Little Vumbura
This intimate, homely camp on a secluded island in the private Vumbura concession in Botswana, is only accessible by boat, making it the idyllic place for observing and discovering the Okavango Delta and its wildlife.

Little Vumbura

Tucked away on a pretty island reserve in the Okavango Delta Forest in Botswana, lies the glorious Little Vumbura tented camp. Set in the extreme North of the Delta getting there is a worthwhile adventure! With a forty minute flight from Maun and an approximate one hour and fifteen minute flight to Kasane. From the airstrip it is a forty five minute drive, followed by a five minute boat ride to the camp.

Designed to blend in with its surroundings, Little Vumbura is a beautiful six-roomed tented camp shaded by the forest canopy. Each well-appointed tent has en-suite facilities and a deck with incredible vistas. In the main camp, a plunge pool and reading area overlook the floodplains with a star deck leading off from the dining area.

With the contrast of the waterways and savanna the activities here are varied, and the concession is home to some of the broadest and most exciting water and land based game viewing in the Delta - hippo and crocodile spotting from a boat is one of them! They also have good concentrations of game such as lion, leopard, elephant, sable and buffalo. And, the birding is exceptional!

Little Vumbura is a true Okavango Delta experience and one of the top destinations in the Okavango Delta!

Caroline's Hot Tips

The birding is exceptional! Don't forget your binoculars!

Enjoy the combination of land and water-based safari activities.

Don’t miss out on a morning Mokoro experience, water level dependent!

Cruise through the channels by motor boat, it’s a novel safari experience!

Try your luck at fishing on a catch and release basis!



Why is it you can never hope to describe the emotion Africa creates? You are lifted. Out of whatever pit, unbound from whatever tie, released from whatever fear. You are lifted and you see it all from above.'
