On Safari

Vumbura Reserve offers an enormous area of nearly 130,000 acres, offering land and water-based activities in a wonderful variety of habitats.With a great diversity of wildlife, the main activity at Vumbura Plains is game-viewing and open 4x4 Land Rovers allow close proximity to animals in the savannah and forested areas.

Vumbura is possibly the only area in the Okavango Delta where you can see Red Lechwe (an animal that inhabits the fringes of the waterways) and the Sable Antelope (an animal that enjoys the dry countryside) on the same game-drive. Add in lions, leopards, elephants, cheetahs and buffaloes, along with all the plains animals, and you have an excellent all-round wildlife experience in a remote and private part of the Okavango.

Guests who enjoy bird-watching will love the combination of Okavango water 'specials', including acacia and dry woodland species, while walks, trips in traditionl mokoros (dug-out canoes) and boating excursions give Vumbura Plains' guests the opportunity to enjoy Botswana from a different perspective.
