A smaller camp with everything you want to get out of a safari experience, Old Mondoro is the sister camp of Chiawa Camp. Whilst not as luxurious it is where comfort meets authenticity, offering a genuine and intimate Safari to its guests. Concentrating on the wildlife that surrounds the area the camp boasts extraordinary guides to maximise your experience.
Lower Zambezi National Park
4 en suite bush chalets
Elephant sightings around the camp
Yes, best for 12+
May – November
The Rooms are rustic and open, constructed with natural materials. It is one of the most beautiful and remote sites on the Lower Zambezi and along the lagoon inland, you can watch the inhabitants grazing along the banks throughout the day from your very own sun deck. With the lagoon being a favourite for the big bull elephants, it’s hard to take a midday siesta as there is so much action in the area!
Old Mondoro offers all the comforts whilst still fitting in so perfectly with its natural surroundings. The outdoor bath and shower are open, and look right out onto the Zambezi River allowing for some magical views and star gazing. During the evenings the blinds in the rooms are rolled down and you can hear the nightlife surrounding you, it is truly an extraordinary and fulfilling experience.
The team at Old Mondoro is small but each member is passionate about what they do and where they work. They bring a very personable experience to guests and you become captivated into their world during the time you spend here. The guides are of an extremely high quality and the management couple are well versed safari lovers who make excellent hosts during meal times answering all your bush questions and entertaining you round the campfire.
The Lower Zambezi has so much to offer at the camps ensuring they take your experience to the next level. Having the Zambezi River on their doorstep Old Mondoro (and Chiawa) is one of the few camps that are allowed to take guests on river safaris within the park. There are a number of channels to explore and it’s great to have the opportunity to see what the park has to offer via boat – mainly elephant, hippo and buffalo but if you are an avid bird watcher this is a great way to observe the bird life along the river and its banks. With the expert guides, you will learn so much about the African bush and the wildlife around.
