Things to do at Little Vumbura

Due to its location, Little Vumbura offers a number of ways to observe the spectacular wildlife of this diverse concession.


Game Drives

Morning and afternoon game drives allow you to get close to animals in the savannah areas where lion, leopard, elephant, sable and buffalo along with extensive plains game roam. Our open 4x4 Land Rovers each accommodate a maximum of seven people allowing each guest a ‘window’ seat.


Night Drives

Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during the day. Porcupine, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and lesser bushbaby are just some of these.


Mokoro Excursions*

There is no better way of viewing game and exploring the Okavango than by traditional mokoro (dugout canoe) often providing up close and personal sightings of tiny frogs and exciting birdlife. *This activity is water-level dependant.


Boating*

Water-level dependent, boating is another idyllic form of water wildlife viewing. Sights of hippo and crocodile are common in the waterways.*This activity is water-level dependant.


Nature Walks

On request and dependent on the availability of a qualified walking guide, nature walks with skilled, armed guides are wonderful ways of getting close to nature and observing the smaller creatures and plants you miss when travelling by vehicle.


Cultural Visits*

Visit one of the traditional villages of the Okavango Community Trust, meet the people and learn about the local culture. *This activity is at extra cost.


Fishing

Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer seasonally on a catch-and-release basis.


Birding

“ It was interesting reading the guest book with the odd critical comment about the lack of Wi-Fi. Please don't give way to this, part of the joy of being here was the lack of Wi-Fi and ringing mobile phones. ”
