Pom Pom is located in a private concession in the heart of the Okavango Delta west of the Moremi Game Reserve, a classically designed safari camp overlooking the lily strewn Pom Pom Lagoon. The camp offers nine traditional large Meru-safari-tents with en-suite showers and flush toilets, one of which is a family option (adjoined tent with shared bathroom).

The showers are enclosed, but roofless for that true bush experience. Relax in the beautiful dining, lounge and bar areas, all overlooking the picturesque lagoon, escape the midday heat by enjoying the pool, plus unwind around the open fireplace right at the edge of the lagoon to enjoy your nightcap.

Activities included are game drives, night drives, walking safaris and mokoro excursions all escorted by local expert guides. The tranquillity and beauty of the delta with its winding water ways, open lagoons and palm tree islands, will be a highlight of your safari. Boating is offered when water levels permit.
Hippo and crocodile are found in the deeper lagoons plus big predators such as lion and leopard, along with buffalo, giraffe, zebra and wildebeest move through the area.

If you are lucky, some of the nocturnal animals such as serval, civet and genet may be seen on you night drive. Pom Pom is a birders paradise.. with the regular sightings of Pels Fishing Owl, African Fish Eagle, Giant Eagle Owl and White Backed Vultures.

The Okavango Delta is where the wild things are: an immense, waterlogged oasis alive with elephants and birdlife, adrift in the middle of Kalahari sands. The real magic of the Delta lies in its water, trickling through from far away highlands, and spreading across the channels and floodplains. During winter in the Kalahari, when the sun has baked the earth bare and turned the desert its driest, water fills the Okavango; transforming the floodplains into a Noah’s Ark of African wildlife. As the water brings life to the delta, its local residents shape and recreate it. Termites slowly build mounds into islands, germinated with palm trees by passing elephants. Waterways open and close on the whim of wide-bottomed hippos, carving out channels where they crash through reeds, and leaving room behind them for exploration by mokoro. The Okavango has many faces, which change throughout the year, prompted by that most unpredictable diva of all: the weather. Water levels rise and drop, expanding and shrinking islands, while animals move where the life is easiest and the grass greenest. In a few days, a sandy road driven by vehicle can become a waterway of unknowable depth, prompting a safari by boat instead. Where and when you stay in the Okavango Delta will hugely influence what you do in the bush each day, the animals you’re most likely to see and finally, the safari experience you’ll have. The delta’s watery heart is best discovered by mokoro through shallow channels and floodplains, as well as crossing the islands on foot. For less water and more of the big game, visit a camp on its drier edges (including Moremi Game Reserve and the Khwai Community Area), jump on a vehicle and seek out the animals hiding in the woodlands.
