Bordering the Moremi Game Reserve in the north of the Okavango Delta, this lavish safari camp is shaded by a thick canopy of trees and raised on wooden platforms, offering splendid views of the lush Delta terrain. Guests at either of the two 7-roomed satellite camps can enjoy land- and water-based activities in an unfenced private concession. Vumbura North Camp is slightly more geared towards families or groups travelling together, while Vumbura South Camp is suited to couples on honeymoon.
Birders will delight in being able spot slaty egrets, wattled cranes and the elusive Pel’s fishing owl while game lovers will enjoy being able to tick off their lists and photograph their favourites (all 4x4s are equipped with convenient bean bags for you to steady your camera). Vumbura Plains has two motorboats –each seating six – and half-a-dozen mekoro for excursions onto the flooded plains. Or take nature walks with a knowledgeable guide and try your hand at superb catch-and-release fishing.
As an eco-retreat, the emphasis at Vumbura Plains is on ensuring the most relaxing possible holiday within a magnificent stretch of wilderness. Even the walls of your enormous private shower are constructed from floor-to-ceiling glass to allow you tranquil views of herds of grazing impala or passing zebras.
