Little Mombo Camp is an extension of highly-regarded Mombo Camp, sharing the same island as its bigger sister, within the renowned Moremi Game Reserve in the heart of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Although close together, they are two distinct camps, both offering the same unparalleled game viewing, which is among the best in the world, making this a prime setting for BBC and National Geographic wildlife documentaries.
All of Little Mombo’s extremely spacious tents are raised off the ground on wooden decks. Each tent has a lounge and bedroom area, expansive bathroom and outdoor shower. The camp has its own dining room, kitchen and lounge, and plunge pool overlooking the scenic floodplains.
With only three bedrooms, this camp is ideal for families and small groups. Little Mombo also shares the same state-of-the-art design standards as Mombo Camp, ensuring that they remain two of the most luxurious safari lodges in the Delta. You would need to book early as Little Mombo is much sought after by groups and families.
Little Mombo and Mombo Camp are in an extremely picturesque area of the Delta’s shallow floodplains, with excellent all-year round game viewing and regular sightings of all the major predators. You may see buffalo, elephant, hyena, impala, lion, leopard, tsessebe, warthog, and zebra. In addition, there is a resident population of cheetah in the area, and a large pack of wild dogs regularly hunts locally.
While black and white rhinoceros used to live in this region, by the 1980s they had vanished due to poaching. The Botswana Department of Wildlife and National Parks, assisted by other naturalists, has embarked on an effort to reintroduce rhino to the Moremi Game Reserve. In 2001, five white rhino were set loose in Moremi, and they have settled in well on Chief's Island. You may get to see one of the few free-ranging white rhino of Botswana while staying at Little Mombo.
The birdlife around the camp is abundant including vulture, jacanas, cranes, bustards and egrets and, in the dry season, pelican, stork and herons.
Expert guides lead walking tours and private game drives. Night drives are expected to begin shortly, with impending changes in game reserve rules.
Children are welcome from the age of eight. For children between 8-12 years, game drives must be private and there may be an extra charge for this. For advice on family-friendly safari options, speak with our consultants.
