Little Vumbura - Game Drives
Morning and afternoon game drives allow you to get close to animals in the savannah areas where lion, leopard, elephant, sable and buffalo along with extensive plains game roam. Our open 4x4 Land Rovers each accommodate a maximum of seven people allowing each guest a ‘window’ seat.
Little Vumbura - Night Drives
Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during the day. Porcupine, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and lesser bushbaby are just some of these.
Little Vumbura - Mokoro Excursions
There is no better way of viewing game and exploring the Okavango than by traditional mokoro (dugout canoe) often providing up close and personal sightings of tiny frogs and exciting birdlife.
Little Vumbura - Boating
Water-level dependent, boating is another idyllic form of water wildlife viewing. Sights of hippo and crocodile are common in the waterways.
Little Vumbura - Guided Nature Walks
On request and dependent on the availability of a qualified walking guide, nature walks with skilled, armed guides are wonderful ways of getting close to nature and observing the smaller creatures and plants you miss when travelling by vehicle.
Little Vumbura - Fishing
Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer seasonally on a catch-and-release basis.
Little Vumbura - Birding
The birding at Vumbura is as varied as it is exceptional all year round. In the summer many migrant species are present, while other specials which are regularly seen include wattled crane, slaty egret, chirping cisticola, fan-tailed widowbird, pink-backed pelican and possibly rosy-throated longclaw for the dedicated birders.
