Pom Pom Camp

Okavango Delta

Rating: Mid-range    

Pom Pom Camp overview

Pom Pom Camp is located on Pom Pom Island in a private concession in the Okavango Delta, on the western edge of the Moremi Game Reserve. The Delta covers an area of some 16,000 square kilometres and supports a wealth of flora and fauna.

The camp is set under a grove of trees offering shade from the sun and overlooks a lagoon, a perfect spot to enjoy the sunset. The vintage-style canvas tents offer spacious accommodation with en-suite facilities, a private lounge area and a veranda. The main building, under thatch and canvas, houses the lounge, dining area and bar as well as the pool. There is also a gift shop and boma area.

Activities offered include game drives, night drives, mokoro trips and walks. The best game viewing is offered in the Delta, where guests have the opportunity of seeing all major predators, a variety of big game and plains game, as well as an abundance of bird life.


Open: Pomp om Camp is open all year. 

Location: Pom Pom Camp is on an island in the Matsebe concession of the Okavango Delta. The camp has its own airstrip which is a 20 minute flight from Maun. 

Rooms: There are 9 large walk-in tents set beneath the shade of tall trees and overlooking a lagoon which attracts varied wildlife. All have en-suite bathrooms, open to the sky, with shower, twin hand basins and flush toilet. Toiletries are provided. Each tent has a small seating area separated from bedroom by sliding glass doors. The secluded honeymoon suite has an outdoor bath. There is one larger tent that can accommodate a family of up to four (two adults and two children). Tents are cooled by fans and have electric lights. 

At Pom Pom you can take mokoro and motorboat rides, go fishing, take day and night game drives, go bird watching and fishing. Nature walks are offered when possible. 

Facilities: The core of the camp is a thatched building containing the bar, lounge and dining area. There are charging points and a curio shop. In front of this is an open air space where you’ll enjoy drinks and pre-dinner snacks around the camp fire. There’s a swimming pool close to the main lodge. The camp has a laundry service. The camp is lit by lamps at night and it’s useful to take a torch. The camp is open (unfenced) and guards escort you to and from tents after dark. 

Dining: Meals are taken communally with other guests, camp managers and guides, around the large dining table. They are generally buffets. The 'dining in the wild' is an atmospheric 3-course bush dinner by a campfire in a special location 10 minutes from the camp. 

Children: Children aged 6 and older are welcome.  A private vehicle must be booked for children aged 6-11.  The minimum age for walking safaris and mokoro excursions is 12 years.

Health: This is a malarial area. 

Communication: There is no internet access.

Mr. Harry McDermid

"Could not fault the camp or its superb location. An exciting place to be in the tent with the animal noises at night, really close to nature. The Game drives, boat and mokoro trip was memorable with excellent guides. Morning activity was followed by brunch and a welcome siesta before the afternoon activity. Much better time schedule than Ngoma."

Mr. Richard Clements
"Great place to end our holiday, still provided us with different experiences in a relaxing environment"
Mrs. Tracy Heazel
"Accommodation was amazing as were the staff - food was also fab!"
"Delightful. No charging facilities in the tent, but adequate central place in the main lodge. "
Mrs. Janet Hetherington
"The accommodation was lovely, spacious and comfortable. The food was really good and the atmosphere when we all sat round the table to eat was great. The wonderful singing to welcome us from the teams both here and at Sango made us feel really special. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff here and at Sango."
