Pom Pom Camp

Last updated: 03 December, 2023

On a private concession in the heart of the Okavango Delta, bordering the Moremi Game Reserve, Pom Pom offers a full Delta experience – at half the price of many other camps. Big game can be sparse though – for the Big Five you need to go to nearby Moremi – but the wildlife is diverse.

Set on a pretty lagoon right in the Delta, the main lodge is thatched, homely and comfortable, with nine en-suite tented rooms with pretty decks overlooking the water. Tents are medium-sized and simply furnished – but have hot showers (partially open to the skies), and there’s a small pool in which to cool off on boiling summer days.

Although not a luxurious camp, the food is surprisingly good (and the carrot cake at tea is particularly scrumptious). Staff are friendly. The kitchen staff make a real effort to make meals special, with prettily-laid tables and polished lamps.

Game & game viewing

Elephant populations here are good and experienced guides take guests in safety through areas they walk, to watch them from close quarters. Because it’s in a private concession, the camp can offer night activities – from spotting porcupine to star-gazing.

Bird life in the Okavango is spectacular, from pied kingfishers (who fish right outside the camp) to rare Pel’s fishing owls. Take your binoculars. Also look for Tsessebe, spotted-neck otter, pangolin – and occasionally wild dog.

Safari activities include day and night drives, bush walks, mokoro (canoe) trips through the Delta and bream fishing.
