Little Vumbura is situated on a beautiful island in a private concession in the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta. 




The Vumbura area comprises 60 000 hectares (150 000 acres) in the northern Okavango Delta that includes a diverse mosaic of habitats, from permanent swamp with small palm islands to seasonally inundated floodplains, acacia woodlands, and extensive mopane and Kalahari appleleaf stands. The area is known for its scenic beauty and diversity of wildlife. In addition to large herds of elephant and buffalo in seasonally varying degrees of concentration, majestic sable antelope are a highlight here and share the plains and woodlands with zebra, wildebeest, tsessebe, impala, lechwe, kudu and giraffe. Healthy populations of lion, leopard and spotted hyena occur, while wild dog are a particular feature and cheetah sightings occasional. Birdlife is abundant – Okavango specials such as Rosy-throated Longclaw, Black Coucal and Long-toed Lapwing are present. The concession is leased from five villages through the Okavango Community Trust in a partnership that ensures that the benefits of ecotourism are shared with rural stakeholders.
