Located within the Matsebe concession in Botswana’s Okavango delta, Pom Pom Camp boasts a permanent lagoon surrounded by miles of reeds, where hippos are regular features.
The authentic camp has nine tents, all built in the style of traditional safari tents complete with flushing loos and hot water. Bathrooms are roofless - although private and secure we hasten to add - only adding to the authentic safari experience, and one tent has an open air bath overlooking the lagoon. Families are also catered for, with one tent sleeping four and within close proximity to the lodge.
The campfire is the central hub at night, where guests gather round to relive the day's events before heading to the bar or for supper in the main thatched building. There is also a swimming pool.
Game drives, accompanied by guide and tracker, allow guests to see the various species of game in the area, and Mokoro and fishing trips are also on offer. Look out for baboon, cheetah, dwarf mongoose, elephant, lion, impala, hippo and zebra…we could go on. Birdwatchers also have plenty to look out for, and Pied Kingfishers and African Jacana (or the Lily Trotter as it's affectionately known) are regulars on the waters.
