Located on a small forested island, packed with jackalberry and mangosteen and fringed by bulrush wetlands, Little Vumbura is a six tented camp offering a wide range of activities ranging from land based game drives to mekero trips through the year.
Set on the concession east of Duba Plains, the Vumbura Game Management Area (NG23) is slightly more diverse in its terrain and therefore also the resident game. The camp is accessed by boat which makes for an exciting arrival through the bulrush marsh. On arrival at the jetty there is a small wooden walkway over a reed marsh full of lily-pads, into the main area of Little Vumbura where there is a dining room, open-air deck, bar, fire pit and plunge pool. Characterised by striking blue seating, dyed by a naturally occurring pigment found in Botswana, and by great swathes of space, the main mess area is a lovely place to eat and meet.
Little Vumbura is connected by pathways on the ground, and shrouded in trees, which lend the camp a very natural feel. Although Little Vumbura originally started life as a four tented camp it was so popular that they decided to add two more. The tents now are extremely luxurious. Each has a view of the seasonal plains that fill during the flood months (June through to October); each possesses a double bed, lounge and verandha. All the tents are en-suite with hot and cold running water and there is also an external shower area adjoined to each. The style of the rooms is relaxed, with neutral colours and natural fabrics dominating.
On top of the drives and mekoro trips, activities are guided walks, bush picnics and sundowners.
