Vumbura Plains Camp is a premier tented camp situated to the north of Mombo, in a private concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve in the extreme north of the Okavango Delta. The Vumbura area is possibly the only area in the Okavango where one can see Red Lechwe (an animal that inhabits the fringes of the waterways) and a Sable antelope (an animal that enjoys the dry countryside) on the same game drive. Add in Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Cheetah and Buffalo along with all the plains animals and one has an excellent all round wildlife experience in a remote and private part of the Okavango. Birding too is great with large varieties and quantities.

Vumbura Plains has 14 tents, split into two separate camps linked by raised boardwalks and each has its own dining, lounge and bar area. The entire camp overlooks a vast and attractive floodplain and the rooms are built under the shade of cool and shady trees. All of the 14 luxury tented rooms are raised off the ground on wooden platforms with walkways connecting them to the main living areas. Each tented room has a large, very comfortable bedroom, a lounge, a "sala" and en-suite facilities with a shower, bath, a flush toilet, an outdoor shower under the stars, and a plunge pool.

The reserve offers an enormous traversing area of close on 130,000 acres. The main activity at Vumbura is game viewing in wonderful and varied countryside both by land and water activities. Open 4x4 Land Rovers allow close proximity to animals in the savannah and forested areas. Walks and mekoros give guests the opportunity to enjoy time out of a vehicle.
