      Vumbura Plains

      The Entire Delta in One Camp

      Vumbura Plains Camp is a premiere luxury camp situated in a private concession of the Kwedi Reserve, located in the extreme north of the Okavango Delta. The concession includes a wide variety of habitats, diverse wildlife and an enormous traversing area of approximately 150,000 acres. Vumbura Plains Camp encompasses such a wide variety of habitats and species that guests can see just about every animal that occurs in the Okavango Delta biome. Vumbura Plains Camp comprises two separate seven-room satellite camps, each with its own raised dining, lounge and bar area tucked beneath a canopy of cool, shady, indigenous trees. By day enjoy magnificent vistas across the Okavango Delta floodplains. At night, a star-gazing deck with comfortable cushions protrudes into the floodplain, providing a place to gaze upwards or relax with fellow travelers in a convivial camp fire setting. This camp is unlike any safari camp you 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. Both land and water activities are on offer and included with the accommodation. Guests can enjoy nature viewing in varied habitats in open 4x4 vehicles for day and night game drives, nature walks, mokoro (canoe) trips and boat excursions. While exploring the spectacular ecology of this area, one can enjoy close-up viewing of lions, leopards, elephants, cheetahs and buffalo along with all the plains game. The Vumbura area is possibly the only area in the Okavango Delta where one can see a red lechwe, which inhabits the fringes of the waterways, and sable antelope, which prefers the dry countryside, on the same game drive. Birding around Vumbura Plains Camp is also incredible - with both variety and prolific numbers.

        Six Countries Summer Special

        Available

        01 Nov 14 - 31 Mar 15

        Ever increasing in popularity, the summer months in Southern Africa (November – March) offer a different safari experience as short showers green the dry grasslands and clean the bright blue skies. Photographers delight in the clear light, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and rare bird sightings. Because the resident wildlife disperses to many abundant water sources, you may have to work a bit harder to see the animals, but you will have the added benefit of seeing many babies who arrive at this time of year. read more

        In national parks and some other reserves, rules prohibit leaving the designated safari paths. But the wildlife are not always considerate enough to stay nearby. Get better vantages (and better photos) by heading off-road.
