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.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”
