Little Vumbura Camp

KWEDI CONCESSION, OKAVANGO DELTA, BOTSWANA


Little Vumbura Camp is situated in the extreme north of the Okavango Delta in what is known locally as the Kwedi Reserve. Here the vegetation ranges from open floodplains to dense mopane bushveld, offering spectacular game viewing and birding opportunities all year round. The permanent swamp abounds with beautiful tree islands, including the Little Vumbura, a beautiful six-roomed tented camp shaded by the canopy of an ancient Okavango forest. 

The annually flooded grasslands surrounding Little Vumbura Camp offer seasonal viewing of elephant, giraffe, antelope, zebra, common waterbuck and reedbuck, wildebeest, red lechwe and Cape buffalo. Encounters with hippo and crocodile are common in the waterways. Predators include the African Wild Dog, several resident prides of lion, leopard, cheetah and the African wildcat.

Activities in the Little Vumbura Camp include game drives in open Land Rovers that allow guests to get close to animals in the savannah areas. Walks (on request) around the islands are an opportunity to enjoy Africa from a different perspective. Game viewing is consistently good all year round at Little Vumbura Camp with lion, leopard, elephant, sable and buffalo along with extensive plains game.
