Overview

As the name suggests, this camp is located on Pom Pom Island, on the South side of the Okavango Delta, Northern Botswana. This charming camp is in a great location from which to explore the floodplains of the Delta and offers a very competitive price.

Situated next to a lagoon, this camp is relaxed and scenic. The main building has open facilities all housed under a large thatched roof. A dining room, lounge areas, bar, shop and boma are a short walk away from a cosy shaded pool area offering guests plenty of ways to relax during their leisure time. In such a prime position expect a variety of animals to wander through camp including hippos, baboons and elephants!

The camp offers a number of different activities; the most popular being very much dependent on the time of year in this changing landscape. The traditional vehicle safaris offer the best sightings between November and May and experienced rangers are skilled at finding the best wildlife. For the remainder of the year, walking, motorboat and canoe safaris are all fantastic ways to enjoy the Delta and spot big predators such as lions, wild dog and leopards.

Accommodation is made up of nine ensuite Meru style tents, all with views over Pom Pom lagoon. Raised above the river with gorgeous views and larger than most safari accommodation, the rooms here are a pleasant surprise. The bedroom areas lead onto a large lounge, ensuite bathroom and outside shower. A family tent and a honeymoon suite (including an outside bathtub) are also available. The camp is run on solar power so no wifi is available but charging is available centrally.

The minimum age at Pom Pom Camp is 6 years old. Families with children aged 6-12 must book a private guide and vehicle at extra cost and under 12s won't be able to take part in mokoro (canoe) and walking activities.

Pom Pom Camp is a reliable choice for guests looking to experience all Okavango has to offer at a much more reasonable price than some other neighbouring camps. With strong wildlife, comfortable accommodation and professional staff, this is one of our favourites in the area.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
