A recent lavish renovation project has elevated Vumbura Plains to new heights, positioning it firmly among the very finest luxury safari camps in Botswana. Tucked away in a private concession in the northern end of the Okavango Delta, Vumbura is surrounded by a blend of dry bush and wide, watery channels, providing memorable wildlife encounters on both land and water.
Vumbura’s 14 polished suites are divided between two self-contained satellite camps, linked by a series of walkways. Each inviting residence, elevated on a wooden platform, opens up on three sides and boasts an expansive private viewing deck with magnificent views over the flood plains. The individual decks also offer comfortable sun loungers, private plunge pools and a sunken outdoor living area which lends itself to an afternoon siesta or intimate private dining experience.
Spend your days drifting up the delta in a canoe, traversing the bush on game drives in search of lion, leopard and cheetah, or on boat safaris spotting wallowing hippos, crocodiles and bathing elephants. Round off each day with a lavish three-course dinner before retreating to the stargazing deck and swapping stories with other guests around the campfire.
