A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Delta stretches over two million hectares of pristine floodplains, where meandering channels weave around thousands of palm-fringed islands, where the clear, lily-covered water is pure enough to drink. 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.
Rebuilt in 2018, repurposing much of the material, our flagship camp maintains the integrity of its pristine environment through the use of natural materials, minimal human footprint and 100% solar status. 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 – all of which immerses one deeper into the bush and the wonders of Mombo’s Private Traversing Area.
Wilderness Mombo is a beacon of conservation tourism. Its continued success over its decades of operation has helped bolster and support local communities, as well as the growth of sustainable safaris across all of Botswana.
