a year~round exclusive wildlife destination (especially for predators),
Mombo has a record unequalled in Africa. This area provides one
of the highest quality wildlife viewing opportunities on earth.
Many of the Cheetah photos reproduced in National Geographic's
December 1999 issue and the photos of wild dog in the May 1999
issue were taken here. Mombo was rated as one of the top destinations
of the 'Ultimate Safari' in the March 1999 issue of Conde Nast
Traveler. Mombo also ranks as one of the best lodges in Southern
Africa according to the July 2000 issue of Harpers and Queen.
Elephant, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and all the major predators
are common in the region. A large pack of Wild Dogs frequents
the area around the camp and has been successful in raising many
litters in recent years. The excellent game at Mombo has made
this area Botswana's top wildlife documentary location. National
Geographic, the BBC and many others have filmed here. Birdlife
is prolific, with waterfowl and waders being particularly common.
