A luxury safari camp set amongst the palm-dotted floodplains of the Okavango
At Mombo, you can stay in luxury while exploring over 45.000 ha of secluded wilderness celebrated for year-round game-viewing. Whether on game drives or visits to the well-placed hides, guests stand a chance to spot the endangered wattled crane or the rare Pel’s fishing owl, watch large buffalo and elephant herds, and seek out predator and prey activity. After a day out, drop in at the camp’s spa. At night, experience local song and dance in the boma area and marvel at a sky full of stars. When it’s time to dine, Mombo offers mindful meals with even the iconic baobab featured in the ingredient list.
Best time to go to Botswana
Botswana's climate ranges from arid to semi-arid and is marked by hot and rainy summers, usually between November and March. This ‘green’ season is the best time to spot migrating birds, predators, and baby animals. However, many lodges in the Okavango Delta close during these months, so do check before you book. The dry season, between April and October, is the prime time to spot animals as they frequent water sources. This is also when the Delta floods, making it a great time for water-based activities. These months are a fantastic time to visit the salt pans, which will be dry from about June to September.
