About Gomoti Plains Camp

The Gomoti Plains Camp is situated in a unique community-run concession in the southeastern part of the Okavango Delta, near the Gomoti River system. The Gomoti tree, also known as the water fig, is a small tree that grows along the waterways in the delta and provides excellent cover for nesting water birds such as herons and storks. This area is renowned for its large concentration of wildlife, which thrive on the Gomoti plains and waterways. The camp is a well-kept secret that has been the local haunt of many experienced guides and Okavango dwellers who recall camping along this river system with great nostalgia.

The camp itself features ten luxury tents, including two luxury family tents and eight luxury double tents, all equipped with en-suite bathroom facilities. The tents are designed to blend in with the natural surroundings and provide a comfortable and stylish base from which to explore the area. In addition to day and night game drives in 4WD vehicles, guests can also enjoy water-based activities such as mokoro excursions and motorboat trips.

Mokoro Safari Explore the tranquil waterways of the Okavango Delta in a dugout canoe, poled by an experienced guide. These excursions take place in the morning or for longer day trips, and offer a peaceful and relaxing way to see the delta’s unique water-based ecosystem. Glide through the channels and explore the islands around camp, taking in the sights and sounds of the delta’s diverse wildlife.

Game drive Game drives are conducted in the mornings and afternoons/evenings at camp, lasting around three hours each. With the help of experienced guides, guests can explore the river systems and flood plains around the camp, and encounter some of the delta’s most iconic wildlife, including predators such as lions, herds of elephants and buffalo, and a range of plains animals. Night drives offer the opportunity to see smaller, more nocturnal creatures with the help of spotlights.

Walking safari Walking safaris are conducted in the mornings with armed guides, providing an up-close and personal experience of the bush. Take a leisurely stroll through the terrain, observing the smaller details that are often missed on a game drive. The walks are weather-dependent, and the guides will tailor the route according to the conditions and the interests of the group.
