Rest Your Head - MOMBO CAMP

Rest Your Head

Designed to take full advantage of its incredible location and offering unparalleled luxury in the thick of the African wilderness, Mombo Camp and Little Mombo (next door) together offer a dozen super deluxe tents on the northern tip of Chief’s Island, within the Okavango Delta’s 45,000-hectare Moremi Game Reserve.
Chief’s Island is so named because at 70 km long it is the largest isle within the delta; was once the sole hunting ground of the local chief and is quite possibly home to the richest concentration of wildlife in Botswana. Consequently, the plains surrounding the camp are teeming all year round, making Mombo one of the most lusted-after safari destinations in the world for more than three decades.
The camp’s design aesthetic is distinctly vintage throughout (think antique brass, Chesterfields, clubby chairs, embroidered cushions and a tonal colour palette) combined with top-end luxuries including crisp Belgian bedding and handmade Mervyn Gers ceramics.
A regularly changing menu offers everything from nourishing buddha bowls, pastas and curries to blow-out burgers with truffle fries, all of which is served wherever and whenever guests wish. Home-cooked breakfasts, brunch, late lunches, afternoon tea on your private terrace while watching zebras meander by or dining under the stars are all possible at Mombo, where nothing is too much trouble for the camp’s gracious staff, many of whom have been at the camp for years.
In between game drives, guests can partake of a private yoga class, relax in the library, swim in the infinity pool, have a massage in the small onsite spa or workout in the gym which boasts views of giraffe and other wildlife gently grazing on the plains. There’s no wi-fi or TV at Mombo, but who needs television when you’re surrounded by the best live wildlife show on the planet?
