About This Safari

Situated in the centre of southern Africa, Botswana lies at about 950 metres above sea level and more than 600 kilometres from the nearest coast. The country’s most striking features are its flatness and aridity. With the exception of the eastern part of Botswana – where the great majority of Batswana live and where the summer rainfall is slightly higher – three- quarters of the country constitutes the Kalahari Desert. This is what makes for its most remarkable aspect: The Okavango Delta is a wetland within a desert, receiving its waters from rain falling in central Africa, 1000 km away.

Situated in the northwestern corner of Botswana, the Okavango Delta is a World Heritage Site as it is the largest inland delta in the world. The magnificent Okavango River sprawls out over the dry sands of the Kalahari Desert forming this flourishing waterlogged oasis featuring countless meandering waterways and crystal clear lagoons studded with water lilies, as well as fertile floodplains and reeded islands inhabited with abundant wildlife. The Okavango Delta stretches over 15000 square kilometres. Visitors can enjoy a number of wonderful activities such as game viewing, fishing, bird watching or taking an authentic guided Mokoro excursion through this wetland paradise in a traditional dugout canoe. Commonly spotted animals include: lion, rhino, leopard, giraffe, hippos, elephants, crocodiles and countless species of bird.

INSIDER’S TIP: Enjoy the use of the spotting scope for exceptional viewing of birds and wildlife. If you are lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the resident otter family!

Situated in the east of the Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve ranks as one of the most beautiful reserves in Africa. It covers more than 4871 square kilometres of pristine wilderness, and the varied terrain includes savannah, winding waterways, and dense forest. This diverse ecosystem supports an incredibly wide spectrum of wildlife, ranging from large herds of buffalo, wildebeest and zebra, to the rare sitatunga and lechwe antelope, lion, cheetah and packs of wild dog in the open grasslands. The birdlife is prolific and includes most of the 550 bird species recorded on Botswana’s national bird list. A range of luxury lodges in the reserve offers visitors the perfect base to experience this corner of paradise

Vumbura Plains North camp

A modern-style safari camp that wouldn’t look out of place in an architecture magazine, Vumbura Plains is designed and operated in total empathy with its diverse surroundings. Partnerships with local communities in this region of the Okavango Delta have created empowerment opportunities while allowing guests access to its many treasures. Fourteen light, airy guest tents feature designer fittings and touches of unabashed luxury, including private plunge pools and salas, indoor and outdoor showers. Safari activities focus on day and night game drives through a variety of game-rich terrains. Seasonal water activities can be very rewarding, to say nothing of a hot air balloon safari.

There are four twin bedded tents and one double bedded tent. The single beds can be pushed together to make a double bed. There is one twin bedded guide/pilot room which is much smaller than a standard tent.
