Black and white rhino have been reintroduced to the region with outstanding success (albeit most are further away from Mombo Camp), thanks to the Botswana Rhino Reintroduction Programme.
The sheer numbers and diversity of wildlife surrounding Mombo Camp all year round ensure that every guest has a breathtaking big game viewing experience: from herds of buffalo to the diminutive steenbok (a pretty dwarf antelope), to elephant, white rhino, southern giraffe, impala, blue wildebeest and Burchell’s zebra.
Lion and leopard are found here; and even smaller predators like serval and side-striped jackal are occasionally seen.

- Game drives via 4 x 10-seater open 4×4 Land Rovers each accommodating a maximum of six or seven guests, allowing each guest an outside seat (each vehicle is equipped with a tree book, a bird book, a mammal book, a pair of binoculars and insect repellent in a centre consol on each row of seats)

- Best game viewing in Botswana
- Night drives not possible at present
- Private vehicle on request (maximum five vehicles in the concession with three primarily being used at Mombo main camp, one at Little Mombo and one available for private vehicle booking).
The annual cycle of flooding also allows large numbers of wildlife to utilize both habitats to the maximum.
Between March and May,when the waters come, large mammals are able to move into the Chief’s Island area,which contains rich resources of grass and Acacia woodland.
The wetlands are fringed by large hardwood trees,containing shade,cover, nesting areas,and food, for a wide variety of mammals and birds.
By September and October the waters have started to recede and leave behind vast floodplains of short,green grass when the islands are now at their driest.
This is the secret to the amazing diversity and quantity of wildlife in the Mombo region.
Bird life is prolific around Mombo Camp, with waterfowl like African Jacana, Pygmy-Geese, massive Goliath Heron and migrant waders in summer being particularly common.
