BOTSWANA SAFARIS SEE PLENTY OF WILDLIFE IN LUXURY

In the extreme north of the Okavango Delta in Botswana you’ll find Vumbura Plains Camp a luxury safari lodge situated in a private concession, leased from the neighbouring community.  Here, you’ll be submerged in a traversing area of 60,000 hectares of unspoiled nature and abundant wildlife Vumbura Plains Camp with breathtaking vistas across the Okavango Delta floodplains.  The lodge has two separate seven-roomed satellite camps, each with its own raised dining, lounge and bar area tucked beneath a canopy of cool, shady, indigenous trees and a star-gazing deck that protrudes into the floodplain.

Each large, luxurious room is raised off the ground on wooden decks - each comprises a bedroom, lounge, shower and full en-suite bathroom. Outdoor showers are standard. It is open on three sides, and the billowing curtains between the various areas create the feeling of a yacht floating through the floodplains. Each room also has a plunge pool and 'sala' - a comfortable place to recline and relax, watching the waving grasses of the floodplain.

Vumbura Plains Camp offers both land and water activities, principally nature viewing in varied habitats in open 4x4 vehicles, nature walks, mokoro trips and boat excursions. Whilst exploring the spectacular ecology of this area, one can enjoy close-up viewing of lion, leopard, elephant, cheetah and buffalo along with all the plains game.  What makes Vumbura Plains Camp, so remarkable is its location in the Delta, known for having such a wide variety of habitats and species that it has representatives of just about every animal that occurs in the Okavango biome.
