Little Mombo Camp, Wilderness Safaris

Little Mombo is just next door to Mombo main camp and together with its big sister they are quite simply the best camps in Botswana, and certainly some of the best in the world.  Although the price tag is pretty vast, it is worth every penny.  You are never out of sight from game and in most cases, on the open plains, you will see up to 10 different mammals.  The bird life is also overwhelming.  The camp itself is stunning with panoramic views of the floodplains, but to top things off the guiding and in-house service is unrivalled.  Little Mombo can be taken by a group of 6 people on an exclusive basis. 

Little Mombo - The Details

Located in the heart of the Okavango Delta’s Moremi Game Reserve on the northern tip of Chiefs Island, Little Mombo is approximately one hours flight from the International airport at Maun. The camp is accessed by its own private bush airstrip which is roughly 30 minutes game drive from camp.
Mombo – Botswana’s ‘Place of Plenty’ - looks over a floodplain that literally teems with game.  The main communal area at Little Mombo has a great view over the plain in front of camp.  Consisting primarily of a main thatch structure that is home to the lounge, bar and dining table the camp also has a small decking area for meals under the stars. There is also a fire place and swimming pool.
The rooms themselves are designed in exactly the same way as Mombo Camp with vast luxurious tented accommodations that look over the floodplains, huge four poster beds, en suite bathrooms, outside showers and private salas for siestas midday siestas. 

With just three tents tucked away on the other side of the same island, Little Mombo is a smaller, more intimate version of its sister camp, Mombo. Built under a shady canopy of jackalberry and sausage trees, overlooking a floodplain regularly visited by herds of herbivores (and their predators), the camp has its own facilities, including a dining area, boma, kitchen, lounge and pool, while being connected to Mombo Camp via a raised boardwalk.
According to Mombo guides you are almost guaranteed a lion sighting every drive and if not, then certainly every two drives. Chief's Island also has some of the highest concentration of Rhino in Botswana after the successful reintroduction programme – numbers are actually on the up in this specific part of the Delta. The guiding is top notch and Wilderness channel the best and most sought after guides to Mombo. The staff and in-house service is well up there with some of the best hospitality in Africa - they excel in the food and beverage department.
Mombo only offers game drives during the daytime.  Night drives are not permitted due to the camp's location inside the Moremi Game Reserve.  Water levels are too low for boating activities.

Little Mombo - Reviews

The sequence of the camps…from Royal Livingstone to Kwetsani to Little Mombo to Jack’s was perfect!  Note about Jack’s camp:  we were lucky enough to be able to do their surprise sleep out on the pans!  What an experience…I wasn’t sure about Jack’s camp and was worried it wouldn’t be right.  But we’d seen so much wildlife in Mombo, another camp would have been redundant.  Keeping the sleep out a surprise is a good thing…I’m glad we didn’t know.  Don’t tell people…the surprise is worth it.  And, of course, some can’t do it due to sandstorms, etc.  And you were right:  the kids loved the 4X4s and the meerkats.
The surprise birthday party was incredible:  message written w/beans on the bed when we returned from afternoon outing…champagne for us…handwritten birthday cards…animal prints from an artist
Guides were all knowledgeable, friendly, patient w/kids  (Ronald in Kwetsani…but he’s going off to join his brother’s mobile safari business; Mos in Little Mombo…GREAT!!!!  Excellent w/the kids; Chabba in Jack’s…wonderful wonderful.  Funny, knowledgeable.)
