Activities at Little Vumbura
Hot Air Balloon Safaris *
Take to the skies in style and soar silently over the rich ecosystem of the Okavango Delta in a hot air balloon. Gaze over scenic splendour, watch elephant playing far below and fly eye-to-eye with an eagle. This experience ends with champagne and snacks (offered mid-May 2021 to mid-September 2021, as well as mid-April 2022 to mid-September 2022).
* This activity is weather permitting and at extra cost.
Little Vumbura - Birding
The birding at Vumbura is as varied as it is exceptional all year round. In the summer many migrant species are present, while other specials which are regularly seen include wattled crane, slaty egret, chirping cisticola, fan-tailed widowbird, pink-backed pelican and possibly rosy-throated longclaw for the dedicated birders.
Little Vumbura - Boating
Water-level dependent, boating is another idyllic form of water wildlife viewing. Sights of hippo and crocodile are common in the waterways.
Little Vumbura - Fishing
Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer seasonally on a catch-and-release basis.
Little Vumbura - Game Drives
Morning and afternoon game drives allow you to get close to animals in the savannah areas where lion, leopard, elephant, sable and buffalo along with extensive plains game roam. Our open 4x4 Land Rovers each accommodate a maximum of seven people allowing each guest a ‘window’ seat.
Little Vumbura - Guided Nature Walks
On request and dependent on the availability of a qualified walking guide, nature walks with skilled, armed guides are wonderful ways of getting close to nature and observing the smaller creatures and plants you miss when travelling by vehicle.
Little Vumbura - Mokoro Excursions
There is no better way of viewing game and exploring the Okavango than by traditional mokoro (dugout canoe) often providing up close and personal sightings of tiny frogs and exciting birdlife.
Little Vumbura - Night Drives
Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during the day. Porcupine, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and lesser bushbaby are just some of these.
