Old Mondoro is one of the quirkiest lodges in the Lower Zambezi and will certainly appeal to those who want to be in the thick of nature with all mod cons. The wild animals that live here-waterbuck, baboons, buffalo, elephant, being the most common-occupy the space just as much as the camp and guests do.
Only 5 chalets occupy this Lower Zambezi bush camp, providing a remote and private atmosphere for each guest. A private deck provides additional seating for afternoon naps, getting lost in a book or just observing the movie-worthy backdrop of the mighty Zambezi or winterthorn trees across the channel, where an endless variety of Zambia wildlife can be seen weaving throughout the shade and cooling off in the water.
Meandering elephant walk in camp throughout the day, to slake their thirst from the channel or to pick fallen pods from the roof of your bush chalet.
An open sided dining area looks across the river where you can spot hippo and elephant crossing between river islands-towards the far bank. There you’ll find Zimbabwe.Show Less
