Old Mondoro

Old Mondoro is the Lower Zambezi's only bushcamp, albeit a very comfortable one, providing its guests - many of them repeat visitors - with a top wildlife experience using best guides and equipment; guests receive a high level of comfort and most attentive, personalised service whilst respecting and sustaining the wildlife, habitat and local peoples of the Lower Zambezi.




Like its big sister, Chiawa Camp, Old Mondoro is family-owned and operated, achieving that rare, perfect blend of wild and comfort. With an average of two leopard sightings per day this is also the place to spot these elusive creatures.

Need to Know

Four canvas/reed chalets for eight guests with king size beds (or two twins), mosi-nets and Egyptian cotton. Each room has a shaded verandah, electric fan, indoor loo, indoor washbasin, outdoor shower and bath 'splash' tub, and 24/7 power.


Driving, walking, canoe, boat, fishing. Led by top guides, guests have a full choice of safari activities including day and night game drives, walks (which are this camp's forte and amongst the very best available in Africa), canoe trips, motor boat game viewing and catch & release angling. Old Mondoro is in some of Africa’s finest walking country, incorporating open plains, towering woodland, game rich river islands and channels to explore.
