Dallas, Texas9 contributions
Our three days at Gomoti Plains Camp were the most wonderful, exhilarating, and fantastic game viewing experience you could ever imagine. Our Driver, Oracle, was such a wonderful person and a fantastic driver and guide. Our first drive set the tone for the entire time with him. In that five-hour period, we saw more animals than we saw in 10 other game drives at our other camps combined. Five male lions, three of which were eating a recently killed cape buffalo, elephants crossing the delta, herds of buffalo, zebra, and impalas, bushbuck, red lechwe, hippo’s, crocodiles, giraffes, baboons, warthogs, honey badgers and countless bird sightings. Literally every time he mentioned that we should start to drive back to camp, another amazing sighting would appear before us. The camp itself is more rustic style located on the banks of the Gomoti river. Our tent (number 4) was perfectly located looking out over the river. We did not have to leave our tent to experience the wildlife. It was around us 24 hours a day. Food was fantastic and the staff was warm and welcoming, especially Sego (a do it all manager of the camp). We had an unfortunate situation happened upon arrival at the camp that we believe that the management team and the Gomoti ownership should have handled differently, but it did not takeaway from the incredible game viewing experience we had with Oracle. If you want an incredible location game viewing, this is the place.

We visited three camps in Botswana and Gomoti Plains was our favorite. The setting is beautiful, the activities are varied (game drives, mokoro canoeing, motorboat and helicopter ride (buy this separately-- it is WORTH IT). The staff is friendly and the food is outstanding. The room itself was so well set up and the shower had good pressure. Best of all, our guide there, **Oracle Oratile** was exceptional. He was patient with questions, extremely knowledgeable and has an incredible ability to find the lions and predict elephant and other animals behaviors. It was very special. I can highly highly recommend! One more note: wifi is not so good but you'll be having so much fun, you will not even miss it!

Dear Jenn B, This is amazing feedback, thank you for taking the time to let us know that Gomoti Plains was your favorite camp of the three camps you stayed at in Botswana! We are thrilled that everything from the activities to the staff, to the rooms were outstanding and thank you for your detailed review. Your special mention of Oracle is appreciated, it sounds like his passion for the Delta shone through. We are so pleased that you were having so much fun at Gomoti Plains that the Wi-Fi was not missed. Machaba Safaris made the decision to deliberately limit the Wi-Fi throughout our camps to encourage guests to focus on their safari experiences. We hope to see you back at Gomoti Plains or one of our other Machaba Safaris camps in the near future.

We actually didn't realize that this was a private camp so our party of four had two lux tents and the staff all to ourselves. I personally prefer a more communal situation but this was a treat that I'll probably never experience again. Wonderful, responsive staff, super comfy accommodations, excellent food made by Chef Woodie, fabulous game drives by Eliot, and an incredible part of the south delta off our private deck.

This camp was fun as lots of animals roam freely through it at all hours of the day, so caution is a necessity. The food was excellent, the guide knowledgeable (especially the guide who helped with the walking safari). Customer service was not quite at the level of other camps we visited. It was not always easy to find someone when you needed assistance.

The staff at the camp are so kind and the service is impeccable. We cannot thank everyone at gomoti enough for an amazing honeymoon. The food quality is SO good, and they make sure to keep your drinks filled as well. HIGHLY recommend. We saw cheetah and tons of lions. No leopard (but heard they saw them the day we left), but that’s fine with me because at least we saw the cheetah! Only recommendation I’d have is for the rooms to have space heaters as we had a random cold front come in. Other than that the rooms are super nice and such an amazing experience. Oracle was our guide and he was super knowledgeable and was a great time!
