The contemporary, clean-lined design of this luxurious retreat appeals on arrival but Vumbura Plains Camp sits in prime big game country, enjoying a private setting and offering one of the widest ranges of activities in the Okavango Delta. Game viewing by 4X4 and on foot is balanced by water-based safaris in canoes and motor boats; night drives and visits to a local delta community complete the well-rounded experience.

Vumbura Plains sits in the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta and features two separate seven-tent camps: Vumbura North Camp is more suitable for families with older children and groups while Vumbura South Camp is better for honeymooners and privacy-seeking couples. Each tented suite is generously proportioned and its expansive deck, complete with outdoor lounge and dining area as well as private plunge pool and shower, is a real highlight.

The camp has a reputation for predator sightings, thanks to its position in a region of permanent water and grazing. Lions are often seen, and the flat landscape suits hunters such as cheetah and wild dog. Bird watching is also a highlight at Vumbura Plains, especially in the summer when many migrant species arrive. Combine Vumbura Plains with a lodge in the Kalahari for the quintessential desert and delta experience.

Lodge Highlights:

  • Water & land-based game viewing
  • Two ‘themed’ & separate camps
  • Luxurious suites with private plunge pool
  • Famous area for predator sightings

Activities at Vumbura Plains Camp

  • Mokoro (Canoe) Excursions
  • Boating & Fishing (Seasonal)
  • Night Drives & Guided Walks
  • Cultural Interactions
  • Bird Watching

A private setting in a game-rich region of the Okavango Delta gives Vumbura Plains Camp a distinct advantage over other camps when it comes to game viewing. Night drives are offered along with morning and afternoon drives, guided walks are permitted, and the camp’s location near permanent water means it is able to offer both land and water-based game viewing, affording a very diverse and rewarding safari experience.

The area has a reputation for predators with lions and hyenas among the most commonly seen. Thick forests hide leopards while open-plain hunters such as wild dog and cheetah are seen here more than they are in other areas of the delta. Large numbers of elephant, buffalo and antelope species can be seen all year round and the bird watching is excellent. A visit to a local village for a cultural insight into delta life completes the full list of activities.
