Vumbura’s prime location means that visitors have the chance to spot just about any of the iconic species found in the Okavango. In fact, the Vumbura team takes the game-viewing experience so seriously that guests can safari on land, on water, on foot and even in the air.
While intimate morning and afternoon game drives are a highlight in the daily Vumbura routine, adventurous guests can opt for a night drive, spotting nocturnal animals and enjoying the sights and sounds of the bush after dark. It’s recommended that you mix your game drives up with wildlife-viewing excursions on a traditional mokoro (type of canoe). Aside from the deeply relaxing experience of floating through the delta, this also allows for the opportunity to spot some of the region’s smaller but no less spectacular creatures, including colourful frogs and striking waterbirds. Vumbura also has two boats for those wanting to explore the area more extensively by water. Last but by no means least, a traditional nature walk can be a wonderfully mindful and personal way of enjoying the smaller surprises that may pass you by when travelling by any other means.
As if all of this wasn’t enough, those looking for a truly memorable experience can soar over the Delta in a hot air balloon, enjoying a bird’s eye view of the unique ecosystem and spotting large wildlife from far above.
On the rare occasion when not enjoying some form of spectacular safari experience, Vumbura visitors can enjoy a spot of seasonal catch-and-release fishing, exceptional birding all year long, and immersions in the culture of a traditional Okavango village.
