of April right through to September. This camp offers one of the finest luxury safaris available in Botswana.

Mombo Camp's accommodations have been described as canvas ‘pavilions' that melt into the background of the bush, becoming one with the surroundings. All of the tents are raised off the ground and connected by wooden walkways. Solid wood-paneled doors lead into beautifully designed rooms with private balconies. Each room has an en suite bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers, a huge four-poster bed and a seating area. The veranda is connected to a walkway that takes you out over the flood plains to your private sala, where you can enjoy a lazy afternoon listening to the sounds of the bush.

Dining at Mombo Camp is considered very important, and is always an occasion. The dining area has a vast eucalyptus table with director's chairs. The meals are served al fresco and the head chef is well-known for serving fresh seafood dishes in the middle of a landlocked country. The living room, with its comfortable leather sofas, overlooks the plains. The lounge leads into the bar that extends into the camp's library. The camp's pool is completely hidden from the main area, a perfect place to be revitalized after a safari activity.

Via Johannesburg's O R Tambo International Airport, guests are flown to Maun and then chartered to Mombo Camp in the Okavango Delta's Moremi Game Reserve to enjoy one of the most luxurious safari packages available. This African safari package is all about the game-viewing experience, whether you elect to admire the surrounding wilderness on foot, the woody bowl of a mokoro canoe, the secure deck of a motorboat or the perch of a safari vehicle. Spectacular Big Five and African wild dog sightings are one of the camp's primary drawing cards.

Yet you need not leave the cozy bounds of the camp to experience the delta's affecting charm. From the stilts of your tented suite to the timbered dining deck, nature is prevalent and inescapable, assaulting the senses with awesome views, textures, aromas, flavors and a spell-binding wildlife soundtrack. Accord a refreshing plunge in the pool with a dinner in the glow of lanterns, candlelight and the shimmer of the stars - an idyllic end to a luxury African safari.

Riaan's Review

Only the lodges located on Chief's Island can offer Big Five safaris in the Okavango Delta, as only here can rhinos be seen. Mombo is one of the finest safari camps in Botswana and in Africa. It has the advantage of being able to offer both water-based and land-based safari activities in one of the most pristine wildernesses in Africa. If you are not restricted by budget, I would highly recommend enjoying your safari in Botswana at Mombo Camp.
