Vumbura Plains Camp is located on the excellent Vumbura Concession to the north of the Okavango Delta.

This is an excellent mainly dry safari area which has a deserved reputation for superb game and guiding.

Accommodations are split between into two separate camps, Vumbura North and Vumbura South with seven rooms each. Both camps are very modernly designed and very focused on top quality accommodation. Both camps have luxury tented rooms with private facilities and a plunge pool.

All 14 of the luxury rooms are raised off the ground on wooden platforms with walkways connecting them to the main living areas. Each room has a large, very comfortable bedroom, a lounge, a "sala" and en-suite facilities with a shower, a flush toilet and an outdoor shower. The main dining area and lounge are nestled among indigenous trees with wonderful views out across the floodplain. There is also a swimming pool at Vumbura Plains.

Game activities at the camps include expert guided night and day drives in open 4x4 and walking safaris, mokoro (dug-out canoes) and conventional boat trips to view the water-based wildlife. The landscape around Vumbura hosts both wetland and savannah animal species. The bird watching in this area of Moremi is excellent and fishing trips are popular. Red lechwe, waterbuck, hippos, crocodiles, as well as sable, kudu, wildebeest and tsessebe roam the open plains. Herds of Buffalo and Elephant can be seen here, along with the predators like lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah.

The camps are booked on an all-inclusive basis with accommodation, meals and drinks (no premium brands), activities and laundry.
