4Cs Projects at Vumbura Plains

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

Okavango Community Trust

Vumbura Plains 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.

Eco-friendly systems

In keeping with Wilderness’ objective of reducing energy consumption and fuel use at all its camps, Vumbura Plains is 100% solar powered, with electricity and hot water provided via solar panels and inverters. 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.

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 list for Vumbura Plains’ community projects on the Pack for a Purpose website.
