Named after the water fig tree that grows along the river banks of the Okavango Delta, Gomoti Plains Camp is offers tented accommodation set in a private concession in the south-eastern Delta. A modest-sized camp of just 10 tented suites (including two family tents), Gomoti lies on the game-rich floodplains of the Gomoti River, long known for its dense concentrations of wildlife.
Accessible by air, a safari at Gomoti Plains Camp gives you the advantage of enjoying game sightings by land and – when water levels are high enough – by traditional canoe (known as a mokoro) and motor boat. Game-drive vehicles led by expert guides head out in the early morning and late afternoon to search for big cats and herds of elephant and buffalo. You also have the opportunity to sit back on spot-lit night drives or lace up your boots and explore the Delta with your guide on foot.
Suitable for most types of traveller, Gomoti Plains Camp will especially appeal to nature lovers and photographers. The scenery around camp is mesmerising and the early morning and late afternoon light is magical. Wildlife is abundant in the area and besides the familiar heavyweight animals, the Gomoti region has a reputation for endangered wild dogs and other predators such as leopards and crocodiles. Giraffe, antelope and zebra are common in the area and it is a great destination for bird watchers.
