News from Mombo!
Mombo Camp and
This exciting year-long project will mean some changes, including the
building of Mombo Trails as an alternative to the existing camps while under
construction. Harking back to our original safari roots, Mombo Trails will be a
luxury tented camp with no permanent structures, yet still offering the standard
Mombo comforts and great game viewing!
Seven elegantly furnished and spacious guest tents (14 beds) with en-suite
facilities will be situated on the ground right amongst the wildlife. There will
be a central living and dining area (no pool), plus traditional campfire, as
well as a pilot/guide room.
Important to note is that the circumstances of the rebuild have placed
limitations on our flexibility over this period so we cannot operate as we
normally would – particularly regarding the camp configuration and private
From 1 November 2015 to 30 June 2016:
• Little Mombo will become a 5 room/10 bed camp – utilising 2 rooms from
Mombo Main – plus 1 pilot/guide room.
• The rest of Mombo Main will close
for this period for construction – including the second pool/lounge area, gym,
curio shop and 4Cs centre.
• Mombo Trails will open with 7 rooms/14 beds plus
1 pilot/guide room.
• There will be a private vehicle at Mombo Trails ONLY
for this period – not at Little Mombo.
From 1 July 2016 to 15 December 2016:
• Mombo Main will re-open with 8 rooms/16 beds plus 1 pilot/guide room.
Little Mombo will close for construction.
• Mombo Trails will reduce in
number to 4 rooms/8 beds plus 1 pilot/guide room.
• There will be NO private
vehicle on the concession for this period. Any requests for sole use of vehicles
will be subject to the number of beds booked and charged for i.e. to guarantee
sole use, 3 rooms/6 beds.
Throughout this process we will still have 12 rooms (24 guest beds) on the
Mombo concession although the camp configuration has changed as specified above.
On 16 December 2016, the new Mombo (9 rooms) and Little Mombo (3 rooms) plus 1
guide room will re-open. We do not have any details on the specifics of the
“new” Mombo and Little Mombo as yet, however, we will be sure to share them with
you when we do!
During the period of construction, rates at Little Mombo will be discounted
by 20% and rates at Mombo Trails will be discounted at 40%.
When the new Mombo Main re-opens on 1 July 2016, it will be
at our normal seasonal rates, as will the new Little Mombo when it re-opens on
16 December 2016.
