Old Mondoro Bushcamp review

Top notch bush camp everything you could possibly want is available. Your wish is their command. Possibly one of the finest bush camps in Zambia.

Also the best place to see leopard (realise wildlife sigthings can be unpredictable) but we saw them on virtually every game drive.

Just for good measure we saw an Aardvark others saw 4 in one night!

Pangolins are around but you would have to be very lucky we were not!!

Old Mondoro Bushcamp review

This was our last camp and possibly our favourite as it is very small and rustic and the animals were always around the camp.

Opening our door to confront an elephant who then walked around the back of our tent and investigated out outdoor bath is a brilliant experience.

Old Mondoro Bushcamp review

A more authentic bushcamp than Chiawa but excellent in its own way. Personally would have liked to stay here first before Chiawa but this was not possible for us. We even saw an Aardvark and honey badgers! yipee!!

Old Mondoro Bushcamp review

After seven delightful days in South Luangwa, Old Mondoro promised the added attraction of game viewing by boat. Sunsetsand sundowners on the Zambezi were magical.

It has an authentic,remote bushcamp feel coupled with comfortable, well appointed reed/canvas walled riverside chalets. Food was excellent and varied and the service was outstanding. Staffing levels were generous, enabling it to offer a flexible agenda of activities tailored to the interests of clients. Our guides were very knowledgeable and responsive to our interest in birds and flora as well as game.

We successfully added to our already lengthy list of recent sightings of lion, leopard buffalo elephant, antelope and birds. Addtional treats included three fish eagles picking out catfish from a drying waterhole, followed later by a leopard on a similar but unsuccessful quest and night drive sightings of honey badgers,porcupines,striped jackals, civets and wonder of wonders, even a pangolin.

Old Mondoro certainly lived up to its reputation

Old Mondoro Review

We were hugely impressed with Old Mondoro and really enjoyed our stay here. There is a great range of activiities on both land and the river with excellent guiding to get the best from them.

Ryan was a great host – both professional and friendly- nothing was ever too much trouble for him. We were pleasantly surprised by the sheer density of the game – no driving around trying to search for things here. Had some good leopard and lion sitings here in addition to great birding, particularly on the river.

The canoeing down the Zambezi was also very exciting and a highlight of our time here. Being able to see elephants and buffalo drinking in the lagoon from the deck of our room meant that there was no such thing as a siesta.

Old Mondoro Bushcamp review

Very nice location. The bath tub facing the pond is excellent.

Ryan was very attentive and informed Anita (Chiawa) that I don't like broccoli though I didn't mention it on the form since there is always plenty to eat.
Canoeing and fishing was excellent. Very good and patient guides.

Old Mondoro Bushcamp review

We wished that we could have stayed longer. But by the time we booked ( February ) there was no more availability, what didn't proof to be the case when we were overthere. A regrettable result of block booking and afterwards cancelling by some travel agents ?
Walks, game drives, canoeing , perfect.

Camp management ( Pam, Ryan) , staff & guides ( Wallace, Sebastian and all others ) contributed to the superb reputation of
Old Mondoro.

Old Mondoro Bushcamp review

This camp felt more "posh" than Tafika but there was something missing here ...maybe it was the experience of the staff or the genuine at home feeling.

We loved the location and the adventure. Rooms were great.
