Ideally set in a cool sheltered spot beneath a canopy of mature acacia trees, Gomoti Plains Camp is situated on the edge of the Gomoti River system and floodplains in the centre of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. Gomoti Plains is made up of eight classic safari tents and two family tents. Each tent is tastefully furnished with safari-style décor and is equipped with stunning teak chairs and a wardrobe. All raised on wooden decks, the tents boast great views of the floodplains beyond, and each room has a shaded veranda. The two family units comprise two spacious bedrooms with an adjoining living room in between. Behind the living area is a shared bathroom with an indoor and outdoor shower with hot and cold running water, flush loos and twin basins.
Nestled into evergreen riparian woodland, the main area includes a beautifully outfitted large mess tent full of colour and style, housing the dining area and lounge, a perfect spot to relax in between morning and afternoon activities. 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 campfire to share stories with their fellow travellers and guides. Typically, dining takes place outside either under the shade or under the stars. The food served is an excellent mixture of local cuisine flavoured and good old-fashioned home-style cooking. Game drives take you along the river system and floodplains, or you can choose to take to the water in a mekoro canoe. Glide along the tranquil waterways and enjoy the Delta and its wildlife from a different angle, a wonderful tranquil way to explore the waterways.
