September 2015 – Wilderness Safaris is delighted to announce that Mombo and Little Mombo Camps, in Botswana’s Moremi Game Reserve, have been recognised as 2015 Andrew Harper’s Readers’ Choice award winners in the Top 20 Safari Lodges and Camps category, as well as the Top 20 International Hideaways category.

The results are based on the annual independent Reader Survey conducted by renowned luxury travel company and publishers of ‘The Hideaway Report’, Andrew Harper. Each year, Andrew Harper’s discerning readers vote for the best hotels, resorts, safari lodges and cruise ships around the world. This year's Readers’ Choice Awards boast 122 hotels in 51 destinations.

“We are extremely proud to be voted amongst the world’s best by the readers of Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report and especially proud of our staff at Mombo who continually go above and beyond to ensure that our guests experience a life-changing journey in this remarkable area of the Okavango Delta”, said Grant Woodrow, Wilderness Safaris Botswana MD. “We are also excited to be planning a complete rebuild of both Mombo and Little Mombo in the coming year to ensure that they continue offering the ultimate Delta experience, one that remains committed to our 4Cs ethic of Conservation, Community, Commerce and Culture”.

Mombo and Little Mombo Camps offer understated luxury and some of the best big game viewing in Africa. Mombo is the larger of the two camps, and is regarded as the flagship camp in Wilderness Safaris’ Botswana portfolio. Little Mombo is a smaller and more intimate camp that is located on the same island.

The camps are situated in the private Mombo Concession at the northern tip of Chief’s Island in Moremi Game Reserve. They overlook a floodplain where large concentrations of wildlife can often be seen, such as giraffe, zebra, red lechwe, lion and spotted hyaena, to name a few. Morning and afternoon game drives are led by highly skilled Wilderness Safaris guides and offer some of the best game viewing in Africa.
