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.
