My wife and I visited Little Vumbura earlier this month and can easily say that it was a once in a lifetime experience. The small, intimate camp was very comfortable and the staff went out of their way to make the visit very special. When we mentioned that our trip was a delayed honeymoon they took the extra step of providing a poolside candlelit dinner complete with Champagne on ice and an African serenade. Just special in every respect. The game drives were very memorable and our guide, Rain, repeatedly demonstrated his broad knowledge of the flora and fauna of the Delta. We especially liked dodging the elephants that moved into camp every night we were there. If you get the chance to visit the Delta, you won't be disappointed with Little Vumbura. Simply unforgettable.

Designed to blend in with its surroundings, this beautiful camp is shaded by the canopy of an ancient Okavango forest that covers the island. A plunge pool and reading area are raised to provide a fine view over the floodplains and a star-deck leads off over the water from the dining area. HighlightsSurrounded as it is by water and lying close to large channels, aquatic creatures are easily found, but general wildlife viewing is consistently good all year round, with lion, leopard, elephant, sable and buffalo along with extensive plains game. Little Vumbura is situated in a concession leased from remote rural communities organised under the Okavango Community Trust and aims to help bring the benefits of ecotourism to local people.6 Tents: Spacious canvas tents; en-suite bathrooms; honeymoon suite has an outdoor bathtubExperiences: Game drivesMokoro excursionsBoatingGuided walks (on request) ... more less
