Little Vumbura is an intimate and remote but eminently comfortable camp, built on a secluded island in the private Vumbura Reserve. 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. The camp is very comfortable and we've had some very good guides and generally good food. But what really stands out is the Vumbura Reserve. Not only is it an exceptionally pretty area – and thus a great backdrop for photography – but it offers fantastic mokoro and boat trips, as well as game drives that deliver regular, good and varied game viewing. Unfortunately, Little Vumbura fills up fast, and getting space here is always a challenge unless you book a very long way in advance. Hence it’s regularly full, and at those times the camp’s sense of intimacy is somewhat lost.
