Pom Pom Camp 

 rated 4.5/5 from 15 reviews

The camp is on Pom Pom island in the private Matsebe Concession in the world-famous Okavango Delta. It’s a scenic area with myriads of channels and lagoons waiting to be explored. The large main lodge is the social heart of the camp, with a lounge, dining area, bar and boma, all with views of the lily-filled lagoon. You’re welcome to make yourself at home here, settling down on a sofa, enjoying a drink of your choice from the honesty bar. The swimming pool and sun deck is just a short distance away. Meals are usually communal buffets, giving you time to get to know your fellow guests and the camp managers and to enjoy sampling different dishes. Their new ‘dining in the wild’ experience transports you to a lovely bush location where a fire and delicious 3-course dinner are waiting. Fabulous!

There are nine guest tents providing light and airy accommodation. The shade of trees coupled with ceiling fans keeps daytime temperature pleasantly cool. The en-suite bathrooms are open to the sky, sounds and scents of nature. They are equipped with his and hers hand basins, and shower and flush toilet. The honeymoon tent also has a luxurious outdoor bath. All tents have sitting areas and private decks.

Each day you’ll have a choice of activities, so you can spend the morning relaxing as you navigate the waterways of the delta by mokoro, or immerse yourself in the minutiae of the bush on a guided walk. Later, venture out in a 4X4 safari vehicle to observe flora and fauna a little further from the camp. Game drives are taken with a driver/guide and tracker.  You can round the day off with an enthralling night drive, looking out for civet, serval and genet. These experiences combine to create a memorable and comprehensive safari.

This is the perfect place if you are looking for a small, rustic camp with great game viewing and a choice of activities. The mix of boating, game drives and walking is fantastic and the private concession means you’ll see very few other vehicles. I want to return here and stay longer.

5/5

“Could not fault the camp or its superb location. An exciting place to be in the tent with the animal noises at night, really close to nature. The Game drives, boat and mokoro trip was memorable with excellent guides. Morning activity was followed by brunch and a welcome siesta before the afternoon activity. Much better time schedule than Ngoma.”

5/5

“The accommodation was lovely, spacious and comfortable. The food was really good and the atmosphere when we all sat round the table to eat was great. The wonderful singing to welcome us from the teams both here and at Sango made us feel really special. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff here and at Sango.”

5/5

“After jack’s we wondered if our other camps would be ordinary but PomPom is far from ordinary. Our ‘tent’ was comfortable and quirky especially the outdoor shower and the wildlife coming through the camp was entertaining and a constant surprise! Baloo & Tessa are great and sincere hosts. We loved the mokoro boat ride and birdlife”
