Vumbura Plains Camp is a premier camp in a private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve in the extreme north of the Okavango Delta. Vumbura Plains has 14 luxury tents, split into two separate camps which are linked by raised walkways. These individual camps each has its own dining, lounge and bar area. The camp's designer suites are raised off the ground giving you incredible views of the surreounding floodplains. Each suite has a comfortable bedroom, a lounge, a "sala" and en suite facilities with a shower, bath, a flush toilet, an outdoor shower under the stars, and a plunge pool.
The 130,00 acre reserve offers both land and water activities. Open 4x4 Land Rover allow close proximity to animals in the savvanah and forested area. Walks and mekoros give guests the opportunity to enjoy time out of a vehicle.
We had such a fantastic time from beginning to end! It was flawless each day to the next… the transfers, the accommodations – from the shower at Vumbura to the shower at the Vic Falls hotel, the staff, the food (especially the food at Vumbura), the scenery, the game drives, the sundowners, the EVERYTHING.Read More

Vumbura Plains Camp was a wonderfully -beautiful setting, with great accommodations set along the length of the wetland. It was quite a surprise to see the quality of the rooms there. Game drives at Vumbura had to contend with quite deep water levels at times. Our camp guide, Obi (who we found out was the head guide) often had to open the door of his vehicle to let the water drain out. At Vumbura we saw everything: lions walking through water, great elephants, leopards, wild dogs, cheetah.
Flying on to Selinda Camp, we had more good experiences --both enjoying the beautiful lodge and accommodations, dining out under the stars each night, and great game drives with another very good camp guide (Mots). Here, too, we saw everything--great elephant, several up-close viewings of a pair of cheetah brothers, a lioness with two young cubs, wonderful giraffe, wonderful male lions (calling each night). It was very interesting to learn about Derek and Beverly Joubert at Selinda Camp, their passion for African wildlife, and to see Beverly's beautiful photographs.
In all, we saw about 160 bird species during our two weeks in Botswana. Best regards,Read More
