Pom Pom Camp
Excellent standards without the big price tag
Our rating: Premium | Property style: Tented Camp
Nestled on Pom Pom Island in a private concession in the heart of the Okavango Delta, Pom Pom is a wonderful choice for visitors looking to enjoy what the delta is really about: superb game viewing in beautiful surroundings. Nine tents make up the camp, including a double sized family tent accommodating up to four people. All tents have en-suite bathrooms which are partially open to the elements, adding a wild feel. The tents are shaded by large groves of trees to help keep them cool which is very welcome, especially in the summer months. The large main area of the lodge is a thatched roof, open lounge area furnished with sofas and deep armchairs and housed a small curio shop, the bar and dining area. The campfire is a lovely spot to sit around during the evenings and share tales of a day in the bush, whilst the swimming pool is always popular during the day to escape the afternoon heat. Being on a private concession makes Pom Pom an excellent spot to enjoy game drives both night and day. Mokoro canoe safaris are also offered and there is the opportunity to enjoy fishing trips from the camp as well.

Abu Camp, Okavango Delta
The Abu Camp is found in the Abu Concession of the Okavango Delta, offering guests access to 450,000 acres of pristine wilderness with seasonal floodplains, channels and palm islands all around. With six luxury tents this is a small camp, offering the intimacy and personal service that many visitors crave on safari. The tents are all raised up on wooden decks and are wonderfully comfortable with a classic safari feel. The tree shaded decking areas boast their own plunge pools that look out across a small lagoon which is a magnet for animal and birdlife. En-suite bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers are found at the rear of the tent. The large lounge and dining tent also overlooks the lagoon and has a well-stocked library; a great spot to relax with a book or gaze out to the lagoon for a chance of serendipitous game viewing. The campfire is perfect for guests to congregate before and after dinner to share stories of the day’s adventures under the starry skies. Abu offers a range of activities ranging from game drives to guided walks, boat trips and mokoro canoe safaris, with the time of year dictating which activities are available.
Kwara Camp, Okavango Delta
The iconic Kwara Camp is known as one of the best in Botswana and indeed in Africa for big game viewing attracting visitors from all over the world. With access to a myriad of water ways, as well as huge tracts of dry land, this is a superb all-round camp and ideal for safari enthusiasts and first-time visitors alike. The camp has eight traditionally styled tents, which have been raised up on their own decking areas to afford lovely views out to the nearby lagoon. Thick canvas walls covered by thatched rooves help to keep the tents cool and dry during the summer. The open air, en-suite bathrooms have showers and free-standing baths. The stunning view from the main lodge entices many guests to arrive well before meal times, and linger long afterwards to enjoy the sights and sounds on offer. Pre-dinner drinks around the campfire are a ritual at Kwara and are a great time to share tales of your time in the bush. The location and nearby terrain mean Kwara is ideally suited to both driving and boating safaris, including excursions in traditional mokoro canoes. This camp is very popular so we recommend booking a year in advance.
