Old Mondoro Camp

Old Mondoro is an exclusive bush camp overlooking the Zambezi River in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park.

Old Mondoro is one of our favourite camps in Africa. The location is incredible, with beautiful woodland behind camp, lovely views out over the Zambezi River to the front and animals constantly in and around camp. The camp is small and exclusive, and has a friendly, communal feel more in keeping with traditional safari camps where meals are taken together and experiences are shared. The accommodation is very comfortable, but not luxurious, and maintains a slightly adventurous bush feel with open fronts (with blinds that can be rolled down at night). There are often elephants in camp feeding around the chalets! The hospitality side of things is very good, and the camp has attentive management, friendly staff and great guides. Old Mondoro is a camp that offers a really spectacular wildlife experience combined with a relaxed bush atmosphere and a warm social environment. All in all, Old Mondoro is one of Africa’s ‘gems’ and you will need to book early to get in!
