Little Vumbura is an intimate and remote - but eminently comfortable - camp, built on a secluded island in the private Vumbura reserve; which it shares with its more opulent sister-camp, Vumbura Plains. The camp is surrounded by water, both permanent deep channels and seasonal shallower floodplains, with access to good tracts of dry areas of open plains, woodlands and riverine forests. It’s an interesting reserve which has a particularly diverse set of environments within easy reach of the camp, as well as a high density of game.
Our view of Little Vumbura
We’ve been visiting Little Vumbura for many years now and it’s long been a favourite; most especially for the excellent game we’ve consistently seen there. The camp is very comfortable and we’ve had some very good guides and generally good food.
But what we really stands out about Little Vumbura for us, is the reserve. Not only is it an exceptionally pretty area – and thus a great backdrop for photography – but it offers fantastic mekoro and boat trips, as well as game drives that deliver regular, good and varied game viewing.
The main problem has always been that it fills up so fast, and getting space here is always a challenge unless you book a very long way in advance! We have found that when the camp is full - and it regularly is – then, most likely because of the intimate setup, it really does tend to feel so.
