Old Mondoro is a beautiful, small camp in a wonderful location that complements any visit to Zambia. Takes a step back from the complexity and sophistication of many safari camps and focuses instead on providing guests with a more down to earth though no less comfortable or rewarding safari experience. Situated far inside the Park in lovely walking country (miles of open woodland) with great game viewing, Old Mondoro is a great spot especially for elephants, leopards, and seasonal wild dog sightings.
The Camp - open May 01 – October 31: A canvas and reed lounge area, or sitenje, with timber decks overlooks a maze of islands in the Zambezi River, as does an imaginative outdoor loo. Turn around in your seat and you look across mature open woodland and some of Africa’s finest walking country!
Accommodation is in four screened-in reed chalets with canvas roofs, left open during the day and canvas blinds with window screens are lowered for privacy and security at night. All chalets have shaded timber viewing decks, 220v lighting & power point, indoor flush loo & wash basin, outdoor shower & bath - all with 24/7 hot & cold water. Comfy beds with Egyptian cotton linens and mosquito nets complete the accommodation – all with wonderful views.
8 beds for independent travellers in 4 bush chalets; or 10 beds for Groups by special request. Each bush chalet has two single beds or one King bed
Activities: Walks, drives (day & night), canoeing, game viewing by boat and catch & release angling.
A Day in the Life: The day typically starts with a wake-up call about 15 minutes before sunrise however the movements of the wildlife and guests interests determine the order of the day.

Guest’s typically siesta or relax until afternoon tea which is served around 15:30 with sweet and savoury snacks before the afternoon activity which usually culminates in a night drive returning to camp about 20:00.
