Owned and operated by the Cumings family of Chiawa Camp repute, the concept of Old Mondoro Camp is simple – to provide guests with an authentic, intimate safari that concentrates on the wildlife and bush experience whilst not forgoing any creature comforts or service.
Whilst the luxuries and bush-sophistication of Chiawa Camp are undeniably appealing, guests will also enjoy the “back to the bush” atmosphere of Old Mondoro Camp and so combining these two camps makes for the most rewarding visit to the Lower Zambezi. That said, Old Mondoro is a destination in its own right that also offers some of the most prolific leopard sightings to be had in Africa – no one could want for more.
With only 8 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 the comforts and a fabulous guiding team, inside the national park and at an attractive price look no further than Old Mondoro.
