Little Vumbura, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Little Vumbura is a Classic Camp

4Cs Projects at Little Vumbura

In addition to helping to conserve the area, Little Vumbura is part of a community participation plan that brings the benefits of ecotourism to the communities that live around the Okavango Delta.


Reducing our Footprint

Little Vumbura is powered by a hybrid system, combining a diesel-powered generator which charges a bank of batteries which in turn supplies the camp with electricity through an inverter. Thanks to this hybrid system, the generator only needs to operate for eight hours a day as opposed to 24 hours. Waste water (sewage and grey water) is treated in an Above Ground Sewage Plant, ensuring that the water is clean before being allowed to enter the natural environment.

Okavango Community Trust

Little Vumbura is situated in a Wildlife Management Area. Five villages have combined to form a Trust which has partnered with Wilderness Safaris. It manages the affairs of the community and ensures that the rewards of ecotourism are fairly distributed.

Botswana Lion Genetics Study

Researcher Simon Dures is developing a comprehensive understanding of the past and present genetic structure of the lion population centred in Botswana’s Okavango Delta.

Pack for a Purpose

Wilderness Safaris has partnered with Pack for a Purpose, a non-profit organisation that provides travellers with up-to-date information about required supplies for community-based projects. Guests that would like to bring along a contribution can view the needs for Little Vumbura’s community project on the Pack for a Purpose website.
