Vumbura Plains Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Vumbura Plains is a Premier Camp

Eco-retreat offering the best of the Okavango’s wildlife and activities

A retreat of contemporary and unique design, Vumbura Plains comprises two separate satellite camps, consisting of 14 rooms overall (of which two accommodate families). Each camp has its own sumptuous lounge and dining area tucked beneath a canopy of shady, indigenous trees. Magnificent vistas across the Okavango Delta extend outward while a deck with comfortable cushions protrudes into the floodplain, either for star-gazing or as a convivial camp fire setting.

Each large, luxurious room is raised off the ground, with indoor and outdoor showers and an en-suite bathroom. A step down is the lounge area, open on three sides for that iconic view of the floodplains. Additional room features include a private plunge pool and 'sala' – a place from which to watch the passing parade of wildlife or indulge in a soothing massage.

Highlights

  • Game viewing at Vumbura is enjoyed on both land and water year-round
  • The habitat mix means just about every species found in the Okavango can be seen
  • Excellent predator sightings, from lion to wild dog
