Place: Contemporary and luxurious Vumbura Plains lies in an area that is a mix of water and dry land habitats. The wildlife is abundant and diverse, so that both land and water activities on vehicles, mekoro and boats deliver an all-round African safari experience.
Accommodation: Vumbura Plains comprises two satellite camps, each with its own main area with an expansive vista across the floodplains, and furnished with idiosyncratic objets d’art. The fourteen raised luxury tents (eight, including two family units, and six with no family accommodation, at North and South camps respectively) are unique and stylish in design, with extensive use of light, wood and space. Each includes a sunken lounge, sala, and plunge pool. Each of the two family units has private decks linking the two separate tents.
Purpose: The Vumbura Concession is leased from remote rural communities organised under the Okavango Community Trust. The result of this partnership includes socio-economic benefits, livelihood diversification, and benefits from training and skills development for the people of the villages – as well as more positive attitudes to tourism and conservation.
NOTE: Hot air ballooning excursion (weather permitting) is offered from mid-May 2021 to mid-September 2021, as well as mid-April 2022 to mid-September 2022.
