Combine a stay here with Chiawa Camp for the ultimate safari experience in Zambia.
I have never been compelled to write to a company to tell them about my booking experience, but I feel that in this instance I must. I spoke to both Robin Spanner and a representative from another travel company. The next day, Robin sent me a full tailor made itinerary whilst the other rep sent me a link to one of the standard holidays on their website. Needless to say, Robin had already won my custom and confidence.

This simple camp, and sister camp of Chiawa, Old Mondoro is located towards the eastern side of the Lower Zambezi National Park in an open area of faidherbia forest. Just four en suite bush chalets are made of local pole and thatch construction and set out along a channel of the Zambezi frequented by copious hippo. Activities are focussed around game drives and boating, however with so much activity in or around the camp it isn't necessary to venture too far away.
