Overview of Gomoti Plains Camp

Named after the nearby Gomoti River, this camp will make the ideal introduction to the Okavango Delta whether you are a safari first-timer or a veteran of many. Gomoti Plains Camp sits in an especially productive wildlife area which you explore on morning and afternoon game drives, as well as canoe and motorboat safaris during the Okavango’s flood season. A setting within a private conservation area also means exclusive sightings for guests, as well as the option of activities that are not permitted in the neighbouring Moremi Game Reserve – like bush walks with guides and discovering Africa’s unique nocturnal creatures (bush babies, genets, porcupines and giant eagle-owls) on spot-lit night game drives.

It is a beautiful landscape of winding waterways, shimmering floodplains and shadowy forest, and the wildlife is correspondingly diverse. It is an area with a reputation for the heavyweights – elephant, buffalo, hippo and giraffe – plus the possibility of spotting one of Botswana’s very rare rhinos. And of course, it is prime predator country: crocodiles lurk on sandbanks, hyenas prowl the grasslands, and all the big cats (lions, leopards and cheetahs) can be seen here. It is also a stronghold for the elusive African wild dog – a bucket-lister for many safari travellers – and the bird watching is superb at any time of year.

Gomoti Plains Camp features a plunge pool (great for summer) as well as a spa service – enjoy massages and facials in the privacy and comfort of your suite. Modern yet authentic, Gomoti Plains Camp leaves a light environmental footprint and delivers a comprehensive Okavango Delta experience.

      Luxury Tent

      There are ten tented suites at Gomoti Plains Camp, eight designated as Luxury Tents and two as Family Tents which are made up of a pair of tents connected via a lounge and with a shared bathroom at the rear, thus sleeping four comfortably. Minimalist in design but comfortable and elegant, the suites at Gomoti Plains are set on raised wooden platforms and have a day bed, table and chairs on your outdoor deck. Step inside and it’s a large, light-filled living space with a choice of double or twin beds and plenty of room for unpacking. Electric light and a flask of cold filtered water are a couple of nice touches, and each tent has an en-suite bathroom with double basin, flush toilet and both an indoor and outdoor shower.

      General Facilities

      The main lodge at Gomoti Plains Camp is a tented structure comprising reception, a curio shop and an undercover lounge, dining area, reference library and bar. Set on a raised wooden platform, it overlooks the river’s floodplains with the best views from outside on the deck. Here you also find a swimming pool and sun loungers plus a fire pit and comfortable chairs – the best place to end the day with your favourite drink.

      There is plenty of solar power (with a generator back-up) to ensure electric lights and battery recharging stations. Trained therapists offer optional spa treatments – massages and facials – performed in the privacy of your suite. The same-day complimentary laundry service (weather permitting) is a nice touch.

      Dining

      Meals at Gomoti Plains Camp are served at group and individual tables depending on choice, and either indoors or outside depending on the weather. The day starts early with a dawn wake-up call and a light breakfast at main camp – cereals, fruit, yogurt and pancakes – before your morning safari activity though you can also opt for a cooked breakfast too. A hearty home-cooked brunch awaits your return to camp – hot dishes such as fish, pasta or quiche served with salads and fresh bread with fruit and cheese to finish off.

      Afternoon tea, complete with sandwiches, cakes and homemade lemonade, revitalises you after an early afternoon siesta and then you can look forward to a cold drink or two as you watch the sun set after your afternoon safari. Back at camp you sit down to a three-course dinner served by candle light and accompanied by South African wine and safari stories.

      Children on safari at Gomoti Plains Camp can be catered for with flexible mealtimes and a range of child-oriented meals, and dietary requirements such as vegetarianism are catered for with advance notification. And although meals are generally served at camp, bush breakfasts and picnics plus private dining in your suite are available upon request.
