Little Mombo Camp (Chiefs
Island, Okavango Delta) Botswana
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.
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
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
A sala, large veranda and lounge area provide ample place
to relax and enjoy the view. Little Mombo Camp also has its
own dining room, kitchen and pool. Larger groups are welcome
to book additional rooms at sister Mombo Camp.
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 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
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
