Mondoro is still our favourite camp in Zambia

This was our third visit to Old Mondoro and it lived up to our very high expectations. We travelled in June on this trip and expected to see less animals but we still saw a lot including lion with young cubs and leopard.

The guiding (Sebastian, Joseph, Johan and Reuben) was excellent on drives and walks. We enjoyed our boat and canoe activities as much as ever.

We were well looked after by Pam and Ryan

We will return

Old Mondoro Bushcamp review

Wonderful "Bushcamp" (Luxury in my eyes), very nice setting and completely different terrain with the Jeki Plains etc. compared to Chiawa and Camps more uptstream the Zambezi.

Wonderful stay and fanatastic Host and Room No. 3 as well. View from the bed upstream the Zambezi! Fantastic!

4 Nights stay and 6x Leopard sightings! A Place to go back!

Heaven on the Zambezi!

Now THIS is what a bushcamp should be! Old Mondoro ticks all of the boxes -- beautiful chalets that offer the perfect balance between "rustic" and "luxury" (and stunningly located mere meters from the river); great food; superb, yet refined and relaxed, service; wonderful activities with excellent guiding; and the exclusivity of a small camp.

The other two parties occupying camp when I arrived were multiple-repeat customers (one couple was on, I think, their fifteenth annual visit to Old Mondoro!), and I can certainly understand why. I would return here in a heartbeat, and not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family looking for a high-quality safari in a stunning setting.

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
