Absolute magic, I couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful setting to pop the question. Incredible food, exceptional staff, and the game viewing was five star!

Gunn's camp was our second lodge of our Botswana/Zimbabwe trip. Tents are spacious with a private deck, sitting corner with desk, large double bed, separate toilet, outside shower and bath : pure luxury ! The main area where the meals are served and where the bar is located has a stunning view on the delta. You can stay forever looking at the horizon, listening to the hippos or observing the swallows that abundantly nest in the area. Our activities included boat cruises, nature walk and mokoro trip. Our guide and tracker (Dicks and Edward) were very knowledgeable and did all they could to spot the animals. The sundowners on the boat or on shore are unforgettable; sunsets at the delta produce postcard views. Food is excellent. The staff is super friendly… it's hard not to love this place. Many thanks to Knight (the manager) and his team for an unforgettable delta experience.

We spent a wonderful 2 nights here. From the moment we landed to the moment we left, this place was nothing but outstanding. Dudu and her girls welcoming us on the dock was fantastic. Luckson, Chocs and Ompa were great guides, taking us on boat and mokoro rides and on a walking safari where we saw giraffes, babboons and antelope. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the outdoor showers were fun, and the food was delicious. If you stay here, be sure to take extra money to spend in the well-stocked gift shop. I came home with baskets the ladies there make, pillow shams and t-shirts. Would love to make it back here someday.

We stayed here in late August 2013 for 2 night. This was our 1st stop on our Botswana in Focus safari with Encompass Africa. What great introduction to Africa - on our first night we were woken up at about 2.30am by a huge elephant rummaging just outside our room - very exciting. Loved the Camp and loved the Delta. Rooms were fabulous, staff helpful, guides wonderful and the food really good.

After driving through Botswana in a non-airconditioned bus in 42 degree heat, Nata Lodge was an oasis. It has a lovely pool to relax in, including a mini waterfall! My friend and I opted out of visiting the salt pans just to relax around the gorgeous pool. Later we moved into the lounge area to escape the sun and enjoyed the comfy seating area.
After a dinner at our campsite we returned to sit at the bar and talked to the very friendly locals and tourists who coerced us into drinking the popular concoction Amarula (a little like Baileys, but made from the marula fruit the elephants love so much) before we retired to our tent.

I have been 5 times to sub-Saharan Africa and stayed in many different tented camps, but Pom Pom was by far my best experience. The tents are spacious and have an anteroom with a desk and a sitting area. This helps separating the bedroom from outside and gives insects a lower chance to get inside. On the other hand I must say there were almost no insects. Behind the bedroom there is a spacious bathroom with a separate toilette and there is a wonderful shower outside. The food, at all times of the day is superlative. The game is top notch. We have seen leopards in trees, lions with cubs and the camp organized for us a photo helicopter tour which was the best thing I've ever did. But the best of all are the people working there. From management to guides and all employees they all did their best to make our stay the perfect experience. I enjoyed very much the dinners at the long table with all guests, the management and guides talking about beautiful Botswana and planning the next day.
