A Wilderness Safaris Camp Little Mombo is a sumptuously-appointed camp perfect for small groups. The Mombo Concession boasts enormous concentrations of plains game and predators and is arguably considered one of the best areas for game-viewing in Africa.
Located just of the the northern tip of Cheif's Island - the largest landmass in the Okavango Delta - Little Mombo's mix of habitats attracts large herds followed by numbers and varieties of predators
Camp and Wildlife
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. Each of luxuriously appointed tents has its own plunge pool.
The Mombo Concession has huge concentrations of plains game and predators. These include all the big cats, of which lion sightings are frequent. Leopard, spotted hyaena, large herds of buffalo, elephant, giraffe, blue wildebeest, Burchell's zebra and more abound, while cheetah and wild dog sometimes move through the area. It is here that black and white rhino were first reintroduced into the Delta, to be seen occasionally by a lucky few.
Activities include morning and afternoon game drives, walking safaris, pampering massages in your room or on a private deck, work out in the bush gym, Rhino conservation presentations, and experience a delicious, freshly-made brunch enjoyed out in the bush after an action-packed game drive.
Mombo Concession’s isolation and sheer diversity of suitable vegetation makes the area ideal for delicate reintroduction projects and for the greater purpose of wildlife conservation.
Botswana Rhino Reintroduction Project – this ongoing project was initiated as a joint initiative between Wilderness Safaris and the Botswana government in 2001. Since then, breeding nuclei of both white and black rhino have been returned to the wilds of Botswana; our Rhino Monitor is based at camp. Botswana Lion Genetics Study - researcher Simon Dures is developing a comprehensive understanding of the past and present genetic structure of the lion population centred in Botswana’s Okavango Delta.
Mombo hosts Children in the Wilderness - a life skills educational and environmental programme for children who live in the villages around the conservation areas.
