Vumbura Plains Camp is a luxury camp situated in a private concession in the extreme north of the Okavango Delta.
The concession, which is leased from the neighbouring community, includes a wide variety of habitats in a traversing area of 60,000 hectares. The diverse wildlife has representatives of almost every animal type that occurs in the Okavango biome.
Vumbura Plains Camp comprises 2 separate 7-suited satellite camps, each with its own raised dining, lounge and bar area tucked beneath a canopy of cool, shady, indigenous trees. A star-gazing deck with comfortable cushions protrudes into the floodplain.
The suites are 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 in which you can lie and relax, watching the waving grasses of the floodplain.
Vumbura Plains Camp offers both land and water activities, principally nature viewing in varied habitats in open 4x4 vehicles, nature walks, mokoro trips and boat excursions.
Whilst exploring the ecology of this area, you can enjoy close-up viewing of lion, leopard, elephant, cheetah and buffalo along with all the plains game.
