MOMBO AND LITTLE MOMBO OKAVANGO DELTA
The flagship camps of Wilderness Safaris, situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta, Mombo and Little Mombo have received a magnificent rebuild and welcomed visitors in January 2018.
Rooted in an authentic bush-camp offering whilst ensuring that the original Mombo experience is retained, sustainability and luxury was not compromised whilst maintaining the eco-footprint that is the ethos of Wilderness Safaris.
The privilege of witnessing the build of three generations of Mombo Camp is not lost on Wilderness Safaris, making it one of Africa’s most pristine wildlife locations. “We are extremely proud of the collective efforts and vision of our various teams who have worked tirelessly to make this happen”, said Kim Nixon, Wilderness Safaris Botswana MD. “The camps have been built in such a way as to maintain the Mombo traditions and history stretching back nearly 30 years, yet remodelled to the highest and most innovative standards”.
Known as the Rolls Royce of the Okavango Delta because of its high standards, the rebuild of Mombo takes the camp into the next 20 years, spearheaded by interior designer Caline Williams Wynn from Artichoke. “Space was key factor in creating the new design – each tented suite has its own spacious entrance, sitting room with bar unit, separate bedroom and bathroom with dressing area, indoor and outdoor showers, double vanity, bath tub and separate toilet.”
With the added expertise of architect Nick Plewman from Nick Plewman Architects, the reimagined look couldn’t have turned out more perfect. “We provide design and project implementation that is uncompromisingly innovative and ecologically sustainable in any environment from inner city to the remotest wilderness”.
