Okavango Delta

Little Vumbura


Exclusive island escape

Built on an island in a private concession in the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta, the intimate Little Vumbura camp is small by name but big on experience.

Your tented suite, one of just six, enjoys immense views across the floodplains from its private deck and plunge pool. All built on stilts to have minimal impact on the environment, follow raised wooden walkways over the rushes to communal dining spot, boma area and star deck.

Within an exceptionally varied mosaic landscape encapsulating the wider Delta in miniature, the area around Little Vumbura attracts a great diversity and density of wildlife from big cats to elephant herds which you can discover on an exciting blend of land a water-based safari activities.
