Discover Old Mondoro


Old Mondoro is a charming camp set deep within the Lower Zambezi National Park. One of the most remote in the park, Old Mondoro offers an authentic and intimate experience without compromising on comfort or luxury. It is the sister camp of Chiawa Camp.

The Lower Zambezi, a key national park of Zambia, lies between the rugged and dramatic Zambezi escarpment and the wide and spectacular Zambezi River. The Zambezi runs for 120 km through the park and with the protection of the Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe on the opposite side, this is a haven for wildlife. The Lower Zambezi is known for its healthy populations of big game, particularly four of the Big 5 (buffalo, elephant, leopard, and lion), A 350-species bird count is why avid birders return time and again to the Lower Zambezi.

The five reed chalets all have canvas roofs that are left open during the day and canvas blinds with window screens that are lowered for privacy and security at night. All chalets have shaded timber viewing decks, lighting & power point, standing fan, indoor flush loo & washbasin, outdoor shower & bathtub. Comfy beds (King or two twins) with Egyptian cotton linens and mosquito nets complete the accommodation – all with wonderful views.

  • Game drives

    Game drives at Old Mondoro are done either in the morning or afternoon and are a great way to see the Lower Zambezi National Park and all that it has to offer. The game drive vehicles take a maximum of 4 people thus everyone gets a 'window seat'.

  • Walking Safaris

    Starting off at dawn, the walking safaris at Old Momdoro are led by seasoned guides and give one the chance to truly be immersed in nature.

  • Canoe Safaris

    A wonderful way to make the most of the mighty Zambezi River. You will be accompanied by an experienced canoe guide as you navigate the river taking it all in.

  • Fishing

    A popular activity on The Zambezi River that is enjoyed by all! It is on a catch-and-release basis and provides hours of fun as well as some game viewing opportunities.

  • Boat Safari

    A boat safari is another fantastic way to enjoy the Zambezi River taking in the sights and sounds of the wilderness.

Located on the shores of the mighty Zambezi River, Lower Zambezi National Park naturally enjoys great sightings of crocodiles and hippos plus that of the large water monitor lizard. Also due to location, buffalo and elephant frequents cross between Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools and Lower Zambezi National Parks. Eland, zebra, wildebeest, waterbuck, bushbuck, and kudu have good populations, but impala is the most dominant species of antelope here. Grysbok and duiker are rarer but sighted sometimes. When it comes to carnivores, hyena, lion, and leopard are present. Wild dogs are less frequently seen.

Over 370 bird species have been sighted in this park. These species include bee-eaters, storks, herons, eagles, kingfishers (brown-hooded, giant, woodland, malachite, pied are common). On the river the egrets, cormorants, darters, fish eagles and storks are at play. African skimmers, ospreys, and spoonbills are some of the rare species here.
