International film crews have made Mombo Camp famous and no wonder, with the sheer abundance and variety of game, intense predator action and more. This Botswana safari lodge in Moremi Game Reserve is located on the northern tip of Chief's Island. It overlooks the Okavango floodplains where you can see plenty of wildlife all year round.
Game drives in open 4x4s set off in the early morning and late afternoon, when the temperatures are cooler and the animals are more active. Moremi is a Big Five reserve now that Rhino has been re-introduced. But that is not all; you could come across Cheetah, Wild Dog and Spotted Hyena, even the elusive Leopard is regularly seen.
This remote part of the Okavango region is drier, so you can see larger animals and more of them. Add to that the restricted visitor numbers and you can experience a truly exclusive Botswana safari in Moremi Game Reserve. Animals can be seen right in front of Mombo Camp and often wander past the tents, so you can game watch at close quarters without leaving your seat.
All the tented suites and the main veranda, lounge / dining area and sala (gazebo) are raised off the ground to take full advantage of the inspiring views. When the heat of the day takes over, the plunge pool is the place to cool off and refresh. In the evening you can enjoy an atmospheric boma dinner around a blazing camp fire, in the traditional open-air enclosure.
