Location:

Little Mombo Camp is situated on Mombo Island, adjoining the northern tip of Chief's Island within the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta, northern Botswana.

It is a smaller and more intimate camp than its sister, Mombo Camp, to which it is connected via a raised walkway.

Accommodation:

Little Mombo Camp is built under a shady canopy and has three luxurious, spacious rooms under canvas with en-suite bathrooms and outdoor showers for guests looking to get closer to nature. Much of Little Mombo Camp overlooks the surrounding floodplains which offer some of the best big game viewing in the Okavango Delta.

Little Mombo has 3 rooms. Each tented room is raised off the ground offering great views over the floodplains. The new rooms have a tented camp feel, but are luxuriously appointed.
The bathrooms are en suite, including an indoor shower with hot and cold running water. There is also an outdoor shower. The main living area is under thatch and canvas.

There are pools at both camps. We will have raised walkways to link bedrooms and the living area. Mombo Camp & Little Mombo have a "kgotla" or boma for outdoor dining under the stars.

Activities / Wildlife:

Activities include morning and afternoon game drives. Open 4x4s provide an exquisite vantage for viewing the high concentrations of plains game and all the predators - including the big cats. Lion sightings are frequent. Guests at Little Mombo Camp can also expect to see leopard and cheetah, wild dog, spotted hyena, large herds of buffalo, elephant, white rhino, southern giraffe, blue wildebeest and Burchell's zebra.

The sheer numbers and diversity of wildlife surrounding Little Mombo Camp all year round ensure that every guest has a breathtaking experience: from herds of buffalo to the diminutive steenbok (a pretty dwarf antelope), to elephant, white rhino, southern giraffe, impala, blue wildebeest and Burchell's zebra. Lion, leopard and cheetah are all found here; and even smaller predators like serval and side-striped jackal are occasionally seen. This abundance and variety of wildlife owes much to Little Mombo Camp's positioning on the ecotone between east and west Okavango Delta. To the east lies the ancient Kalahari sands and grassland vegetation, and to the west lies the more modern, water-borne sediments and vegetation of the Okavango fan. The annual cycle of flooding also allows large numbers of wildlife to utilize both habitats to the maximum.

Between March and May, when the waters come, large mammals are able to move into the Chief's Island area, which contains rich resources of grass and Acacia woodland. The wetlands are fringed by large hardwood trees, containing shade, cover, nesting areas, and food, for a wide variety of mammals and birds.

By September and October the waters have started to recede and leave behind vast floodplains of short, green grass when the islands are now at their driest. This is the secret to the amazing diversity and quantity of wildlife in the Mombo region.

Birdlife is prolific around Little Mombo Camp, with waterfowl like African Jacana, Pygmy-Geese, massive Goliath Heron and migrant waders in summer being particularly common.
