  • About the new pop-up: Mombo Trails Camp

    With the renovation closure of Mombo Main Camp, the concession will be operating a classic pop-up fly camp at an incredibly reduced rate to enjoy this beautiful game-rich concession. Mombo Trails will be set up from Nov 1 2015 and while originlly intended to run for a limited time till June 30, 2016, the great demand for this pop-up offering has extended its availability till December 2016. Drawing back to minimal safari roots with great wildlife offering, 7 elegantly-furnished tents with spacious living plans will be erected on the ground with complete safety to enjoy the plains. Lounge and dining areas will form a ‘mess tent’ with a small library and a campfire settings. Give the temporary siting of this ‘mobile’ type camp, there will be no pool, of course. There will be a private vehicle available at Mombo Trails for guests desiring a completely private safari.

    About the siting of this new trails camp at Mombo, in the words of a guide:
    In the seventies, when I first started guiding mokoro safaris in the Okavango Delta, the Yei paddlers spoke of a legendary area they called Borea … Over the years I listened avidly as they recounted the stories of the area we now know as Mombo. In their eyes, it had an almost mythical quality: huge herds of buffalo, zebra, wildebeest and all the predators. … Nothing I had ever done prepared me for how overwhelmed I was by my return to Mombo. Every guide needs a spiritual home, and Mombo and the heart of the Okavango will always be mine.”

    Seasons at Mombo Concession

    Peak season


    Winter / Dry Season June - October
    The Peak season at Mombo Camp occurs during the dry winter months which are the most productive for game viewing in the region. This season corresponds to the Northern hemisphere’s Summer - making it a very popular season, with availability at the intimate 12-room Mombo & Little Mombo becoming increasingly dear. Guests are advised to plan a year in advance.
    Seasons at Mombo Camp

    Intermediate Season


    Spring / Summer November to December
    The best value season, favored by photographers and safari veterans, avoiding the Peak season’s demand for better values and a quieter time on the plains. Game viewing is fantastic and occassional light rain showers of Spring offer more greenery in the bush with a moderately mild climate to enjoy it all. Take advantage of our early Green Season Specials during this time. *See packages below for details.

    Holiday Season


    Wet / Rainy time Dec 20 to Jan 10
    *Note - January 11 till March is very off-season and rainy.
    Summer in Africa comes as the Northern Hemisphere folds into the winter. On the dark continent, Botswana is heating up with swelling floodplains and thunderstorms dispersing the game further. Mombo is unique for the fact that the island locale offers year round resident game where often at this time one would be hard-pressed for wildlife in Botswana. A hot festive season awaits!
