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.
