On arrival into Maun Airport you will be met by a representative and assisted onto your flight to Little Vumbura Camp, a flight of about 25 minutes. On arrival you will be met by your guide who will transfer you to camp, a short drive from the airstrip to the boat jetty, where you will take a stunning 20 minute boat ride to camp, your Okavango home for the next 2 nights.
Little Vumbura is situated on a wooded island in the same region as its sister camp, Vumbura Plains. Designed to blend in with its surroundings, the camp is a beautiful six bedroomed tented camp shaded by the canopy of an ancient Okavango forest. Each tent is ensuite, large and roomy with an open-air shower and views of the surroundings. A plunge pool and reading area overlooks the floodplains and a star deck leads off the dining area.
Surrounded as it is by water and lying close to large rivers, water-based activities are a highlight here, Mokoro rides see you gliding through the floodplains under the guidance of experienced polers and motor boats explore the deeper permanent channels. Game drives in open Land Rovers explore the savannah areas on the concession which is noted for its diversity and concentrations of plains game. Leopard stalk the woodland areas while cheetah are often spotted peering across the open plains. Lion and buffalo interactions are also a highlight. Walks (on request) around the island are an opportunity to enjoy Africa from a different perspective. Wildlife viewing and birding is consistently good all year round in this area.
You guide will discuss your particular interests and activity preferences and work these into your schedule across the next two days.
Days on safari begin with an early wake up call with your choice of hot drink, followed by a light breakfast before setting off on your morning activity, as planned with your guide. Perhaps an early morning game drive to track the movements of the predators the night before, a peaceful mokoro ride or boat ride along the waterways. Returning to camp for brunch and a siesta and perhaps a swim in the pool. Later that afternoon after high tea you will set off again for your afternoon activity, toasting the sun set and returning for dinner.
