July 2014 – Wilderness Safaris is proud to announce that Mombo Camp (including Little Mombo) in the Okavango Delta, Botswana, has been ranked the 6th Top Lodge and Resort in Africa and the Middle East in the US Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards. The camps were also recognised in the Top 100 Hotels in the World category.

“As the only two camps in Botswana to make the Top 10 in the Africa and Middle East category, we are thrilled that Mombo and Little Mombo have received this esteemed recognition. Our emphasis in terms of luxury and service excellence is on sharing and appreciating the amazing natural environment in which we operate and we are extremely proud to have been able to do this to the high standards of the readers of Travel + Leisure”, says Grant Woodrow, MD Wilderness Safaris Botswana.  

As well as a light ecological footprint, both Mombo and Little Mombo Camps are deeply committed to Wilderness Safaris 4Cs ethic (Commerce, Conservation, Community and Culture). The camps are also world-renowned for offering extraordinary wildlife encounters in the heart of the Okavango Delta, together with warm local hospitality and unparalleled levels of comfort.

“Botswana is one of Africa’s foremost wildlife and ecotourism destinations – one that embraces a true low impact and high experiential value tourism model. We are proud to operate in Botswana’s pristine wilderness areas and look forward to promoting its rich wildlife diversity by welcoming many more guests to Mombo and Little Mombo in the coming year”, Woodrow added.  

In addition to the recognition given to Mombo, Wilderness Safaris was named the 4th Top Safari Operator in the world in the World’s Best Awards.
