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

Breathtaking views are what you can expect from nearly every angle at Vumbura Plains Camp: raised above the Okavango Delta floodplains, its lounge, dining area and bar flow out onto a wooden deck where you’ll find a swimming pool and plenty of comfortable chairs. The camp’s fire pit is a popular meeting place in the evenings, and meals are served in the main dining area or outside under the stars. Guests can choose to have their supper in the privacy of their suite, and the camp offers the services of a professional masseuse and beauty therapist for a bit of safari pampering.

Activities at Vumbura Plains Camp

  • Morning & Afternoon Game Drives
  • 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.

Reviews

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver. She responded to our requests promptly and gave us several options with links to each option; we ultimately chose Lukimbi. She then coordinated our flights to and from the property, arranged the drivers necessary to get us from the airport to the lodge and back again, and sent the appropriate paperwork to each of us to verify each step of the process. We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

They kept us fully informed and updated throughout planning, travel, etc.

It was excellent all around. Everything worked out well. An experience of a lifetime! The game viewing rides were fun and very informative.

Excellent service and support for our Africa vacation

Working with Walter was a great experience. He listened to us and helped us build a vacation that exceeded all of our expectations. We really appreciated his professionalism and attention to detail.

Dan
Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional.  Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Above expectations

Excellent communications and service. We dealt with Sabrina and she is awesome. The safari tour was amazing, i can highly recommend going to Elephant Plains. Its a very special place run by awesome people.

Werner
A great tour operator that was a pleasure to deal with.

We used Safari Online to put together a mid-range Botswana trip for a group of four going to three different camps and then onto Vic Falls. We asked several operators to provide options (through this great safari bookings website) and Walter Kohrs from Safari Online was easily the most responsive and quickest to provide different but realistic options and at good prices. In the end it was a no brainer to go with Safari Online. Walter always responded to my queries quickly, with honest and valuable responses that were clear and made sense. From our perspective he tailored a good mix of places for both our budget and standard of facilities that suited us perfectly, with enough information and links to help us make our decisions. In the end each camp was different and had different aspects and strengths that made each unique. We loved it.

Shane
Perfect

We are six older but experienced travellers who usually do our own planning. Luck led us to Safari Online and Walter. His ideas proved spot on. Throughout our planning Safari Online have been helpful, always answering emailed questions, no matter how basic, straightaway. We’ve had probably our best ever holiday in years of travel, everything went smoothly. Pickups and transfers were on time. Staff in all the places we stayed were friendly and helpful. I can’t think of one adverse remark except maybe seeing a lion that wasn’t asleep, though I think if it could have been arranged Walter would have done so.
