Starting each game drive with a boat ride through the channels of the delta makes for a unique safari experience. Milly and Hamish, the lovely young couple that manage the camp, are enthusiastic and dedicated to their guests. They managed to insulate the rest of the guests from a small and rather loud tour group, which is a real tribute to their hosting skills. Madala K was a super guide and made his guests feel that he took a special interest in showing them as much as he could, driving for miles to get to the wild dog pups who had been sighted near Vumbura Plains. Do plan a visit here; it's a lovely setting with terrific game viewing and wonderful staff.

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
