Vumbura Plains Camp
Why we like it
- Vumbura Plains Camp is a luxury camp in the northern Okavango Delta
- Located on a private concession of 60,000 hectares of pristine wilderness
- Spacious contemporary rooms each with a large bedroom, a sunken lounge and a private deck with plunge pool
- One family suite with two en-suite bedrooms
- Activities on offer are day and night game drives, walking, mekoros, boat trips, seasonal fishing and bird watching
- An excellent choice of camp offering the finest luxuries and comforts in this area of outstanding beauty
After a morning game drive, enjoy a massage treatment on your private deck absorbing the sounds of the African bush, a truly invigorating treat.
Once again we have thoroughly enjoyed our holiday with A&K. There was a fascinating mix of location and camp styles and the particular sequence worked very well for us.
- KB, Surrey
The main area of the camp opens up to a large deck overlooking the floodplains, a perfect place to sit and watch the sunset with your choice of drink. Plenty of luxurious and oversized seating has been designed to maximise space and create a relaxing environment that blends in with the surrounding nature.
Game viewing and birdlife in this area is excellent year round it is the only place in the Okavango Delta that you will probably see a red lechwe (an animal that inhabits the edges of the waterways) and a sable antelope (an animal that prefers dry countryside) proving that this area is not only scenically different but very interesting from a wildlife perspective. Other game that you will expect to see seasonally are elephant, giraffe, impala, kudu, zebra, common waterbuck and reedbuck, tsessebe, wildebeest, and Cape buffalo. Predators include the African Wild Dog, several resident prides of lion, leopard, cheetah and the African wildcat.
