Vumbura Plains

Okavango Delta Botswana

Open: Vumbura Plains is open all year. 

Location: The 2 camps (north and south) that make up Vumbura Plains are in the private Vumbura Reserve in the Okavango Delta. 

Rooms: There is a total of 14 suites between the 2 camps (7 in each). They are large and contemporary in style, with an open plan sleeping and living area with polished wood floors, full length screened windows on three sides and high thatched roofs. Ceiling and freestanding fans circulate the air. Each room has a small safe and charging points for batteries. The bathroom is modern, with high quality fixtures and fittings, and there’s a separate outdoor, screened shower. There is a supply of toiletries. Each suite has a large outdoor deck with a plunge pool, sun loungers, a covered area with a dining table and chairs, and a sala (shaded daybed). 

Activities:
The camp offers a mix of game drives, mokoro trips, motorboat safaris and bird watching. As this is a private reserve night drives and guided walks are also possible. There is seasonal fishing (catch and release). A visit to a local village can be arranged at an additional cost. 

Facilities:
The 2 camps have their own central areas, similar in design and with identical facilities. There is an open-sided living room, an indoor dining area, dining deck and a natural history library. Hot and cold drinks are available from the bar. The large deck leads out to the camp fire which I surrounded by comfy sofas, where pre and post-dinner drinks are enjoyed. There is a laundry service. 

Dining: Most meals are eaten together as a group, though private dining, in the central area or on your own deck, can be arranged on request. 

Children:
Children aged 12 year and over are welcome. Families with children aged between 6 and 12 may be accepted but must book private activities. The minimum age for mokoro and walking trips is 13 years. There are 2 family units in the north camp 

Health: This is a malaria area.
