Vumbura has long been a favourite of those seeking luxury in the Okavango, with a few more facilities than many of the smaller luxury properties such as a spa and a gym. This is a safari property that mixes conventional luxury with safari style and does a good job to mute the great luxury that it offers so as not to distract from the surroundings.
Vumbura Plains is a luxury camp situated in the northern Okavango Delta, comprising two separate satellite camps, each with its own raised dining, lounge and bar area with a vista across the floodplains. The main area emphasises relaxation, furnished as it is with soft sofas and idiosyncratic objets d’art.
Vumbura Plains offers both land and water activities, principally game viewing in varied habitats on open vehicles, mekoro and boats, providing an excellent all-round experience. The concession is leased from five villages through the Okavango Community Trust in a partnership that ensures that the benefits of ecotourism are shared with rural stakeholders.
We do very much like this property, however, it may not suite those looking to feel a bit more at one with the environment, in this case its sister camp Little Vumbura may be a better option or the more adventurous Duba Expedition Camp.
