Botswana is a landlocked country surrounded by Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe – with a population of just over two million people. Slightly larger than France, the landmass covers 581 730 square kilometres, most of which is desert. The northern regions however, form a striking contrast with the dry Kalahari, where the stunning wetlands of the world-famous Okavango Delta and the diverse habitats of the Chobe and Linyanti add to the wealth of this wonderfully diverse country. The capital city is Gaborone while Maun and Kasane are the safari “hubs”.
Little Vumbura is a glorious little tented camp nestled in an ancient Okavango Delta forest, not far from its sister (and larger) camp – Vumbura Plains Camp. As it is situated north of Mombo in a private reserve, and borders the Moremi Game Reserve, it offers an array of activities on either land or water. This area can only be accessed by aircraft, and if the water levels are high in winter, a mokoro/boat will transfer guests to the camp.
Little Vumbura (and Vumbura Plains) are part of a community participation project that brings the benefits of eco-tourism to the communities that live in around the Okavango Delta, thereby bringing them to the fore of mainstream tourism.
