Lion, leopard and cheetah are all found here; and even smaller predators like serval and side-striped jackal are occasionally seen.
Between March and May when the waters come large mammals are able to move into the Chief’s Island area which contains rich resources of grass and Acacia woodland.
By September and October the waters have started to recede and leave behind vast floodplains of short green grass when the islands are now at their driest.
This is the secret to the amazing diversity and quantity of wildlife in the Mombo region.
The bird life is incredible around Little Mombo Camp.
