Open 4×4 Land Rovers allow close proximity to animals in the savannah and forested areas. The Vumbura area is possibly the only area in the Okavango where one can see red lechwe and sable antelope on the same game drive. lion, leopard, elephant, cheetah and buffalo, and all the plains animals are seen in this area and therefore affords an excellent all-round wildlife experience in a remote and private part of the Okavango. Birding is great with large varieties and quantities. Walks, mekoro’s and boating give you the opportunity to enjoy Africa from a different perspective. Night drives are possible nearly all year, but may be restricted for a few months if there are extremely high flood levels. Walking safaris are a must for anyone – getting close to nature with a knowledgeable guide should not be missed. The mekoro safaris are also excellent as well as motor boating through the Delta’s lagoons and channels. For those who enjoy fishing, Vumbura is one of the Delta’s best areas to catch tiger fish, bream and tilapia.
