Lodge life on this island is quite special
Little Vumbura sits on a beautiful island in a private concession in the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta. Surrounded by water and close to large rivers, it offers both water- and land-based activities, with spectacular and diverse wildlife sightings.
The six tented rooms are shaded by the canopy of an ancient forest. Each well-appointed room, hued in soft neutrals with touches of indigo, has en-suite facilities and a deck with incredible vistas. The main areas welcome the outside in, open-sided pavilions enchantingly lit at night. A plunge pool and reading area overlook the floodplains, and a star deck, across a bridge from the dining area, offers superb stargazing in some of the darkest, least polluted skies on Earth.
Watch a buffalo herd many hundreds-strong as it migrates between islands. Keep a lookout for African wild dogs, a privileged sighting, and for leopards staking their territories. You’ll probably also meet our resident elephant, often seen around the island devouring fruit dropped by the African mangosteen trees. Sit back for a magical glide through the channels on a mokoro, a traditional dugout canoe, or quicken the pace on a boating adventure; with luck, you’ll find the floating bar, or sundowner set-ups on Phi-Phi or Shumba Island. Float high above the floodplains in a hot-air balloon, for a bird’s-eye view of paradise.
In addition to helping to conserve the area, Little Vumbura partners with local communities to share skills, opportunities and the economic benefits of ecotourism.
