Little Mombo Camp in Botswana
Little Mombo is situated on Mombo Island, adjoining the northern tip of Chief's Island within the Moremi Game Reserve in northern Botswana.
A raised walkway links it to Mombo Camp, but distance and size combine to create an intimate luxurious camp that looks out over floodplains and together with Mombo Camp, provides some of the best game viewing in Botswana.
The camp, built under a shady canopy, has three luxurious and spacious rooms under canvas, each with en-suite facilities and an outdoor shower for those who wish to shower closer to Nature. A sala, large veranda and lounge area all provide ample space to relax and enjoy the view. Little Mombo has its own dining room, kitchen, lounge and pool overlooking the open plain in front of camp. Larger groups can also book out some of the rooms in the main camp.
Activities include morning and afternoon game drives in open 4x4 vehicles to view the high concentrations of plains game and all the predators - including the big cats - with lion sightings being particularly good. Guests can also see leopard, large herds of buffalo, cheetah, wild dog, elephant, white rhino, spotted hyena, southern giraffe, blue wildebeest and Burchell's zebra.
Unlike the water-inundated areas of the Okavango Delta, the habitats here vary from open grasslands, secluded island sanctuaries and papyrus-fringed channels to low sandy islands and dry land on which animals and plants flourish. Ancient floodplains, long since dried up, form permanent savannah divided by swathes of dense mopane and acacia woodland. Raised, tree-covered islands of a variety of shapes and sizes are common, ranging from a single termite mound to large landmasses. Trees such as real fan palms, sycomore figs, jackal-berry and mangosteen characterise these island communities separated by open grassland and fragrant wild sage.
This habitat is more familiar to those who dream of the Africa of nature documentaries: open grassland plains dotted with acacia trees and thickets. It is on these plains that the larger mammals move in their numbers.
Little Mombo is situated on Mombo Island, an extension of the north-western end of Chief's Island which effectively divides the Okavango into eastern and western sections. The whole of Chief's Island and Mombo fall within the Moremi Game Reserve, and, in particular a zone set aside for "low intensity" safari use. Thus Mombo and Little Mombo are remarkably exclusive and remote.
