Vumbura Plains has some of the best game viewing in all of Botswana with a large mix of big game, predator, prey and birdlife. It’s located in the Kwedi Concession on the border between the Okavango and Linyanti/Selinda region, a mixed landscape where guests can quietly mokoro through lily pads and reeds or drive through dry plains. This is a good option for someone staying at just one camp in the Delta because it offers both land and water activities.
Sleek, sophisticated, and designed with glass and wood, each room has stunning views, a big sunken living room, a sala, outdoor shower, private deck, and plunge pool. And the rooms are huge! The suites are divided into two camps with 8 suites comprising the North Camp and 6 in the South Camp. All of the suites are similar, but we prefer the South Camp as it feels slightly more intimate. Sitting around a camp fire while listening to the night sounds and watching the sunset at the end of the day is the perfect way to unwind.
We often recommend the sister camp, Little Vumbura, for its romantic and intimate vibe whereas Vumbura Plains is the more modern, larger camp. However, this is an amazing property with the excellent food, service, guiding, accommodation, and game viewing. We’ve always felt very pampered at Vumbura Plains.
