Vumbura Plains has a private and remote location within the Kwedi Reserve in the north of the Okavango Delta. This huge reserve, which is leased from the local community, comprises of a variety of habitats including floodplains, mopane woodlands and an expanse of flat savannah grasslands, meaning that there’s diverse wildlife here.
Water-loving lechwe can be seen splashing through the reeds, and hippo and crocodile are common in the waterways, whilst rare sable antelope and elusive leopards can be spotted in the dry savannah. Herds of elephant and Cape buffalo are also seen here, as well as resident prides of lion and packs of wild dog, plus giraffe, impala, kudu and zebra are common. An incredible variety of bird species can be spotted all year round.
Guests at Vumbura Plains can experience fantastic wildlife viewing on morning and afternoon game drives, and as this is a private reserve there’s also the possibility of night drives to spot nocturnal creatures.
Guided nature walks with skilled rangers and bird walks with expert guides are also offered, as well as motorboat and ‘mokoro’ excursions on the flooded plains of the Okavango Delta, catch and release fishing trips, and thrilling hot air balloon safaris which offer an opportunity to experience the Okovango Delta from an entirely different perspective (balloon safaris are available from April to mid-October - additional costs apply).
If you're looking for a luxurious Okavango Delta safari experience in a wilderness setting with the option of both land and water based activities, then Vumbura Camp is a perfect choice.
