About Little Vumbura
Little Vumbura is a beautiful six roomed tented camp situated to the north
of Mombo in a private reserve bordering the Moremi Game Reserve in
the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta. Little Vumbura offers both water and
land activities, as well as walks for those who are keen. Mokoros (dugout
canoes) traverse the flood plains under the guidance of our experienced polers.
Open 4x4 Land Rovers allow guests to get close to animals in the savannah areas.
However during the annual period of high floodwaters in the Okavango, this
activity is limited. For much of the March to October period, we boat to dry
land and only board our game viewing vehicles there. Guests usually have the
opportunity to see lion, leopard, elephant, sable and buffalo, along with all
the plains game, providing an excellent all-round game experience in this remote
corner of the Okavango.
Walks (on request basis only) around the islands give guests the opportunity to
enjoy Africa from a different perspective. The tented rooms are large and
comfortably appointed, with an en-suite bathroom with hot and cold running
water, a shower, and flush toilet - and an outside shower under the stars.
The camp has a plunge pool too. Access into this area is only by aircraft and if
the water levels are high in winter, a mokoro trip and / or a boat will transfer
guests to camp.
