Wilderness Safaris has begun the rebuild of its flagship camps situated in the world-renowned Mombo Concession in the Okavango Delta, Botswana.
The wok at both the Mombo and Little Mombo camps aimed to be finished at the end February 2018.
Mombo is renowned as the Place of Plenty, and is committed to operating with as light an eco-footprint as possible.
“We are thrilled to have begun the exciting process of rebuilding both Mombo and Little Mombo camps in order to continue delivering the world-class service and exceptional safari experience that is synonymous with Mombo,” said Wilderness Safaris chief operating officer, Grant Woodrow.
While the new camps will comprise the most appropriate and sustainable luxury required of such a leading destination, they will also remain rooted in an authentic bush-camp offering to ensure that the original Mombo experience is retained.
“Our emphasis in terms of luxury and service excellence has always been on sharing and honouring the amazing natural environment in which we operate and these new camps will continue to do just that – operating on 100 per cent solar power and remaining committed to having as light an environmental footprint as possible.
“Mombo is undoubtedly one of Africa’s foremost wildlife and ecotourism destinations – one that embraces a true low impact and high experiential value tourism model,” Woodrow added.
In order to accommodate guests still wishing to travel to Mombo during the rebuild, Wilderness Safaris has opened a temporary luxury tented camp overlooking the floodplain, called Mombo Trails Camp.
Built with an extremely light eco-footprint, this camp will be dismantled as soon as the new Mombo and Little Mombo open at the end of February 2018.
