If you have ever wanted to live like a real-world Swiss Family Robinson, Little Vumbura is your kind of place. Located on an island, the property is leased from local villages, ensuring that local people share in the benefits of ecotourism.
With 6 tented suites connected to each other and the main lodge by wooden walkways the entire property has a storybook feel. Vumbura is one of the best places for viewing sable and wild dogs and the variety of local frogs is astounding as might be expected given all the water and wetlands in and near camp.
A pool and reading areas overlook the floodplains and a stargazing deck it perfect for an after dinner drink under the night sky. Boat and Land Rover game viewing excursions are a staple of any stay here.

Vumbura is an intimate, small Swiss Family Robinson-style traditional camp with all the whimsical style that suggests. It may be the best place to see sable and wild dog.
Surrounded as it is by water and lying close to large rivers, water-based activities are a focus with mekoro traversing the floodplains under the guidance of experienced polers, and motor boats plying the permanent channels. Wildlife viewing and birding is consistently good all year. Game drives in open Land Rovers explore the savanna areas. Walks around the islands are an opportunity to enjoy Africa from a different perspective.
The Vumbura Concession is leased from five villages through the Okavango Community Trust in a partnership that ensures that the benefits of ecotourism are shared with rural stakeholders.
