Gomoti Plains

The classic tented Gomoti Plains Camp deep in the Delta

The beautiful Gomoti River system is the scenic setting for a classic tented camp deep in the heart of the famous Okavango Delta in Botswana, offering truly one of the best combinations of land and water-based game viewing in the wilderness!

What’s more, Gomoti Plains is acclaimed for its eco-conscious features and commitment to an ecotourism ethos that permeates everything it does in terms of game viewing and treating guests to five-star comforts. Gomoti Plains will always be that classic luxury camp under canvas that provides a modern refuge in nature.

So, nothing is left out – gorgeous, tented suites with cooling plunge pools, but no aircon, lovely decks with plenty of space and light, and the use of solar energy and batteries instead of electricity and fuel. Bio plants manage all the solid waste and the camp is not permanent which means that if it ever moves or closes, the vegetation will come back within a year or two. 

The location for the Gomoti Plains camp is a community run concession in the Okavango, aptly named after the Gomoti tree, or water fig, that grows beside the many waterways in the Delta. Find a rich diversity of species in this habitat, in large herds such as buffalo, or alone, such as the solitary leopard. Birds nest in these delightful trees and animals shelter in their branches and roots in an ancient ecosystem. 

Keeping it simple and serene, Gomoti Plains is small, accommodating only 20 people in 8 tasteful tented suites, including two family suites. Picture modern bathrooms with showers outside, private decks and soft beds, all built to have minimal impacts on the ecology around them. Earthy décor reflects the watery environment and plains in this Okavango setting so guests feel immersed in the nature they chose for their Botswana vacation.

We love the eco-friendly kitchen where nothing goes to waste and energy is saved, the dazzling plunge pool, the Wi-Fi area, the spa therapy on your own deck, the attention to detail in the library, lounges and dining areas, all open plan and sunny. 

Pro game rangers take guests out to find the wildlife on boats and mokoros, 4×4 vehicles and on foot for a diverse and enchanting safari in a classic camp. Children will revel in the sounds, sights and fun nature-based activities at the camp too. 

Guides have found wild dog dens here, healthy prides of lions and robust herds of buffalo and antelope, as well as sneaky leopards and cheetahs in family groups – so the choice is yours: come and visit Gomoti Plains camp for the Okavango safari of a lifetime! We have the packages for your family or couple holiday and we can recommend a few extra days in Chobe or over the border in Vic Falls too!

Overview

Find this world class eco accommodation overlooking the game rich and scenically beautiful Gomoti River system. Gomoti Plains takes its name from this river and the trees that grow along its banks, a classic luxury camp under canvas but keeping its modern style.

Ecotourism principles in this community run concession ensure that the local people benefit too so your wildlife enjoyment is their livelihood in a world of extraordinary fauna and flora.  The Okavango Delta is also an acclaimed World Heritage Site thanks to its environmental value as a biodiversity hotspot and water resource.  

Game rangers and rackers come from the local villages and are the ears and eyes for your exhilarating wildlife findings – see more animals than you thought possible in one game drive such as lions on a kill, elephants crossing the delta, herds of buffalo, zebra, and impalas, bushbuck, red lechwe, hippo’s, crocodiles, giraffes, baboons, warthogs, honey badgers and countless bird species. It’s like your own movie and you are the main celebrity!

The camp itself is a more rustic style, located on the banks of the Gomoti River and tented suites make the most of this setting and outlook across the plains. No one has to leave their tents to experience the wildlife because it is there, in the camp, 24 hours a day. In addition, the food is so fantastic and the staff are so warm and welcoming, that this is indeed a once in lifetime trip. Tents have showers, decks, soft spacious beds and wonderful seating areas and everything runs on solar power, the kitchen also recycling all wastes into a useful system. 

Settle into open areas for lounging and dining, a clear splash pool and sun deck with perfectly created wooden boardwalks meandering everywhere, linking the pool to the lounges, and then the plains beckon behind the camp which has river views. Everything is decorated in soft natural colours, paying homage to the land around the camp, the open golden plains and the blue and green watery ecosystems. 

Go to Gomoti Plains out of season and get the entire camp to yourselves – see the Big 5 especially elephants, lions and buffalo, and giraffes and zebra are there all the time.
