Old Mondoro Camp

Family-run Old Mondoro Camp offers authentic yet luxurious safari experiences deep in the heart of Zambia’s Lower Zambezi National Park.

Whilst undeniably luxurious, family-run Old Mondoro Camp offers an authentic bushcamp atmosphere in the heart of leopard territory. There are only 4 open-sided suites at this intimate property, constructed out of timber and thatch. Each unit features a canopied king-sized bed, draped in romantic mosquito nets as well as a bathtub with a view. At night, blinds can be drawn for privacy while ensuring you can still fall asleep to the sounds of the lively African bush.

The airy main lodge overlooks a lagoon dotted with islands and fringed with acacias, often browsed by graceful elephant bulls. Meals can be enjoyed here under cover, or beneath the stars around a campfire. During the day, it’s not uncommon to find a delicious afternoon tea spread out next to the river and you may even savour lunch on a boat in the middle of the Zambezi.

Things to do at Old Mondoro Camp include game drives in modified open 4WD vehicles, expert-guided walks, exhilarating canoe trips and relaxed river cruises in near-silent boats. You can even discover the biodiversity of the Lower Zambezi at night, with staff carrying special diffused white lights for photography to ensure minimal interference with wild subjects.

Zambia Overview

Why should I travel to Zambia?
Apart from being the site of the magnificent Victoria Falls, Zambia also offers game-rich wildlife parks that are relatively unspoiled by mass tourism. For the more adventurous, there are walking safaris and canoeing trips along the Zambezi River.

What is the climate like in Zambia?
There are 3 distinct seasons – cool and dry from May-July (23°-25°C) but cold at night, hot and dry from August-October (30°-40°C), and warm and wet from November-April (28°-35°C).

What can I combine Zambia with?
Zambia is best combined with its closest neighbours such as Botswana and Zimbabwe – which both offer amazing scenery and wildlife. South Africa is another option, where you can explore picturesque Cape Town, Table Mountain and the Cape Winelands.

How to get to Zambia?
There are regular flights daily from Johannesburg in South Africa to the Zambian capital of Lusaka, where you can board connecting flights to a range of safari camps. There are also regular flights from Johannesburg into Livingstone, a large town close to the Victoria Falls.

USA – There are no direct flights to Lusaka from the United States. The best connections are via Johannesburg, UAE or Nairobi.

UK/EU – Again there are no direct flights into Lusaka from anywhere in Europe. The best connections are via Johannesburg, UAE or Nairobi.
