4Cs Projects at Mombo Camp

Mombo Island's isolation and variety of suitable vegetation makes the area ideal for delicate reintroduction projects.


Botswana Rhino Reintroduction Project

This is the conservation contribution in Botswana of which we are most proud. This ongoing project was initiated as a joint initiative between Wilderness Safaris and the Botswana government in 2001. Since then, breeding nuclei of both white and black rhino have been returned to the wilds of Botswana; our Rhino Monitor is based at Mombo Camp.

Eco-friendly systems

In keeping with Wilderness’ objective of reducing energy consumption and fuel use at all its camps, Mombo is 100% solar powered, with electricity and hot water provided via solar panels and inverters. Waste water (sewage and grey water) is treated in an Above Ground Sewage Plant, ensuring that the water is clean before being allowed to enter the natural environment.

Elephant Ecology Study

NGO Elephants Without Borders ran a study entitled “Ecology of elephants on Chief’s Island in the Okavango Delta, Botswana” which aimed to improve understanding of the spatial ecology and habitat use of elephants within the Okavango Delta.

Botswana Lion Genetics Study

Researcher Simon Dures is developing a comprehensive understanding of the past and present genetic structure of the lion population centred in Botswana’s Okavango Delta.

Okavango Large Herbivore Ecology Project

This project dealt with the population demographics, assembly patterns, preferred resources and habitats, movement patterns and spatial distribution patterns of medium-sized herbivores within the southern Okavango Delta.

Long Run Alliance

Mombo is a Long Run Alliance member, meaning the camp is dedicated to sustainability through the 4Cs (conservation, community, culture and commerce) and a leader in sustainable tourism, biodiversity conservation, community development and cultural stewardship.
