Little Vumbura Camp Description
Surrounded by water, Little Vumbura is a beautiful tented camp with just six tents, built under the shade of an ancient forest. Each tent is built on raised decks and are spacious with en-suite facilities. A private veranda at each tents provide views over the ever changing waterways. Each tent has a view of the floodplain, ceiling fans and tea and coffee making facilities.
The main area of the lounge, bar and dining room are all built on decks under canvas overlooking the Okavango Delta. A traditional boma provides dining under the stars! For a quiet moment, the reading area overlooks the flood plain and there is a plunge pool to cool off in. Access to Little Vumbura is by boat only from the air strip.
Little Vumbura Game Viewing and Wildlife Activities
Little Vumbura is in the northern Okavango Delta on the Vumbura Concession. Vumbura has both the wetland and savannah species of wildlife – Red Lechwe, Waterbuck, Hippos, Crocodiles, as well as Sable, Kudu, Wildebeest and Tsessebe, who roam the open plains. On game drives we often see more Sable than we do Impala. Herds of Buffalo and Elephant occur here, along with the predators – Lion, Leopard, Wild Dog and Cheetah. Guests who enjoy their birding will love the combination of all the Okavango water “specials” with acacia and dry woodland species.
Little Vumbura offers both water and land activities. Mokoros (dug-out canoes) traverse the flood plains under the guidance of our experienced polers. Open 4×4 Land Rovers allow guests to get close to animals in the savannah areas. Guests usually have the opportunity to see Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Sable and Buffalo, along with all the plains animals, providing an excellent all round wildlife experience in this remote corner of the Okavango. Walks around the islands as well as night drives give guests the opportunity to enjoy Africa from a different perspective.
