July 2016 – Wilderness Safaris’ flagship Mombo and Little Mombo camps in Botswana’s Okavango Delta have been included in the prestigious Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards for 2016. Voted for by the readers of the magazine and Wilderness Safaris guests, the camps were rated within the Top 5 Safari Lodges in Africa, as well as 29th in the Top 100 Hotels in the World category.

Mombo and Little Mombo received a reader-defined score of 96.50, based on the readers’ and guests’ ratings of the camps’ rooms and facilities, location, service, food and drink, and overall value.

“We are extremely proud of our staff who continue to go the extra mile to ensure that our guests receive the world-class service and exceptional safari experience that is synonymous with Mombo. Our emphasis in terms of luxury and service excellence is on sharing and celebrating the amazing natural environment in which we operate and we are humbled to have been able to do this to the high standards of Travel + Leisure’s readers”, says Operations Manager, Deon de Villiers.

“As the only camp from Botswana in this year’s listing, we are also extremely proud to represent the country, which is by far one of Africa’s foremost wildlife and ecotourism destinations – one that embraces a true low impact and high experiential value tourism model. We are delighted to operate in this pristine wilderness area and look forward to promoting its rich wildlife diversity by welcoming many more guests to Mombo and Little Mombo in the future”, de Villiers added.
