We stayed at Vumbura Plains Camp for a long weekend, what an amazing experience. The rangers were fantastic and we saw plenty animals. The accommodation is very luxurious. A big negative is that we chose this particular camp because it was advertised that you can do boat game drives, go on mokoros and land game drives. It was a huge hassle to get a boat ride and we had to get other people to join our boat otherwise they wouldn't take us. We couldn't get a mokoro ride as there was no one to take us and we would have to have given up a game drive for that (we were told we could do that over and above). I would definitely go back but knowing that it is only land based game drives.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Vumbura Plains, a luxurious retreat of contemporary design, seems to float on a sea of waving reeds in the midst of a large floodplain. The sumptuous rooms, each with its own plunge pool and sala, are uniquely designed, spacious and raised on wooden decks to take in a wide-angled vista. Because the area is a mix of water and dry land, wildlife is diverse, so water-loving lechwe splash through the reeds, while rare sable antelope can be seen in the dry savannah. Lion, leopard, elephant, cheetah, wild dog and buffalo along with plains game and prolific birds provide an excellent all-round wildlife experience. • 14 tents • 100% solar • day and night game drives • village visit • mokoro • boat • nature walks • catch-and-release fishing • spa ... more less
