Vumbura Plains

Explore the Wild: Discover the Beauty of the Botswana


The Vumbura Plains Private Wilderness Area is found in the northern-eastern Okavango Delta adjoining the Moremi Game Reserve. Its prime position in the dry savannah interior, set on one of the main channels that feeds the Delta, means year-round adventures on land and water. Contemporary and luxurious, the camp is as lavish and lush as its beautiful surroundings, which are home to an abundant and diverse array of wildlife, including large – and small – predators. The 60,000-hectare (148,263-acre) private concession is leased from five villages through the Okavango Community Trust, a partnership that spans many successful years of impactful conservation tourism in the area.

What to Expect

The Vumbura Plains camp offers exceptional opportunities for families and friends to reconnect and enjoy shared adventures in one of the world’s most pristine wilderness areas. Guests can look forward to thrilling game drives spotting iconic wildlife. Here water safaris by boat or traditional mokoro (dugout canoe) explore the waterways where elephants wade, and countless birds brighten the sky. Guided walks are also on offer with our passionate guides, who enthral with their deep knowledge and love of the bush. In camp, guests can enjoy a leisurely afternoon at their suite’s private pool, soaking in the glorious views and watching the wildlife parade. Evenings are a sensorial adventure, recounting the day’s safari by a crackling fire and feasting on our chefs’ local delights.


Twin/Double Suites

Luxurious suites, elevated on wooden decking along the water’s edge, feature private viewing decks, plunge pools, sun loungers, and covered salas for relaxation and dining. A scenic walkway leads to the open lounge and dining area where exquisite cuisine is a major highlight.

The camp’s artwork, screens, maps, woven basket patterns, and dyes vividly depict the formation of the Okavango Delta and its vibrant ecosystem. The rich color scheme, with turquoise, purples, and natural tones, pays homage to the Delta wilderness.

Wardrobe doors and shower screens showcase striking underwater photographs, while charcoal-colored mosquito nets and black sanitaryware contribute to the contemporary ambiance.

Each suite is thoughtfully designed to capture enchanting Delta views and invite nature inside.


Family Accommodation

The Vumbura Plains’ family units can host four guests, with two roomy en-suite bedrooms. The main bedroom features a sunken indoor lounge, spacious indoor and outdoor showers, while the second bedroom is cosier and has an indoor shower. Both bedrooms have separate entrances and share an outdoor deck with a private plunge pool and seating area.

We recommend families with young children choose the family unit with the interconnected, shaded lounge area, which is semi-outdoor and equipped with canvas blinds for all-weather conditions.

Game Drives

Vumbura Plains offers both morning and afternoon open 4×4 game drives, providing an intimate connection with the wildlife and expert guides bridging the gap between guests and the intricacies of the natural world.

Guided Nature Walks

Wilderness Vumbura Plains’ unique community concession agreement means that many of the professional guides here grew up in this area, adding an extra layer of authenticity and cultural relevance to their expert tracking and identification skills. Swap your game drive for a nature walk, and marvel at the smaller things you may miss when travelling by vehicle.

Night Drives

Experience the enchanting world of night drives at Wilderness Vumbura Plains. As the sun sets and darkness falls, our expert guides employ filtered spotlights to unveil the captivating realm of nocturnal animals. Delve into the mysteries of the wilderness under the starlit Okavango sky, where creatures of the night come to life, adding a thrilling dimension to your safari adventure.


The birding at Wilderness Vumbura Plains is as diverse as it is exceptional throughout the year. Search for some of the hundreds of bird species, from lilac-breasted rollers to carmine bee-eaters, and secretary birds. Don’t miss the Pel’s fishing owl! In the summer months, many migrant species are present, while other special sightings include wattled crane, slaty egret, chirping cisticola, fan-tailed widowbird, pink-backed pelican, and possibly rosy-throated longclaw for dedicated birders.
