Pom Pom is a very cool traditional safari camp located in the south part of the Nxabega Concession. It is a mid-level camp by design replicated that safari camp style of yesteryear. The levels of service are still very high as is the guiding and general operation of this camp.
The main guest area is surprisingly large and open with a Swimming pool leading off from the back entrance to the camp and of a good size. There are 9 guest tents all overlooking the watery plains and are regularly visited by multiple species of wildlife. As you’d expect with this more traditional style of safari camp, the rooms focus less on opulent luxury but remain very comfortable and full of character.
The game viewing is very good most of the year with a really good range of activities on offer. Mokoro boat safaris work really very well here and an unusually high rate of big game viewing success from the boats is generally achieved.
Pom Pom works best when combined with other similar mid-range camps when trying to keep an eye on costs for a longer Botswana safari trip. Since the wet safari experience here are so good, combining it with a dry camp where vehicle and walking safaris are the dominant activity is the best way to maximize the experience at Pom Pom.
