A genuine, small bush camp on the Zambezi River

Knowledgeable guides help create a memorable glamping experience

Old Mondoro is located in the open area of Faidherbia Forest, approximately an hour east downstream by boat from their sister camp, Chiawa. The camp is simple, yet attention to detail is high with beautifully crafted open chalets in remote surroundings.

The accommodation has been laid out along a hippo-friendly channel off the Zambezi. The screened-in reed chalets have canvas roofs, left open during the day, and canvas blinds with window screens that are lowered for privacy and security at night. The king-sized beds face out onto the river and the bathrooms include a large outdoor stone splash tub and shower with hot water 24/7 as well as indoor flushing loos and twin sinks. Huge private decks provide a comfortable relaxing area with day beds to watch the elephants passing just metres away. There is also a chalet with two bedrooms and two bathrooms ideal for families. Delicious meals are served fireside or in the open-sided thatched dining room.

Activities at Old Mondoro focus on game drives, walks, canoeing and fishing, while the elephant and hippo activity around the lodges creates a truly unique safari experience. All the activities are led by highly experienced guides.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
