With a Kenyan father, Indian grandparents, and a Portuguese surname, travel is in my blood. I am enthralled by East Africa and would happily talk about Africa’s wildlife, cultures and experiences all day, every day.

Old Mondoro

Old Mondoro is one of the most iconic camps in all of southern Africa but with only 5 chalets, availability is always a little challenging. The camp is located amongst a winter thorn forest in the Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia. The camp has no fences and, as it’s situated in one of the most prolific wildlife areas in the park, it regularly gets animals like herds of elephant or antelope walking through camp, past your chalet and open-air bathroom. The word ‘mondoro’ in the local language means lion. While there are fantastic lion prides and sightings nearby, Old Mondoro has a reputation for its more unusual and rare sightings, such as aardvark and the aggressive honey badger. These are two species that are on the top of the list for every safari enthusiast. Old Mondoro is owned by the Cumings family, with sister properties being Chiawa Camp (also in the Lower Zambezi) and Puku Ridge in the South Luangwa National Park. Game viewing from Old Mondoro really is one of the best in Zambia – if not all of Africa – and the best thing is that you can enjoy it by vehicle, boat, or on foot.
