Little Vumbura Camp is an extraordinary destination in the heart of Botswana's pristine wilderness. This camp is a cherished gem among our team at Safari Guru and a favourite among travellers seeking an outstanding safari experience.

Located on a picturesque private island in the northern region of the renowned Okavango Delta, Little Vumbura shares this remarkable landscape with its opulent and larger sister camp, Vumbura Plains. Together, they offer a glimpse into a world where untouched nature and authentic luxury coexist.

Little Vumbura Camp features a plunge pool and a dedicated reading area, complete with a wooden chair swing overlooking the expansive floodplains. Across a bridge from the dining area, you'll find a star deck and firepit that extends over the water, providing an ideal spot to admire the mesmerising starry nights under some of the least polluted skies in the world.

Getting to Little Vumbura Camp is an adventure in itself. Guests disembark onto a floating jetty after a brief boat ride to the island, setting the stage for your memorable safari experience.

Little Vumbura Camp Accommodation

The main areas of Little Vumbura Camp feature lofty canvas roofs and open sides that seamlessly blend the interior with the surrounding nature. The lounge, adorned with brilliant blue décor, reflects the watery landscape and offers comfortable sofas and armchairs with captivating water views.

The camp provides six spacious safari tents shaded by an ancient forest canopy and connected to the main area by wooden walkways. Each tent exudes comfort and is elegantly furnished in soft neutrals with touches of indigo. With pale timber floorboards, floor-to-ceiling mesh windows, and high canvas roofs, these safari tents create a sense of spaciousness and light. Among the six tents, you'll find a family tent with two en-suite bedrooms and a honeymoon tent featuring an outdoor bath.

Inside each tent, you'll discover mosquito netting-draped double or twin beds and cozy chairs. The en-suite facilities include a refreshing shower and a separate toilet. Each tent also boasts a generous deck offering breathtaking vistas across the glistening Okavango floodplains.

Little Vumbura Camp Safari Activities

Little Vumbura Camp is set within an exceptional area teeming with ecological diversity. Here, you'll encounter seasonal floodplains, permanent channels, and dry woodlands, creating a haven for a wide range of wildlife and activities. On land, anticipate awe-inspiring sightings of big cats, including majestic lions and elusive leopards. You'll also have the chance to encounter endangered wild dogs, massive herds of elephants, and hundreds-strong groups of African buffalo.

Immerse yourself in water-based adventures, including a serene glide through the channels in a traditional dugout canoe known as a mokoro. For a slightly more adventurous pace, embark on a leisurely motorboat excursion to spot hippopotamuses, crocodiles, and a mesmerising array of bird species. Fishing enthusiasts will appreciate the opportunity for catch-and-release fishing for bream and African pike.

With a touch of luck, your water-based activities may lead you to discover floating bars or stunning sundowner setups on neighbouring Phi-Phi or Shumba Island. Alternatively, elevate your experience by taking a scenic helicopter flight, offering a bird's-eye view of the floodplains and the diverse wildlife that calls this region home.
