about little mombo

Little Mombo is situated on Mombo Island, an extension of the north-western end of Chief's Island which effectively divides the Okavango Delta 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. This makes Little Mombo remarkably exclusive and remote.

Enjoy daily game activities to explore the surroundings and to view the high concentrations of plains game and predators including lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, spotted hyena, elephant, buffalo, rhino, giraffe and many more species. on early morning and late afternoon game drives on open 4x4s. A sala, large verandah and comfortable lounge area allows you to unwind and take in the beauty of this African wilderness.

The habitats on Chief's Island vary from open grasslands, secluded island sanctuaries and papyrus-fringed channels to low sandy islands and dry land on which animals and plants flourish. 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.

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

The luxurious rooms, of which there are 3, comprise of carefully designed canvas and wood units raised off the ground and connected with walkways that allows for breathtaking views over the floodplains from almost every part of the camp. The decor is warm, luxurious and comfortable with the use of heavy wooden furnitures and oriental rugs to blend in with the surroundings.
