Stay at Vumbura Plains Camp

North of Botswana’s Moremi National Park is a series of large floodplains dotted with small palm islands and interspersed with large forested areas. Here, the 94km2 (60,000-hectare) Vumbura Reserve known for wonderfully varied and high densities of game is home to the two adjacent camps that make up Vumbura Plains. Imagine a luxury hotel of contemporary, minimalist design, deep in the Delta, and you’re nearly there.

Wilderness Vumbura Plains comprises two smaller camps, Vumbura Plains North and Vumbura Plains South. The camps are connected by raised wooden walkways.

Vumbura Plains South has six twin-bedded tents and Vumbura Plains North has six twin-bedded tents and two family units. The family units consist of two rooms with their own bathrooms and entrances, separated by a deck. Each of the luxury, spacious and contemporary tents are under thatch and raised on a deck. The bed is situated in the middle of the room offering views out of the tent, en-suite facilities with a separate toilet, outdoor shower and private plunge pools.

During the winter months, hot water bottles and extra blankets are provided. Soaps, shampoos and insect repellents are also supplied in each tent.

The Pitchers

We had the most amazing time! John Barclay and his team were very special and the mobile safari exclusive and superb. Moremi was very quiet with few other tourists – no more than a dozen other vehicles seen in four days. Macatoo was also excellent with good riding and game. We were so grateful for the help that you offered when our BA flights went wrong. Many thanks again for the superb service and recommendations which made for a great holiday.
