"Wonderful first safari at Pom Pom "
The vehicles were not crowded (often only four guests per vehicle) and on our first game drive in the afternoon/evening we had much to see, including a pride of lions and a pair of buffalo: later that evening, the lions had killed one of the buffalo - quite an introduction. Another high spot was a leopard with her cub with their kill which we were able to see very close up without disturbing them
The guides asked at the outset what were our preferences, and game drives, mokoro trip and boat trips were all superb with explanations and lots of photo opportunities.
Pom Pom camp and the Delta were wonderful." See all these reviews: 6n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
"third and last camp on botswana trip"
Room facilities good. Good wildlife including a freshly killed large kudu being consumed by a pride of 9 lions.
My guide was rather quiet and had to be asked for information but when it came it was very good." See all these reviews: 9n in Botswana
"Pom Pom Camp was our favourite place to stay"
The Pom Pom concession is varied and very beautiful even at the end of the dry season. We loved our Mokoro boat trip - so close to so many beautiful birds - and our young guide was so knowledgeable.
We were taken out on our game drives by Max, an experienced and expert guide who took us to every part of the concession in the 2 days we were there, and found some remarkable wildlife for us including hyena cubs and a pack of wild dogs. All the staff were friendly, warm and welcoming." See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia; 8n in Botswana; 1n in Zimbabwe

"Pompom for game and birds"
The camp managers took good care of visitors, and the staff were always helpful.
Our guide who took us fishing was not familiar with the requirements of anglers using fly, but was ready to learn." See all these reviews: 14n in Botswana
"Pom Pom review"
Good activities and drives although quite quiet when we were there. Macorro boat trips good. Lovely singing and dancing from the staff and great atmosphere at night.
Also rated highly by everyone we met who had been there." See all these reviews: 12n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia
"Pom Pom review"
Wonderful situation on the lagoon. Game drives/walks and mokoro trips all OK, although we both worried that the vehicles went too close to animals sometimes - obviously great for us tourists but surely can't be good for the animals." See all these reviews: 10n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana
"Pom Pom review"
Meticulously clean, no fuss, the ladies worked very hard to produce the finest of meals. The mokoro trip was a pleasant change, peaceful and tranquil. Botswana has produced a high standard of guides through its policy of education and once again great tracking skills in evidence as several leopard were found for those special moments. Good game viewing, but Kwara and Lagoon/Lebala regions were better.
Sometimes taking the chance of travelling 'out of prime game viewing season' pays off- quite literally! The weather was superb, very little rain and temperature between 28 and 35 degrees celsius. No flat open plains for easy game viewing, this was real safari, off road, very private and game tracking at its best. Thankyou, for all the efforts put in to make this one of my greatest adventure yet! Vi ses igen." See all these reviews: 8n in Botswana
"Pom Pom review"
Mokoro trips are possible and enjoyable but here I can relate to a comment I have seen proviously about this camp. We did not find it over obsessed by avoiding danger as suggested but we did not get as much out of the mokoro trip as we would have liked because it is done in convoy. On this occasiion with some tourists who were more interested in having good personal (loud) time than enjoying the peace of the area. We did not see much wildlife I suspect becuse it had been scared off. Allowing boats to take different routes might overcome this.
Andre and Kim who run the Lodge were very helpful to us including rearranging our flight to avoid us waiting at Maun airport to several hours. Our guide was Seretse who was just superb. We got on right from the start and he made our stay very special. This is a great way to either start or end , as in our case, a journey in the Delta."
