Things to do at Little Vumbura

Due to its location, Little Vumbura Camp offers spectacular wildlife viewing. We offer a number of ways of observing wildlife to round off your experience with us.


Game Drives

Morning and afternoon game drives are offered in open 4x4 Land Rovers each accommodating a maximum of seven people allowing each guest an outside seat. Bean bags are available to use for steadying your camera while on game drive.


Night Drives

Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during the day.


Mokoro Excursions

There is no better way of viewing game and exploring the Okavango than by traditional mokoro (dug-out canoe). At Little Vumbura we have eight mekoro.


Boating

Water-level dependent, boating is another idyllic form of water wildlife viewing. Vumbura has two boats seating six guests comfortably.


Nature Walks

On request, nature walks with skilled, armed guides are wonderful ways of getting close to nature and observing the smaller things 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.


Fishing

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


Birding

The birding around Little Vumbura is exceptional all year round, with migrant species present in the summer. Pel's fishing-owl is regularly seen, with other specials like wattled crane and slaty egret.
