Dombo Hippo Pools

Lake in Moremi Game Reserve

The drive between North Gate (including Khwai) and Xakanaxa Lediba follows one of Botswana’s more scenic tracks, although the exact route changes with the years, depending on flood levels. A worthwhile stop en route, Dombo Hippo Pool (about 14km southwest of North Gate) is where hippos crowd along the shore. Their shenanigans can be enjoyed in relative safety from an elevated observation post.
