Stay at the Mombo
Experience the wonders of the Okavango Delta, from a camp that adopts the true spirit of the wild. Regal in aesthetic as well as setting, this a unique side to southern Africa. Mombo is self-sufficient and lathered in history. Its remote pleasures simply redefine safari life.Wake to the natural beauty of Botswana, where your morning coffee is serenaded by the symphony of calls at dawn. The mood of the plains changes as the day rolls on. Ferocious one moment, idyllically calm the next, you notice the distinctness each new creature brings. Lunch picnics place you directly in the action. Private dinners on your terrace grant a chance to reflect. As the sun sets, a procession of zebras slowly meanders past. You clink to their grace, their symmetry, the way the evening colours melt into their stripes.
Only a 15-minute plane ride from Maun, Mombo calls the Moremi Game Reserve home. Positioned on the northern tip of Chief’s Island, a plethora of wildlife reside nearby. Year-round activity makes this one of the most sought after safari destinations on the planet.
The camp comprises nine solar-powered tents, with gorgeous gold-hued interiors that combine modish and vintage decor. Spacious outdoor terraces and private plunge pools also feature. Bridged together by a wooden boardwalk is sister property Little Mombo, a more intimate counterpart with just three tents.
Who is it for
Children aged 13 and older are welcome, though those younger than 16 must stay with an adult. Couples seeking a romantic safari experience will hardly be disappointed with the level of privacy and comfort supplied here.
