The Okavango Delta has captured the imagination of intrepid travellers and wildlife enthusiasts for decades, and it’s not for nothing that it’s home to a plethora of wildlife. Formed by a number of interlinking channels and lagoons, the delta is punctuated by beautiful islands of acacia woodland. Pom Pom Camp is set in the heart of this African paradise, on Pom Pom Island, on Moremi Game Reserve’s western border. Featuring nine spacious tents, nestled in the shade of magnificent indigenous trees, Pom Pom Camp offers an authentic African safari experience, complete with views of the adjacent lily-covered lagoon, which is also the playground of hippos.
Each tent includes an en suite bathroom with all the amenities you’d expect from a luxury establishment, and they also each feature an expansive private outdoor area from where guests can enjoy picture-perfect views of the lagoon below. The camp’s main area offers guests a help-yourself bar – complete with a tea and coffee station, two cozy lounges and a large dining area where you can socialize with some of the other visitors, and exchange stories of your wildlife sightings of the day.
One of the main perks of this relaxed camp is that there are so many spaces to relax in. For example, the comfy hammocks provide a welcome respite – and shade! – during the heat of the day, while the swimming pool is just the ticket for cooling off in-between game drives. And at the end of the day, the inviting campfire is the perfect spot for some reflection.
Pom Pom is a nature lover’s dream destination. Rich with all the species of game one would expect from an African safari holiday, but also teeming with bird-life, whose melodies provide the soundtrack of your stay. The camp organizes daily and nightly game drives, led by expert guides, who will show you the best the area has to offer. And be sure not to miss a traditional mokoro trip through the waterways of the delta, hosted by an informed “poler”, who will guide you through the waters of this unique habitat.
