I am not a prolific TA reviewer - only for the very special places in my lifetime. This is one of them. My wife and I work about half-time in Africa including Botswana. When I asked our government sponsor (who has been all over) where to go if we take a safari - the answer was clearly - Okavanga Delta...

Some of the best game-viewing in Botswana is to be had on Chief's Island in the Okavango Delta, and this is right at the northern end of that body. Excellent sightings of lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, buffalo, birds and so much more are common. The rooms are great and have fantastic views.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A nostalgic look back at our roots as safari pioneers in Botswana, Mombo Trails Camp is a light-footprint tented camp that has been specially erected to provide accommodation during the rebuild of Mombo and Little Mombo camps. As such, there are no permanent structures, but all the luxury and comforts of a Mombo experience, along with Mombo’s world-famous spectacular game viewing on offer. Eight elegantly furnished and spacious guest tents with en-suite facilities are situated on slightly raised decks to minimise impact on the site, all under large, shady trees, and often within sight of a variety of the area’s wildlife. Set under towering jackalberry trees, the dining, bar and lounge area offers beautiful views over the floodplain. Delicious meals are enjoyed here or under the stars, while veteran Mombo guests, guides and staff gather around the campfire to relive the history of one of our longest-running camps. ... more   less
