Vumbura Plains Camp, Okavango Delta

From your own, private plunge pool you have a superb view of a range of wildlife enjoying their own, not-so-private, bathing pools on the Okavango floodplains.

Make Vumbura Plains part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Botswana and you never need miss a moment of possible game viewing. It seems that anywhere, and everywhere, you stand you can soak in massive views across countryside that includes the world-renowned floodplains of the Okavango Delta.

Your own lodge will be perched high on a raised platform, giving you a commanding view of the surrounding environment. You will dine beneath a shady canopy of trees, in a luxurious dining area and lounge, with open sides giving uninterrupted views of the passing wildlife. And even night time is great for watching an impressive display. There’s a viewing platform above the floodplains – perfect for star gazing, or simply listening to nocturnal animals calling to each other across the darkness.

  • Sadly, we never got to go on our trip to Canada in June, due to Covid 19. However, I'm giving a 5 star review because we received such excellent service from Gemma. She itook on board all I asked for and arranged a fantastic tinerary. She was always prompt and professional both in planning the holiday and during the very circumstances of Covid. We would not hesitate to come back to The Ultimate Travel Company.
