About This Hotel
The Vumbura Plains Camp stress tonic: Recline in your private living room. Take a sip of chilled glass of white wine and watch the sun set over the waving grasses of the savanna. Repeat.
Vumbura Plains Camp sits on the Vumbura Reserve, a nearly 130,000-acre plot dedicated to protecting the plants and wildlife of Botswana's Okavango Delta. The Camp's knowledgeable guides immerse guests in this environment with nature walks, boat excursions, and open-air 4x4 drives. Sightings of lion, leopard, elephant, cheetah, and buffalo are commonplace, giving even photography amateurs a chance at dazzling close-ups.
Situated on two camps on the savanna, the 14 accommodations are delightful examples of conscientiously designed rustic luxury. Three open sides allow panoramas of the stunning landscape, while the tented interiors feature a pleasing blend of local decor and contemporary amenities. The outdoor shower and cooling plunge pool are the la crème de la crème of this combination, matched only by the excellent outdoor Vumbura Plains Camp dining. Here, the friendly staff tames voracious post-safari hunger with wonderfully fresh local cuisine and regional wines.
