The area is known for its large concentrations of wildlife which thrive on the Gomoti plains and waterways. This exclusive area has been a well-kept secret for many years. The Gomoti region has been the local haunt of many of the older guides and Okavango dwellers who refer to it in nostalgic terms when they used to camp along this river system.

Built in a similar style to their signature Machaba Luxury tents, the Gomoti Plains tents and main area are slightly raised on wooden decks overlooking the Gomoti river system.

This wild and pristine area has over the years produced some phenomenal wildlife encounters including the filming and studying of the African wild dog packs which inhabit this area.

Just 18 km south of Chitabe Camp, Gomoti Plains Camp is waiting to spoil you and your guests with its classical comfort and amazing wildlife. Travel the waterways by motor boat and mekoro and traverse the Gomoti plains enthralling in the dense wildlife concentrations of the Gomoti area.

Accommodation:

Ten luxury safari tents, two of which are family units. These large tents are raised on wooden decks as are the main areas of the lodge. The tents are decorated in a classic safari style incorporating the land and water of the Okavango delta which make up this beautiful land. Luxurious, comfortable, classic. All eight double tents take two guests and the two family rooms can hold four guests. All rooms have hot and cold running water, inside and outside showers, flush toilets and twin his and her basins. Electricity in the tents is reserved for lighting and charging of batteries, computers.

Food and Dining:

The food served at camp is a wonderful mixture of local cuisine flavoured and cooked in good old fashion home style cooking. We call this bushfare. Our chefs come from Botswana and have many years working in the tourism industry preparing fine meals. We try and eat under the stars at night and vary our dining experiences with every meal.

Activities at Gomoti Plains:

* Game drives are conducted in the mornings and afternoon/evenings at camp. They usually last about three hours each and are conducted along the river systems and flood plains around the camp. The wildlife in the area is prolific and chances are good to see some of the larger predators, herds of elephant and buffalo and all the plains animals that occur here. Night drives are conducted in the early evening offering one a chance to see the smaller more nocturnal animals with spotlights.
* Walking safaris are also conducted generally in the morning with armed guides. The walks are leisurely and time is taken to observe the smaller things in the bush that one normally misses when driving. Walking is weather dependent, or dependent on the condition of the terrain.
* Mekoro safari - This is a dug out canoe poled by an experienced poler in the shallower waters of the Okavango. It is a great way to see the waterways and is tranquil and quiet. These excursions take place in the mornings or longer day trips can be arranged. Explore the islands around camp and come back rested and rejuvenated.
