A little gem in the Delta

Little Vumbura was a favourite among many travellers and guides we met. We can understand why as it has water and land game viewing and the size of the camp with just six rooms makes it feel friendly. We saw a huge range of birds and animals here.

The rooms are huge and very luxurious for the bush, though our room (no 3) was not very light and the deck did not get any sun at all during the siesta period - so was actually quite cold to sit on due to a stiff wind on some days.

As I have commented before, nobody uses the pool as the water is so cold. This is a shame given the expense of installing the facility. Can't it be heated - solar power should not be too expensive.

Extremely nice management team and guides. And we enjoyed the company of our fellow guests.

Expert Africa comments

These travellers visited Botswana in its coolest time of year, and there’s a valuable general point to note here: nights in Botswana in August, and mornings and evenings too, can be very cold.

The Little Vumbura team commented that as it gets hotter, into September and October, the pool heats up – but they’ll keep the idea of solar heating in mind for their coolest months.

As temperatures pick up (as I write on 1st Oct, they are above 40 degrees C), a slightly cooler, more shaded room will be really lovely – and ideal for someone who is less used to the heat. If you would like to stay in this room, please ask us to request it for you when you book.

Idyllic safari at Little Vumbura

This was our favorite camp. The newly constructed camp is beautiful and luxurious, the tents perfectly sited. The staff is capable and very friendly; especial kudos to Dudley and Molly. Our guide, Emmanuel, was knowledgeable and respectful of the animal life as well as of his guests. The game drives, boat and mokoro rides, were just the right length. The quiet time on the water was a pleasant contrast to game drives, as was the morning walk one day. We arrived back in camp in the evening with enough time to gather ourselves before dinner.
