Little Vumbura Camp is a small haven, found on an island in a private concession in the northern extents of the Okavango Delta. This place of plentiful game and abounding wildlife is a short distance from its sister camp, Vumbura Plains. Guests can unwind in this intimate escape hidden on a charming island fringed by the floodplains, wetlands and deep, translucent channels of the renowned Okavango Delta. Accessed exclusively by boat, this camp encompasses the true spirit of the island way of life.
The 6 lavish rooms of this tented camp lie in the cool shadows of a tranquil forest, equipped to the hilt with en-suite facilities to support guests on their stay. A reading area that overlooks the floodplains that teem with game, as well as a plunge pool and star deck bring the wild directly to you.
Activities & Wildlife
Mokoro, boating and game drives take advantage of both habitat and wildlife. Surrounded as it is by water and lying close to large rivers, water-based activities are a focus at Little Vumbura Camp. Motor boats make their way up and down the exciting channels of this permanent region of the delta, whilst expert polers glide their mokoros through the marshes.
Game drives in open Land Rovers allow guests to get close to animals in the savannah areas. Walks (on request) around the islands are an opportunity to enjoy Africa from a different perspective. Game viewing is consistently good all year round at Little Vumbura Camp with lion, leopard, elephant, sable and buffalo, along with plentiful buck, provide an excellent all-round wildlife experience in this remote corner of the Okavango Delta.
Little Vumbura Camp is also part of a community participation initiative at Wilderness Safaris – bringing the communities that live around the Okavango Delta into the tourism mainstream. Hot air balloon excursions provide a different take on the land, where guests can see just how this profound land folds, curves and pans out into the horizons in every direction. For guests who enjoy fishing, the tiger fish offer a great challenge, but remember that there is a catch-and-release policy at Little Vumbura.
