Wilderness Mombo

Wilderness Mombo very clearly offers two things. Firstly exceptional standards of safari accommodation, food and service. Secondly, excellent big game viewing. If you are looking for these things, then the only drawback is the extremely high price of Mombo.

Wilderness Mombo has recently been rebuilt and the new camp is genuinely impressive, certainly one of the top properties in Botswana accommodation wise. Service is excellent yet the camp does to a large degree maintain a safari ethos, and has not become too much of a hotel (though the days of it being a bush camp are long gone). Game viewing wise you can’t really go wrong at Wilderness Mombo, though we don’t feel that Mombo automatically offers better game viewing than other top game regions in Botswana.
