Gomoti Plains Camp
Gomoti Plains Camp is situated in an exclusive community-run private concession on the edge of the Gomoti river system in the south east of the Okavango Delta. This stylish luxury tented camp, set under the shade of acacia trees, promises wild and pristine game viewing, both on land and on water.
Gomoti Plains Camp is made up of 10 luxury tents, including two designed for families. The expansive tents, which are raised on wooden decks and are similar in style to those at the sister camps of Machaba and Little Machaba, blend into the environment perfectly. Shady verandas offer wonderful views of the floodplains and en-suite bathrooms have both indoor and outdoor showers. The two family units comprise two spacious bedrooms with an adjoining living room in between and a shared bathroom.
The design throughout Gomoti Plains Camp is one of classic luxury with splashes of colour. Design pieces, from light shades to coffee stands all add to the style and give it a contemporary flair. This follows through into the shared space which includes a beautifully furnished large mess tent, housing the dining area and lounge, a perfect spot to relax, in between morning and afternoon activities. Adjacent to the main mess tent, you’ll find a lovely riverside swimming pool, and there is also a library, spa and curio shop.
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 camp fire while sharing stories with their fellow guests and guides. The food is a wonderful mixture of home-cooked bush fare with a modern twist. Whenever possible, dinner is served outside under the stars, and the dining experience varies with every meal.
Activities at Gomoti Plains Camp include safaris by motorboat as well as mokoro trips on the nearby waterways, walking safaris, and day and night game drives. The Gomoti area is known for the concentrations of wildlife that thrive here, and this exclusive area has been a well-kept secret for years – the haunt of many guides and Okavango residents, who talk with nostalgia of the days when they used to camp along this river. Over the years this wild and pristine area has produced some phenomenal wildlife encounters, and the packs of African wild dog that inhabit it have been extensively studied and filmed.
