Little Vumbura

Feefo logo


This intimate camp of just six tents is located on a forested island amid the sky-blue waterways in the northern reaches of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. The focus of this exclusive camp is water-based activities, with ample opportunities for guests to explore open woodlands and floodplains on 4x4 game drives. Shaded by the canopy of an ancient Delta forest and bordering the Moremi Game Reserve, this lush area is renowned for its large populations of sable antelope and buffalo as well as predators, like leopard, lion and graceful African wild dogs. Little Vumbura is ideal for those seeking a more intimate and personalised safari experience.

Arriving by boat, you are immediately made to feel welcome and an integral part of the close-knit safari family. After lunch at the alfresco dining area with breathtaking views of the Delta, hop into a mokoro (dug-out canoe) for your first introduction to self-navigation of the Delta’s reed-lined waterways to spot sable antelope and tiny marbled reed frogs.

With your knowledgeable guide again leading the way you take a walk on a nearby island and discover the unique ecology of the floodplains. Litle Vumbura also offers a hot-air balloon safari at an additional cost allowing you to experience the Delta's landscapes from above.

Standard Twin Tent

The six well-appointed en suite tents have a bedroom and adjoining lounge with armchairs, a desk and storage space. At the foot of the bed is a sliding door leading out onto the outside area, where there is a comfortable seating area and a shower, both providing forever Delta vistas.

Other room types:

Honeymooners should book Little Vumbura's Honeymoon Tent, complete with its own romantic outdoor bath and spectacular wilderness views.


The main area of Little Vumbura is divided into four smaller parts. The open-sided lounge area – decorated in soft blue hues and incorporating an old, hollow termite mound – is ideal for relaxing with a book. Brush up on your species identification and turn the tables on your guide when you are next out on a game drive.

Adjacent to the dining area is a small bar and a boma area for evening convivial campfires. On the opposite side is a raised lounge area with a small walkway leading to a private sala extension where you can enjoy intimate dinners away from the other guests.

The cerulean swimming pool overlooks the water surrounding the island, which is filled with snorting hippos, pastel-pink water lilies and thirsty animals coming to drink.

The Bush Buddy programme will suit pre-teens and teenagers - a trained member of staff will lead them in safe but exciting safari activities like guided nature walks, traditional basket weaving, animal tracking and call identification.


The camp’s dining area is raised on stilts and tucked away under a canopy of trees with breathtaking views of the Delta. All meals are served buffet-style and can be enjoyed inside or alfresco under the stars.

Little Vumbura

"PHENOMENAL guides at Little Vumbura (our guide was Sevara) and we LOVED having the "honeymoon" suite with the lovely outdoor bathtub. The guide made SUCH a difference - we had no idea how important that was!"

David Garcia

2 thumbs way up for Little Vumbura and Wilderness Safari's. Their staff was so friendly and personable. Our guide K was such an expert and found 4 out of the big 5 for us. The only thing we didn't see was the rhino, which wasn't in that area. We know it must be the mission statement for wilderness safari's as a firm, because we visited their offices in Maun after our trip, and even there they were friendly, personable, offered us drinks and allowed us to sit in their cool a/c offices while we waited for our flight (which was late). We would definitely book with them again...and with you. Very good job.
