Vumbura Plains (pronounced Voombera) Camp is a luxury camp situated to the north of Mombo, in a private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve in the extreme north of the Okavango Delta. The Vumbura Reserve offers both land and water activities in a park that has a wonderful variety of habitats and a great diversity of wildlife.
The main activity at Vumbura Plains is game viewing in wonderful and varied countryside. Open 4×4 Land Rovers allow close proximity to animals in the savannah and forested areas. The Vumbura area is possibly the only area in the Okavango where one can see red lechwe (an animal that inhabits the fringes of the waterways) and a sable antelope (an animal that enjoys the dry countryside) on the same game drive. Add in lion, leopard, elephant, cheetah, and buffalo along with all the plains animals, and one has an excellent all round wildlife experience in a remote and private part of the Okavango. Birding, too, is great with large varieties and quantities. Walks, mokoros and boating give Vumbura’s guests the opportunity to enjoy Africa from a different perspective.
Vumbura Plains overlooks a vast, attractive floodplain and the rooms are built under the shelter of cool and shady trees. Vumbura Plains consists of two 14-bedded camps linked by raised boardwalks and each has its own dining, lounge, and bar area, although all 28 beds or parts thereof can be utilized for larger parties. All of the luxury rooms are raised off the ground on wooden platforms with walkways connecting them to the main living areas. Each room has a large and very comfortable bedroom, a lounge, a “sala”, and en suite facilities with a shower, a flush toilet and an outdoor shower under the stars. The main dining, lounge, and pub area is also raised off the ground and tucked beneath a canopy of shady, indigenous trees with a wonderful vista across the floodplains. Each room has its own plunge pool.
As an alternative to Vumbura Plains, one can also stay at Little Vumbura – a beautiful six-roomed tented camp that is shaded by the canopy of an ancient forest – another opportunity to experience all that the Okavango Delta has to offer whilst on a luxury safari.Request Information
