This was an amazing 4 day experience we will never forget. The twice a day safari drives (early morning and late evening) out among the termite "islands" on the Delta were the highlight. Our guide, Ryder, and our tracker, Iba, are truly the best. They are both very knowledgeable--following and teaching us important conservation practices to preserve this beautiful part of the world. We tracked and saw the Big 5, elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards, and cape buffalo. One of our favorite evening experiences was spending time among a pride of 19 lions--lionesses, cubs, and "teenagers." We also saw wildebeasts, hippos, kudus, hyenas, zebras, giraffes, wild dogs, wart hogs, crocodiles, eagles, storks, vultures, beautiful birds, and lots of impalas. The sunrises and sunsets each day were exquisite. The ride in the mokoro canoe took us back in time. Our guides poled the mokoro through the papyrus and other water plants as people have done for centuries here. We loved glamping. Our personalized tenting accommodations blended with the tranquil environment of the Okavango Delta. The meals served in the commons area were superb with a view of the animals (usually kudu and elepants) as we enjoyed meals together with other guests. All of the members of the camp staff did an outstanding job seeing to our needs. We were truly off the grid--arriving and leaving on a gravel runway in a small bush plane. There was no cell phone service, internet, or TV. We loved the serenity and tranqulity we experienced here among nature

Managers, Phat and his wife and their team, helped my friend Kay, and I to have a wonderful African holiday in the Delta area, last September 2019. Our guide and driver were friendly and competent over the few days we stayed. They were terrific people to met. They found the big five over the three night stay. We enjoyed the style of glam canvas tent, bungalow accommodation, being less bling but comfortable and clean and well serviced. Both the main communal area and bungalow, had terrific African views. We even had an elephant visit our verandah and wander by. The night noises were real but we felt very very safe at the camp. The meals were good and efficient service. We did swim in the pool but had to watch out for the monkey visitors helping themselves to our gear if left out. There was a firepit but we were usually so tired from the safaris that it was not used by us. There was also a communal bar area for use. We both totally would recommend this camp and are hoping our husbands and extended families can visit here in the future. From the welcome song to the farewell at the light plane strip, it was so truly worth the effort to get there.

A real safari experience, the big 5 can be found also tracked a pack of wild dogs and one amazing sight was a herd of buffalo coming across the horizon. The guides Major and Sunday were amazing at tracking and great fun, the sunset safaris were unbelievable especially accompanied by wine and gin and tonic. Back at the camp always greeted by warm towels and a drink the food was lovely and staff very friendly and efficient. The tents were comfortable and having a shower under the trees great fun. Having your Clothes washed for you at no charge was greatly appreciated. Despite a drought we were still taken on great game drives although a short Mokoro trip was cut even shorter by a hippo! Can recommend to anyone wanting a proper safari much better than game parks such as Kruger.

In here we had completed our Big 5. We even saw a pack of African wilddog which is reported as endangered species. The tracker and hunter are amazing. Without them, we won't be able or learn to track down the animals. Imagine we sighted leopard at every game activity. It was an educational tour where we learnt more about their natural calls and habitats. The stay was as equally amazing with a Nat Geo Wild view right in front of our tent. The stay was a luxury and comfortable. Food and drinks were delicious and yummy. Tummy is full plus free flow of alcohol and wine. The staff were friendly and their services were top notch. Making our stay pleasant and comfortable.

I had visited the camp last year and although the game viewing then was good, there was a lot to desired in the presentation and service in the camp. I, however, decided to accompany my friend to the camp again only to be delighted to find husband, Phat and wife, W team, from last years excellent Kwando Lagoon camp, had moved on to Pom Pom. It was immediatly apparent change for the better had occurred. Spic and span with some much needed changes ie extra lighting over the eating area, where we ate in stygian gloom the previous year, decking for the plunge pool and enormous shower heads in the bathroom with pumped water pressure. Changes were still afoot - better tent lighting was needed but I'm sure its all in place now led by the very professional team. As for game... well wild dogs galore! Pom Pom does very well on the game front. It was very dry with bush fires with the remaining pools drying out - unhappy hippos but delighted maribou storks picking up the catfish struggling in the last water. A good visit
