WILDERNESS Little Vumbura is an exclusive tented lodge located on a very small island in the heart of the beautiful Vumbura Concession in the northern Okavango Delta.

Wilderness Little Vumbura is an old favourite and offers a really idyllic, exclusive and all round wonderful Okavango experience. The arrival by boat (a 5 minute ride from the boat station or a 15 minute ride from the airstrip when the flood is in) adds to the feeling of escapism whilst the ambience in camp is peaceful and relaxed. The accommodation is very comfortable but not over the top and the camp retains an intimate, close to nature feel, with friendly staff and a high level of personal service. The Vumbura Concession is varied and whilst super for game viewing, it also offers good wetland Okavango experiences with boating, mekoro excursions and fishing (March to December) all possible. This makes Little Vumbura one of the best lodges from which to enjoy the full range of Okavango habitats and activities. Due to its popularity, the lodge is expensive, especially in high season from June to October.


Wilderness Little Vumbura caters for up to 14 guests in six luxuriously appointed tents, each privately positioned on wooden decks looking out over the floodplains of the delta. Each open-plan tent has a spacious sleeping area, inside lounge area…


The Vumbura private concession is extremely exclusive with some 230 sq. miles of pristine big game territory and waterways to explore. The habitat is a wonderful mix or permanent waterways, seasonal floodplains, mature woodland, scrub bush…
