Vumbura Plains Camp borders 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 Okavango Delta terrain.
Named an eco-retreat, the emphasis at Vumbura Plains is on ensuring a relaxed Botswana 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.
Vumbra Plains Camp has seven cavernous suites, spaced well apart and raised up on decks. These suites really are luxurious, even by Botswana accommodation standards, each with its own very private plunge pool and deck, and lots of safari-chic touches. High wooden walkways link the suites at Vumbura Plains with the central areas.
Vumbura Plains offers a wide choice of activities including day and night 4WD game drives, mokoro trips and sometimes short walks – although because of the density of big game, walks are always at the discretion of the guides and managers. When water levels allow, there’s a deep-water channel nearby for motorboat trips.
Vast herds of elephants and buffalo abound, as well as zebra, wildebeest and a particularly large range of antelope, including red lechwe, impala and tsessebe, kudu and sable. The birds are equally varied, ranging from pink pelicans to mopane specialists such as red-billed hornbills.
