This camp is something, which I did not expected in the middle of delta. It is too much of a luxury resort than a safari camp. I wish Wilderness build 2 camps in their concession, so travellers interested in nature and animals could be there in more modest accomodation but still be able to enjoy safari drives in this beautiful...

We had two nights at Vumbura Plains North Camp in early December and it was an experience we'll never forget. The flight to Vumbura airstrip was incredible, our pilot flew low over the delta and we'd seen several herds of elephants before our feet had touched the ground. 'G' met us from there to drive us the 40 minute transfer...

This is a very special place. We were there for 3 nights last week. The "tents" are wonderful and the staff is first rate. The food was very good, not outstanding. However, if you love chocolate, ask them to make the chocolate fudge cake. Amazing! Now, I'm going to share a great tip which I wish someone on staff would...

Truly a magical place in the Okavango Delta. With friends (all seasoned safari travelers) we had fantastic game drives with our experienced ranger Lazy. Very adequate and pleasant company in a close group of friends. In addition, we experieced the sundowner by the speedboat, absolutely recommended. As sailing with the Mokoro boats.

Loved it, truly awesome seeing so many species, including honey badger, wild dogs, and aardwolf. Game viewing at Vumbura was outstanding and their attention to detail is great. Amazing views from the cottages, so many wonderful birds. The water excursion was stunning, the vegetation, the sunsets, and the otters! In fairness, the bathrooms are showing their wear and tear.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Vumbura Plains, a luxurious retreat of contemporary design, seems to float on a sea of waving reeds in the midst of a large floodplain. The sumptuous rooms, each with its own plunge pool and sala, are uniquely designed, spacious and raised on wooden decks to take in a wide-angled vista. Because the area is a mix of water and dry land, wildlife is diverse, so water-loving lechwe splash through the reeds, while rare sable antelope can be seen in the dry savannah. Lion, leopard, elephant, cheetah, wild dog and buffalo along with plains game and prolific birds provide an excellent all-round wildlife experience. • 14 tents • 100% solar • day and night game drives • village visit • mokoro • boat • nature walks • catch-and-release fishing • spa ... more   less
