Pom Pom Camp is a small, intimate and comfortable safari lodge in an amazing location inside the Okavango Delta on the Xudum River system. On the western border of the Moremi Game Reserve. Surrounded by permanent waterways and overlooking a lagoon - fringed with dreamy Ilala Palms and papyrus - Pom Pom Camp offers all the exclusivity of many dearer luxury safari lodges in the delta.
The rooms are Meru-styled East African safari tents: an elevated wooden deck supports a large canvas awning beneath which another canvas tent is stretched explorer-style beneath a dense grove of trees. The deck extends over the water to form a private, shady balcony and out back an en suite bathroom with a roofless - though completely private - shower.
Flying over the delta to land at Pom Pom Camp, you will get an idea of just how remote this safari lodge is. And then you'll marvel at how relative luxury presides in such wild and raw circumstances. The living area has a lovely fireside gathering area, a covered high table dining area and comfortable chairs dotted about looking out through the open-sided thatched structure to the amazing Okavango Delta scenery that starts beneath your feet and extends as far as Earth's curvature will allow - or the nearest elephant.
The private concession, the vast wilderness and the amazing game guides conspire to provide you with an out-of-this-world wildlife safari experience: the real reason you've saved all those food stamps to go to Africa.
Safari activities include both water experiences - on mekoro dugout canoes and motorboats - and land experiences with game drives, night drives and seasonal walking safaris.
Birdlife is spectacular with African jacanas trotting across the lilly pads, Pels fishing owl, the nimble African skimmer, giant eagle owls, kingfishers and many others to enjoy from the boat or the bar - or your bedroom, or the pool…
Though the safari is more about nature here - with beautiful scenery and an amazing kaleidoscope of life, the game viewing is surprisingly good with most of the African animals to be seen including: baboon, black-backed jackal, cheetah, dwarf mongoose, elephant, giraffe, hippo, honey badger, hyena, impala, lechwe, leopard, lion, monkey, pangolin, porcupine, side – striped jackal, spotted – necked otter, tsessebe, warthog, wild dog, wildebeest and zebra.
