Little Vumbura CampAugust 17, 2021
Marvel at a wealth of wildlife including opportunities to see ‘leaping lions’ jumping channels in pursuit of prey at Vumbura Plains Camp. Scan the floodplains for the vast array of predators: lion prides; African wild dogs ; numerous leopards & occasional cheetahs.
This is without doubt one of Botswana’s most luxurious properties, comprising two satellite camps of seven suites each. Each sumptuous suite showcases an airy, contemporary and minimalistic design which is open to the Okavango Delta on three sides. Your own private plunge pool and sala enjoy magnificent views over the Delta and allow you to enjoy massages and outdoor siestas during the heat of the day.
The concession on which the camp is situated must surely be one of our favourite areas anywhere in Africa. It is a wonderfully healthy ecosystem and you can even drink the water straight from the swamp itself! The unique combination of habitats here means that almost every species to be found in the Delta can be seen here. For instance, it is the only place in the world where sable antelope and red lechwe may be found together. The predator viewing can be fantastic with lion, leopard, wild dog, cheetah and hyena all making regular appearances. The larger iconic species such as elephant, buffalo, hippo, giraffe and zebra are also present in good numbers. This is all rounded off with an exceptionally diverse range of birds to keep anyone delighted.
Another product of this unique combination of habitats is the ideal mix of 30% wet and 70% dry activities. The dry activities will allow you to cover more ground in your search for big game whilst the wet activities will allow you to experience the beauty of the classic Okavango habitats. Day and night drives, walking safaris, boating and makoros are all possible here.
In short, this camp really does have it all! We highly recommend it.
Vumbura Plains is an artful, contemporary balance of wood, glass, and canvas, reflecting the colours of the Delta. Its 14 spacious suites include indoor and outdoor showers, an en-suite bathroom, private plunge pool, and outdoor 'sala’ from where you can view the never-ending wildlife parade.
There are six twin bedded tents. The single beds can be pushed together to make a double bed.
There are two family tents each accommodating four guests comprising two bedrooms each with own bathroom facilities. The main adult room has a large sunken lounge and spacious showers whilst the second child’s room is smaller and has standard facilities.
