This habitat is more familiar to those who dream of the Africa we see in nature documentaries: open grassland plains dotted with acacia trees and thickets. It is on these plains that the larger mammals congregate and move in large numbers.
This area is simply one of the best wildlife viewing destinations in Africa. The sheer numbers and diversity of animals found all year round is astounding! Elephant, impala, spotted hyaena, lion, leopard and cheetah are all found here and even small predators like serval and side-striped jackal are occasionally seen in this wildife paradise.
This abundance of wildlife and variety of species are accredited to the yearly flooding of the Okavango Delta. owes When the bulk of the water arrives between March and May each year, large mammals are able to move into the Chief's Island area, which contains rich resources to sustain them in their daily search of food. The wetlands are home to a variety of mammals and birds. By September and October the wetlands starts to recede leaving behind vast floodplains of short green grass, while most other large island are driest. This seasonal availability of food and the quality of the grass results in the abundance and diversity of Africa's incredible wildife in the Mombo area.
