This little gem must surely be one of the most intimate and exclusive camps anywhere in Africa. Shaded by a canopy of ancient trees, it is situated on its own private island and is accessible only by boat. With only six tents (one of them a family suite) you can be assured of personal service and attention, although it is of a more relaxed style. The atmosphere here is almost that of a beach lodge on the east coast! A plunge pool, reading area and star deck all lead out from the dining room in the main guest area.
The style of safari here is slightly more adventurous than at Vumbura Plains and there is perhaps more of an emphasis on the wet activities, owing to the camp’s watery location. Little Vumbura offers a good mix of wet and dry activities though and the game viewing is very consistent throughout the year. Day and night drives, walking safaris, makoros and boating safaris are all possible, as well as fishing in season.
Little Vumbura presents a great alternative for those not wanting to splash out on the uber-luxury of big sister, Vumbura Plains. For a much lower cost you can still enjoy the same incredible game viewing and activities. This makes it a firm favourite of ours and possibly the best camp in the Okavango Delta in terms of quality and value combined! It also makes for a great combination with DumaTau and Chitabe which will allow you to experience different habitats during your safari.
