This is the first camp we stayed at on our first safari (we've been on 15 more since then and have stayed in more the 50 camps/lodges). Some people call it the best camp in Africa. I wouldn't necessarily call it that - but I would say it's the "gold standard" by which all other safari camps can be judged....

Thank you so much for your comment, we do believe that you on the money. All we want to achieve is that a Safaris and the whole experience and its people make the difference.

This place is like the Garden of Eden. Zebras, Elephants, giraffes, antelopes altogether on the plain. Then being able to see the white and black rhinos!

Mombo Camp is located on Chief's Island, Moremi Preserve. It is truly the Land of Plenty. It is hard to drive for more than a few minutes without coming across zebra, giraffe, Impala or other game. We saw leopards mating, lions galore, with Cubs mauling each other and the moms. The scenery is gorgeous with huge acacia trees and baobabs...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It is often said that as soon as you walk out onto the main deck at Mombo and note the plain dotted with a variety of species of game, you know you are somewhere special. Not for nothing is Mombo known as "the place of plenty." Situated at the northern tip of Chief's Island, the largest landmass in the Okavango, the camp's elegant design complements its magnificent surroundings, with the spacious, luxurious tents - each sporting a private sala - raised off the ground to maximise the views of the floodplain. The game viewing here is exceptional with abundant plains game and predators never far away, from leopard and spotted hyaena to large prides of lion.
