Vumbura Plains, a luxurious retreat of contemporary design, seems to float on a sea of waving reeds in the midst of a large floodplain. The sumptuous rooms, each with its own plunge pool and sala, are uniquely designed, spacious and raised on wooden decks to take in a wide-angled vista. Because the area is a mix of water and dry land, wildlife is diverse, so water-loving lechwe splash through the reeds, while rare sable antelope can be seen in the dry savannah. Lion, leopard, elephant, cheetah, wild dog and buffalo along with plains game and prolific birds provide an excellent all-round wildlife experience. • 14 tents • 100% solar • day and night game drives • village visit • mokoro • boat • nature walks • catch-and-release fishing • spa

I’m writing the review that I wish I had read prior to making my decision on what lodge to book. I have been to Botswana twice, both times in the green season and stayed at several different lodges. This was my least favorite. We had a three night stay. There are so many

Dear Manju & Ashok, Thank you for your amazing review, we are delighted to see how much you enjoyed your journey with us and glad to see how much you were able to learn about the Kwedi concession and its people. The loss of Big Boy has indeed hit everyone at Wilderness very hard and he was greatly loved. A lovely tribute was posted on the Wilderness Safaris blog about the wonderful Billy if you would like to see more - even a great video of his powerful roar. if you would like to take a look on the Wilderness Safaris website under our blogs: A Tribute to Bilimangenge – The King of the Okavango Delta. We hope you will both visit us again soon. Wilderness Safaris

Overall amazing experience at Vumbura - saw plenty of game, the lodge is fantastic (each house is very secluded and comes with own pool!), and staff is great! What I loved the most is custom-made experience - you tailor your stay to what you want to do and Vumbura delivers!
