We loved Pom Pom! There are many ways your breath is taken away from the start: the bush flight, seeing the tiny "airport," the drive to the camp, the warm welcome with singing, but what really did it for us was walking into the main lodge and seeing the view: STUPENDOUS. It's just. so. gorgeous! The main lodge is a beautiful crescent shaped open structure that embraces a bonfire area, which is lit at night. It's right on the water, and you hear hippos telling each other jokes and laughing, and frogs, and birds. You watch sweet little bushbucks nibbling on the grass and nonchalantly walk through the lodge to the other side. Monkeys fly through the trees and occasionally steal banana bread from the buffet.
Frank and Andy and the staff are so welcoming and friendly and at your service. Our guide, Max, and tracker, Lake, were spectacular and finding the game we desired to see: elephant, leopard, lion, giraffe, more impala than you can count... the game drives are amazing and will leave you desiring a visit with your chiropractor when you get home. Gorgeous sundowners out in the bush with a bit of a nibble and beverage.
The food at Pom Pom was amazingly good. Taken at one big table, all the guests (30 max, I think) dine together, along with a guide or two, and maybe a staff member. We're drawn to the table by a bit of a drumming, then presented our menu and wine. Everything is wonderful. (It's great fun to try all the different types of venison: kudu and warthog and so many other tasty bits!)
The rooms are wonderful. Well, they're tents, really. Each has a private deck with a view of the delta. We had the one family tent, which has a second (huge!) bedroom ideal for our kids (ages 8 and 11). The shower is outdoors and wonderfully strong and hot. My brother and his wife enjoyed tent #9, which is a bit of a hike from the main lodge but is the honeymoon tent with a gorgeous outdoor tub for a relaxing soak.
We all agreed that we would absolutely return to Pom Pom. We spent three nights there and loved every second of our stay.
