Vumbura Plains is a Premier Camp

Things to do at Vumbura Plains

Due to our location, Vumbura Plains offers both land- and water-based game-viewing activities, as ways of observing the range of life around 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 a 'window' seat.


Night Drives

Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you might not see during the day.


Mokoro Excursions

There is no better way of viewing game and exploring the Okavango than by traditional mokoro (dugout canoe). These excursions reveal the fascinating smaller creatures of the Delta including colourful frogs and lively waterbirds.


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, and depending on qualified guide availability, nature walks with skilled guides are wonderful ways of getting close to nature and observing the smaller things you miss when travelling by vehicle.


Fishing

Fishing is on offer seasonally on a catch-and-release basis. A limited supply of basic equipment is available at camp.


Birding

The birding around Vumbura Plains 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.


Cultural Visits*

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