While the service was caring it was not consistent and never anticipated needs
The tented room is dilapidated and needs an overhaul
There were so many ants in the room even on our bed !
Because of bugs and Mosquitos we had to eat our dinner in the dark
Pretty hard to not see what you are eating to enjoy it
While the staff worked hard to create a nice Easter brunch in the wilderness the food overall was not impressive or varied enough
The wild life was abundant but not many cats at all or any water buffalo or wild dogs which was a big disappointment
No wifi and no way to reach the staff at all unless there is a health emergency
We were out of touch with the world - the computer in the staff office was also very slow
Not great to be totally out of touch with family - while some might like the isolation in this day and age I think guests should have a choice
Not practical and a little scary at night when you can't leave your room - if you need anything good luck because it is not possible to get it until daylight
They have an emergency horn that may only be blown when there is a true medical emergency
On the plus side you are in the wilderness and it is a peaceful setting and you can be up close with hippos and elephants and hear the noises of the wild
For $4000 a night we expected much more and feel they did not deliver
Our guide was competent and and kind but not as highly motivated or enthusiastic as previous guides we experienced.
We had no toilet paper in the van and that should be checked by the guide each morning before we depart as well as whether he has coffee machinery for the sundowners
We do salute their efforts in conservation but .......
We are totally perplexed as to why this has been rated the top camp in the world
It is not deserving of this special
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It is often said that as soon as you walk out onto the main deck at Mombo and note the plain dotted with a variety of species of game, you know you are somewhere special. Not for nothing is Mombo known as "the place of plenty." Situated at the northern tip of Chief's Island, the largest landmass in the Okavango, the camp's elegant design complements its magnificent surroundings, with the spacious, luxurious tents - each sporting a private sala - raised off the ground to maximise the views of the floodplain. The game viewing here is exceptional with abundant plains game and predators never far away, from leopard and spotted hyaena to large prides of lion.
