Gomoti Plains Camp Gomoti, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Ideally set in a cool sheltered spot beneath a canopy of mature acacia trees, Gomoti Plains Camp is situated on the edge of the Gomoti River system and floodplains in the centre of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. Nestled into evergreen riparian woodland, the main area includes a beautifully outfitted large mess tent full of colour and style, housing the dining area and lounge, a perfect spot to relax in between morning and afternoon activities. By night, the camp is illuminated by solar power lighting and paraffin lamps, which emit a gentle romantic glow.
Each evening, guests are invited for pre-dinner drinks around the campfire to share stories with their fellow travellers and guides. Typically, dining takes place outside either under the shade or under the stars. The food served is an excellent mixture of local cuisine flavoured and good old-fashioned home-style cooking.

Gomoti Plains is made up of eight classic safari tents and two family tents. Each tent is tastefully furnished with safari-style décor and is equipped with stunning teak chairs and a wardrobe. All raised on wooden decks, the tents boast great views of the floodplains beyond, and each room has a shaded veranda. The two family units comprise two spacious bedrooms with an adjoining living room in between. Behind the living area is a shared bathroom with an indoor and outdoor shower with hot and cold running water, flush loos and twin basins.

Activities

Game drives
Game drives are conducted in the mornings and afternoon/evenings at camp. They usually last about three hours each and are conducted along the river systems and flood plains around the camp. The wildlife in the area is prolific and chances are good to see some of the larger predators, herds of elephant and buffalo and all the plains animals that occur here. Night drives are conducted in the early evening offering one a chance to see the smaller more nocturnal animals with spotlights.

Walking
Walking safaris are also conducted generally in the morning with armed guides. The walks are leisurely and time is taken to observe the smaller things in the bush that one normally misses when driving. Walking is weather dependent, or dependent on the condition of the terrain.

Mokoro safari
This is a dug out canoe poled by an experienced poler in the shallower waters of the Okavango. It is a great way to see the waterways and is tranquil and quiet. These excursions take place in the mornings or longer day trips can be arranged. Explore the islands around camp and come back rested and rejuvenated.

Boating
Typically in a motor boat, on the main Gomoti channel. (water dependant)
