My husband and I are on a long awaited safari in Africa. We started planning this over a year ago and the centerpiece of the trip was to be Little Mombo. Because of an error by our travel agent we didnt find out that both Little Mombo and Big Mombo were closed for renovations and that we were going someplace...

Our visit to Mombo Trails was absolutely incredible. Rustic elegance! The entire staff was wonderful and our favorite was our guide Tebla. This is the way to visit the Delta! Lions, Hippos, Giraffes, Zebra,Hyennas, warthogs, all kind of surprises, and the most beautiful kind people. 6 stars!

We've just returned from a safari in the Okavango Delta, where we stayed at three of the Wilderness Safari Camps. All were fantastic (as usual - we have been to the Delta many times) and I wanted to review the new 'temporary' Mombo Trails Camp. The camp is accessed via light aircraft or helicopter transfer from Maun in Botswana -...

This is the first camp we stayed at on our first safari (we've been on 15 more since then and have stayed in more the 50 camps/lodges). Some people call it the best camp in Africa. I wouldn't necessarily call it that - but I would say it's the "gold standard" by which all other safari camps can be judged....

This place is like the Garden of Eden. Zebras, Elephants, giraffes, antelopes altogether on the plain. Then being able to see the white and black rhinos!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A nostalgic look back at our roots as safari pioneers in Botswana, Mombo Trails Camp is a light-footprint tented camp that has been specially erected to provide accommodation during the rebuild of Mombo and Little Mombo camps. As such, there are no permanent structures, but all the luxury and comforts of a Mombo experience, along with Mombo’s world-famous spectacular game viewing on offer. Eight elegantly furnished and spacious guest tents with en-suite facilities are situated on slightly raised decks to minimise impact on the site, all under large, shady trees, and often within sight of a variety of the area’s wildlife. Set under towering jackalberry trees, the dining, bar and lounge area offers beautiful views over the floodplain. Delicious meals are enjoyed here or under the stars, while veteran Mombo guests, guides and staff gather around the campfire to relive the history of one of our longest-running camps. ... more   less
