Gomoti Plains Camp
Gomoti Plains is a luxury tented camp on the far eastern waterways of the Okavango Delta. The water figs occupy the riverbanks and provide a home to nesting water birds, while stylish tents invite guests to relax on nature’s doorstep in comfort.
Gomoti Plains Introduction
The Gomoti River System is said to be treasured by the original inhabitants of the Okavango Delta as an area of supreme natural beauty and abundance of wildlife. The gomoti tree is the English “water fig” and it is the tree that lines the river in between each of the 10 luxury tented suites. Each en suite bedroom is designed to reflect the organic colours and textures of the land and water of the Okavango Delta and is elevated with bold-patterned scatter cushions and rugs, and intricately woven light shades. Each room is raised on a wooden deck and overlooks the lush river system.
- 10 Large, luxury safari tents: eight doubles, two family, all en suite with private viewing decks and indoor and outdoor showers.
- A main tented guest area with beautifully furnished lounge, dining room, and bar, plus an open-air fire pit encircled by comfortable chairs for after-dinner star gazing around the fire.
- Meal times are a delight with freshly baked buns and quiches, and three-course menus in the evening served in the tented dining room or at a table in the bush surrounded by lanterns.
- There is a swimming pool overlooking the watery view (complete with wandering wildlife), a curio shop for some safari purchases, a library, and a massage therapist.
Gomoti Plains Game Viewing and Activities
The Okavango Delta is a haven for Botswana’s wildlife, and is indeed one of the most celebrated safari regions of southern Africa because of its unique wetland ecosystems. Wildlife sightings include all of the well known favourites, plus some of the uniquely adapted species, such as red lechwe. Birdlife is particularly well documented in the area, with water birds like herons, storks, kingfishers, jacanas, crakes, and pygmy geese featuring heavily. Exploring is done by game drive, motorised boat, mokoro, or on foot. Each offers a different way to enjoy the natural landscape and its inhabitants. Afternoon game drives morph into night drives, bringing the nocturnal creatures to the spotlight, and mornings can be spent walking in the footsteps of your local guide or cruising through the channels on a traditional dugout canoe.
