Delta island luxury tented camp
Little Vumbura is located in the eastern part of the 90 000 ha Kwedi concession. The western parts of the concession consist of open, seasonally inundated floodplains and small palm islands, whereas the eastern parts are comprised of a diverse mosaic of habitat types from permanent swamp, to seasonal floodplains, acacia woodlands and large stands of mopane and Kalahari apple leaf. The concession is home to a wide range of large mammals including a variety of antelope (from red lechwe to sable), good populations of elephant, buffalo, hippo and giraffe, and all the large predators. Birdlife is colourful and abundant.
Little Vumbura is situated on a wooded island in the same region as its sister camp, Vumbura Plains. Designed to blend in with its surroundings, Little Vumbura is a beautiful six-roomed tented camp shaded by the canopy of an ancient Okavango forest. Each tent is en-suite, large and roomy with an open air shower and views of the surroundings. A plunge pool and reading area overlook the floodplains and a star deck leads off the dining area.
Surrounded as it is by water and lying close to large rivers, water-based activities are a focus with mekoros traversing the floodplains under the guidance of experienced polers, and motor boats the permanent channels. Wildlife viewing and birding is consistently good all year round.
Game drives in open 4WD vehicles explore the savannah areas. Walks (on request) around the islands are an opportunity to enjoy Africa from a different perspective.
