We had 3 nights at Little Mombo and would have loved to stay longer. The room was just beautiful with everything we could possibly want. Food was absolutely delicious and staff were incredibly attentive and friendly. Our guide was patient and knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure we not just saw the animals but were in the best position to take amazing photos.
Our only disappointment was that, when we booked, Little Mombo was advertised as having only 3 rooms but it has since been reconfigured and now has 5. Although we were very much enjoyed our stay, we were disappointed that it was not as intimate as we had expected.

Dear Jo K,

Thank you for this wonderful review. We are thrilled to see how much you enjoyed your stay at Little Mombo and look forward to sharing your kind words with your guide Sefo, the kitchen staff and the rest of the team in camp. In anticipation of a proposed rebuild, we had to alter the configuration of both Little Mombo and Mombo camps for a temporary period. As this appears to have not been shared with you prior to your arrival, please do accept our apologies. Despite the fact that Little Mombo was hosting a larger number of people at the time, we are pleased that you still had an outstanding visit! We would love to see some of your wonderful photos and have a handy tool on our website where you can do so; just click on the "Share your Wilderness Safari Album" link and you can upload these great photos.

Thank you again
Wilderness Safaris

We stayed at Little Mombo Camp a bit over a week in February 2016. The wildlife experience began right from the airstrip, as we saw more wildlife on the way to the lodge then on a regular drive in other camps. The welcome was very warm, the stuff exceptional. Will the camp manager was a nice guy and had a sense for what is needed with every guest. Our ranger Yompy became more funny everyday and had a huge knowledge of the birdlife of Botswana. As my wife and me are v ery much into birding it was a pleasure to do drives with him, learn about the nature and have a good time. The room was perfect and well worth the money. I couldn't imagine anything to dislike in this camp, but you must be into wildlife more than in other camps as this is set so deep into nature, that there is a Hyena in the camp (even using the walkways sometime), Elephants walking through Trail bridges, serval cats, baboons, squirrels and mice crossing our ways day and night. Perfect for us.

Thank you for your amazing review, we are overjoyed to read your wonderful memories of your stay with us and delighted to see the entire experience was able to meet and in most cases exceed your expectations.

Little Mombo was our first stop on our first visit to Africa. Accommodations are lovely. Staff is welcoming and so helpful. Game drives nod guides were extraordinary. No internet was a relief from the hectic work we live in. It was an extraordinary experience!

My husband and I stayed at Little Mombo, which has only 3 rooms and is attached to the larger camp Mombo by a boardwalk. This was our second Wilderness Safari camp and like Kings Pool and later Vumbura Plains another amazing location and camp. The staff was welcoming, warm and friendly and we liked the fact that it was small and intimate. The accommodations beautiful and very comfortable and the food absolutely delicious and beautifully prepared and served. We had an amazing guide, Cisco incredibly, smart and great to travel with. We saw so many great sights and animals and each day provided us with experiences we will never forget. We highly recommend this camp to all interested in a great safari experience. We would only want to stay at Wilderness safari properties because they have the perfect formula and perfect camps for those interested in a wonderful safari.

Room tip: Only three rooms and all are very beautiful and comfortable.

We have been to several high end safari camps in Africa...and this is the BEST overall based on our four night stay. The food, the service, the room were all top notch...but the game viewing and the guide we had (Yompy) were simply the best. We saw the "Big Five" on our first two game drives and saw the offspring of the Big Five almost every day. I wore out my finger taking pictures! Mombo has it all and the staff go overboard to make you comfortable. Without being invasive, they are ensuring your utmost satisfaction.

Room tip: Some rooms are quite a hike from the lodge so I would suggest: 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7...but being further away creates even more seclusion.

Dear Rick L,

Thank you for your marvelous review and high praise, we are overjoyed to hear you saw the entire Big 5 during your stay. This is in large part thanks to the amazing guides we have in camp who are highly skilled and adept to tracking the game throughout the area.

The concession has been very exciting over recent months; with continuous and amazing sightings. To name one of the most exciting: cheetah with cubs, and cheetah with a kill. It is very exciting that these beautiful cats are staying within our game drive areas as they have been quite scarce in the area for many years. In addition we are lucky in that Mombo has exclusive use of the area. This means that much of the wildlife has become extremely habituated to our presence which allows for superb viewing and “finger cramping” photographic opportunities.

Thank you again, we hope you will visit us again, soon.
The Team at Mombo
