Gomoti Plains Camp
This lovely camp opened in 2016 is a safari-lovers delight and until recently, the area remained a well-kept secret for many decades. The camp can be found in a stunningly pretty area on the edge of the Gomoti River System southeast of the Okavango Delta. What makes this area unique and extra special are the large concentrations of wildlife which thrive on the lush grasses of the Gomoti Plains and plentiful waterways. The Gomoti trees line the waterways and provide excellent cover for nesting water birds such as herons and storks. The Gomoti region has been the local haunt of many of the older guides and Okavango dwellers who refer to it in nostalgic terms when they used to camp along this river system.
Gomoti Plains Camp has 10 luxury tents which include 2 luxury family tents and 8 luxury double tents, all with en-suite shower rooms. In addition to day and night 4 x 4 game drives, the camp offers water based activities such as mokoro excursions and motor boat trips. For an up close to nature experience, there are also walking safaris available.
The sitting and dining areas are under canvas, sumptuously furnished with hand-made fabrics, teak furniture, cut crystal decanters and white linen table clothes. Where possible, dining is arranged under the stars in the open area in front of the lounge. Food served at the camp is a wonderful mixture of local cuisine favoured and cooked with love and skill, locally referred to as gourmet bushfare!
