Fly from Savuti to Little Vumbura Camp, located in the extreme north of the Okavango Delta. Here the vegetation ranges from open floodplains to dense mopane bushveld - offering spectacular game viewing and birding opportunities all year round.
The permanent swamp and island habitat abounds with beautiful treed islands of every size, surrounded by permanent waterways created both by the summer rains and the annual winter floodwaters of the Okavango Delta. Game drives in this region are incredibly productive, arriving guests often sighting their first game on the trip from airstrip to camp.
The annually flooded grasslands of the Okavango Delta surrounding Little Vumbura Camp are locally referred to as 'melapo' and offer seasonal viewing of elephant, giraffe, impala, sable antelope, kudu, zebra, common waterbuck and reedbuck, tsessebe, wildebeest, red lechwe and cape buffalo. Encounters with hippo and crocodile are common in the waterways. Predators include the wild dog, several resident prides of lion, leopard, cheetah and the african wildcat.
The birding around Little Vumbura Camp is as varied as it is exceptional all year round. In the summer many migrant species are present. Pel's Fishing Owl is regularly seen, with other specials including Wattled Crane, Slaty Egret, Chirping Cisticola, Little Bee-eater, Fan-tailed Widowbird and possibly Rosy-throated Longclaw.
Game drives in open Land Rovers allow you to get close to animals in the savannah areas. Walks around the islands are an opportunity to enjoy Africa from a different perspective. Game viewing is consistently good all year round at Little Vumbura Camp with lion, leopard, elephant, sable and buffalo along with extensive plains game providing an excellent all-round wildlife experience in this remote corner of the Okavango Delta. Overnight for two nights in the six roomed Little Vumbura Camp. Alternate is Duba Plains.
