Okavango Delta, Kwedi Private Concession

Luxury

From US$1,293

Lodge Description

Purpose
The Vumbura Concession is leased from remote rural communities organised under the Okavango Community Trust. The result of this partnership includes socio-economic benefits, livelihood diversification, and benefits from training and skills development for the people of the villages – as well as more positive attitudes to tourism and conservation.

Place
Little Vumbura is situated on a wooded island and accessible only by boat, the epitome of island living in the midst of the Delta. Water-based activities are a focus, with mekoro and boats plying the channels. Wildlife viewing and birding is consistently good all year round via game drives through the savannah areas and walks around the islands.

Wildlife
The annually flooded grasslands of the Okavango Delta surrounding Vumbura Plains are locally referred to as 'melapo' and offer good seasonal viewing of elephant, giraffe, impala, sable antelope, kudu, zebra, common waterbuck and reedbuck, tsessebe, wildebeest, red lechwe and Cape buffalo. Hippo and crocodile are common in the waterways. Predators include the African wild dog, several resident prides of lion, as well as leopard, cheetah and African wildcat. Birding is exceptional all year round.

Accommodation
Little Vumbura has six beautiful tented rooms, each with views over the waving grasses of the surrounding floodplains. A pool and reading area overlook the floodplains and a star deck leads off the dining area.

Number of Tents
This camp can accommodate 12 guests

6 x units in total comprising: 5 x twin-bedded tented accommodations each with two three quarter beds. 1 x family tent; with two three quarter beds in each bedroom (consisting of two inter-leading rooms, with their own bathroom and entrance, sharing a deck).
