The concept of Mombo Trails Camp is to enable visitors to enjoy quite possibly Africa's premier big game safari area while Mombo main and Little Mombo Camps are rebuilt over 2016/17. Set just 2km from the sites occupied by the two camps over the past 15 years, Mombo Trails will enjoy the same expansive floodplain and grassland views which are such a feature of Mombo.
Mombo Trails has been designed with a light-footprint, sympathetic to and blending with the environment, the camp will operate during the rebuild of Mombo and Little Mombo, after which it will be packed away leaving no trace.
A grove of huge Jackalberry Trees provide shade for the main area which is split into two tents: bar, dining and lounge areas. The focal point of the communal areas is the camp fire, splitting the two tents and the main gathering point for early morning coffees and evening drinks.
The guest tents themselves are set on low wooden decks, access at ground level to enhance the trails style experience. The interior of the tent covers in excess of 65 square meters, 220v power is provided for charging and fans ward off the heat of the day. At the front of each tent is a lounge from which guests can relax and enjoy the views over the floodplains.
This is a big game area and with this in mind two-way radios are provided in all tents with direct communication to the management and guiding team. Battery operated buggies are also available to transfer guests between their tents and the main areas as required.
The tented suites comprise large open-planned bedroom and bathroom areas with a lounge area at the front of the tent to take in the views. Each tent is equipped with 220v solar power for charging batteries, a fan keeps daytime heat at bay. Each tent has a minibar and coffee machine. Two way radios provide a 24 hour link to the management and guides.
There are no specific child care facilities at Mombo and the camp is not suitable for children under the age of 13 years.
