This property has an Idyllic Okavango setting where guests can enjoy Africa’s evenings of romance and splendour next to a spellbinding fire. Picture floating down a crystal-clear Okavango waterway on a mokoro or enjoying a couples massage out on your beautiful pool deck. Perhaps you would prefer a boat safari through the Delta channels, watching wildlife move through the water and reeds.
Vumbura Plains is a remote location on a stunning and exclusive concession in the northern Okavango Delta. The camp is a sanctuary of contemporary design that blends effortlessly into the trees that shade it from the Botswana sun. Vumbura Plains offers year-round water and land-based explorations into the Okavango where several prides of lion, leopard, cheetah and packs of endangered wild dog prey on vast herds of impala, lechwe, tsesebe and the magnificent sable antelope. Vumbura is a destination of luxury and adventure for couples and families alike.
A deck overlooking the panoramic delta
Vumbura Plains consists of two separate seven-roomed satellite camps. Vumbura north boasts two family rooms and is ideal for groups travelling together while the southern satellite is perfect for romance and honeymoon luxury.
The main lounge, dining and bar areas are airy and spacious tributes to contemporary African luxury with extensive decking and open sides offering spectacular vistas of the Okavango and the wilderness dramas unfolding there. There are both indoor and outdoor lounge areas of sumptuous comfort while the star deck – extending out into the waters of the delta where an astonishing abundance of bird, mammal and invertebrate life thrives – is a highlight for African fireside contemplation.
Like the main areas, the rooms are open, spacious and delightfully modern. The extensive outside deck with private plunge pool lies dappled by the shade of ancient African giants while the private spa, suspended over the flooded grasslands is the perfect place to luxuriate in a relaxing treatment. The deck leads to the polished wooden floors of the enormous double bedroom and lounge. The latter is a lower level refuge of delightful comfort offering endless vistas over the Okavango.
The highlight of the capacious bathroom is a huge glass-walled shower which allows you to watch the procession of delta wildlife on the plains below.
We could go on describing the crystal water and Kalahari sand or the fantastic food and wildlife sightings, but we would rather show you!
