Little Vumbura is a beautiful small tented camp situated on a riverine island in a private concession in the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. Access into this area is only by aircraft, and when water levels are high enough guests will be transferred from the airstrip to camp by mokoro and or boat.
Accommodation & Facilities
The six tented rooms are large and comfortably appointed, with an en-suite bathroom with hot and cold running water, shower and flush loo. The dining area and bar is under canvas amongst the trees, but one of the highlights is dinner on the outside dining area, situated on wooden decks built on the floodplain, and under the stars. The camp has a plunge pool for hot afternoons.
Wildlife & Activities
Little Vumbura offers both water and land activities. Mokoros (dug-out canoes) traverse the flood plains under the guidance of experienced polers when the water levels are high enough, and open 4×4 Land Rovers allow guests to get close to animals in the savannah areas, which could include lion, leopard, elephant, sable, giraffe, lechwe and buffalo. Walking safaris with an experienced guide (which must be pre-booked), together with night drives give guests the opportunity to enjoy Africa from a different perspective. For the adventurous, scenic helicopter flights of varying lengths and early morning balloon flights (mid-April to September 30th) can be arranged for an additional fee. These flights provide a spectacular way to see this beautiful wilderness from the air, and please note that they are weather dependent.
