Okavango Delta, Botswana
Little Vumbura is situated on an island in a private reserve bordering the Moremi Game Reserve in the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta. Attractive palms shading the camp lend the environs a relaxed, tropical feel and often entice elephants onto the island.
The camp provides accommodation in six spacious tents, each with en-suite facilities. The dining room and pub, under canvas, are built in and around the existing trees, for a unique setting in harmony with the environment. Other attractions include a refreshing pool and an outdoor dining area built on wooden decks over the floodplains, making dinners under the stars an amazing experience.
Little Vumbura offers both water and land activities, as the area boasts scenic waterways and is also close to the Okavango's outermost open savannahs. The water levels around the camp change each year depending on the level of the annual floods from central Africa, and will determine what wildlife is in the region at a given time. The variety of wildlife here is always stunning, however. Along with the many predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dog, Little Vumbura is home to other wetland and savannah species such as red lechwe, waterbuck, sable, kudu, wildebeest and tsessebe, as well as hippo and crocodile. Guests who enjoy birding will love the combination of acacia and dry woodland species. Little Vumbura offers mokoro (dugout canoe) excursions, walks, boating and game drives. Night drives are possible nearly all year, but may be restricted for a few months if extremely high flood levels occur.
