About

About Old Mondoro

Old Mondoro, set in the banks of the Zambezi Rivers, is characterised by vast flood plains and open woodland, creating outstanding game viewing opportunities. Known for its simple luxury, superb home-cooked meals served in the open-sided thatched dining room, and excellent guiding levels, Old Mondoro is a unique 'back to the bush' experience.

Wildlife activity can be observed from the comfort of the lodge, primarily with elephant and hippo viewings, or guests can bring their senses alive with the lodge's walking safaris, and get to know the 'real' Africa.

Location

The camp is set in a grove of acacia trees on the banks of the Zambezi River in the Lower Zambezi National Park some 10 kilometres downstream from Jeki Airstrip, near the Chakwenga River confluence.

How to get there

BY AIR: From Lusaka International Airport guests fly to Jeki Airstrip followed by a 45-minute game drive to camp.
FROM CHIAWA CAMP: It is a 1 hour 20 minute scenic motorboat transfer.

When to go

April and May - most of the rain has faded away, leaving a landscape that is green and lush, with clear skies and pleasantly mild temperatures.

June, July and August - the nights are generally much cooler, but the days are clear and warm. Make sure you bring warm clothes to wrap up in the early mornings and evenings, as some nights get very cold.

September and October - the temperatures climb and it can get very hot in October. However, the game viewing is spectacular as the animals concentrate around the limited water sources and along the river.

November is variable, it can be hot and dry like October, or, you may be lucky enough to experience the first spectacular storms of the season.

Important Information

Zambia is regarded as a malarial area and therefore proper prevention, by way of malaria prophylaxis is recommended. There are many different strains of Malaria requiring specific drugs. Please consult your doctor for the right prophylactic (anti Malarial) drugs. You may also require proof of Yellow Fever and other vaccinations, so please make sure these are up to date - consult your travel agent for details.
