Vumbura Plains Camp is a luxurious tented camp situated in a private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve in the extreme north of the Okavango Delta. Shaded by indigenous trees and raised on wooden platforms to allow for magnificent views of the delta landscape, Vumbura Plains Camp is a beautifully crafted and tastefully decorated destination that makes for an unforgettable safari. An area of highly diverse habitats, the concession hosts a correspondingly extensive array of wildlife and game viewing activities. You could explore the winding waterways on canoe or motorboat safaris or head out on day and night 4X4 game drives - lion, leopard, elephant, cheetah and buffalo are commonly spotted in the area. Exciting guided walking safaris are also offered at Vumbura. But you don't have to do a thing: for a private and relaxing day at Vumbura Plains Camp, you can simply cool off in your own private plunge pool and watch passing animals from the privacy of your own deck.
Vumbura Plains Camp comprises two separate seven-roomed satellite camps, each with its own raised dining, lounge and bar area tucked beneath a canopy of cool, shady, indigenous trees . Magnificent vistas across the Okavango Delta floodplains are a feature. A star-gazing deck with comfortable cushions protrudes into the floodplain, a place to gaze upwards, or a convivial camp fire setting. Vumbura Plains Camp is unlike any safari camp you will have seen before. Each large, luxurious room is raised off the ground on wooden decks and each comprises a bedroom, lounge, shower and full en-suite bathroom. Outdoor showers are standard. It is open on three sides, and the billowing curtains between the various areas create the sense of a yacht floating through the floodplains. Each room also has a plunge pool and 'sala' - a comfortable area to lie and relax, watching the waving grasses of the floodplain.
Vumbura Plains Camp offers both land and water activities, principally nature viewing in varied habitats in open 4x4 vehicles, nature walks, mokoro trips and boat excursions. Whilst exploring the spectacular ecology of this area, one can enjoy close-up viewing of lion, leopard, elephant, cheetah and buffalo along with all the plains game. Birding around Vumbura Plains Camp is incredible - with both variety and prolific numbers. The Vumbura area is possibly the only area in the Okavango Delta where one can see red lechwe (an animal that inhabits the fringes of the waterways) and sable antelope (an animal that prefers the dry countryside) on the same game drive.
