Vumbura Plains is a premier camp situated in the extreme north of the Okavango Delta within its own private concession. With an enormous traversing area of 60,000 hectares guests can expect a wide variety of habitats and a diverse wildlife including close-up viewing of lion, leopard, elephant, cheetah and buffalo along with all the plains game. Birding is fabulous here with immense species diversity and mind-boggling numbers.

Vumbura Plains Camp is divided into two smaller camps each comprising 14 beds, 10 twin bedded tents, 2 x honeymoon tents & 2 x family tents. Each room also has a plunge pool and 'sala' - a comfortable area to lie and relax, watching the waving grasses of the floodplain. Each of the 2 camps has its own raised dining, lounge and bar area tucked beneath a canopy of cool, shady, indigenous trees with magnificent vistas across the Okavango Delta floodplains.

An approximate 40 minute flight from Maun and an approximate 1hr 15 minute flight to Kasane. It is a 40 minute drive from the airstrip to the camp.

Another fabulous room in an exciting and stylish lodge with a great ambience. The food here too was delicious. Guide Ban was very experienced and good. Amazing landrover with a snorkel felt amphibious as there we splashed along through waterways with no sign of anything solid underneath. A lot of driving over small trees too which I enjoyed less than Ban though he assured me that they spring back! All staff were great - including Millie and Hamish, the beautiful Candy who showed me how to tie her intricate headscarfs, and the sparkling Ona. Watched a well-fed family of lions relaxing for ages. Hyaenas CAN be cute - a mother watched fondly as her own two puppies played with another pair she was obviously babysitting.

A lot of space and quite luxurious but this could have been in the Caribbean or any other warm weather destination. The space lacked a sense of place.
