Old Mondoro Camp
About Old Mondoro Camp
Owned and operated by the Cumings family of Chiawa Camp repute, the concept of Old Mondoro is simple, to provide guests with an authentic, intimate safari that concentrates on the wildlife and bush experience while not forgoing any creature comforts or service. Old Mondoro offers some of the most prolific leopard sightings to be had in Africa, no one could want for more.
With only eight beds, Old Mondoro is the Lower Zambezi National Park's most intimate and private safari camp, exuding charm and charisma like nowhere else. Overlooking a maze of hippo-inhabited islands from a grove of Acacia trees that tower above the massive elephant bulls that seem to be constantly feeding on them, this is perhaps the most beautiful site in the Lower Zambezi National Park and certainly one of the most remote. For those wanting a premier Lower Zambezi safari in a small camp with all comforts and a fabulous guiding team, inside the national park, look no further than Old Mondoro.
Appropriately constructed of canvas and natural materials, Old Mondoro has an open and adventurous feel, providing a perfect retreat after a day filled with excitement in the bush and yet where much of the action will happen right in front of you. At night canvas blinds are rolled down and secured although with the night chorus you are assured of never feeling too cosseted or cut off from the action. Each room also has a shaded timber sun deck complete with comfy daybed for relaxation with the very best of views.
