Providing incredible levels of luxury in a stunning setting on the annually flooded grasslands of the Okavango Delta in Botswana, Vumbura Plains Camp offers unrivalled access to big game and a thrillingly diverse range of wildlife.
Beautifully appointed suites
Marvel at the panoramic vista afforded by your luxury suite, raised off the ground on a wooden platform, and sumptuously furnished in soft fabrics and local textiles. Take a dip in your private plunge pool, relax in your spacious 'sala', indulge in a soothing massage or join your fellow guests in the beautifully appointed dining and relaxation areas. Your culinary experience here couldn't be further from 'camping simplicity'; expect sophisticated dishes and a wonderful selection of drinks, all served in a setting with the most magical natural backdrop.
Fabulous range of wildlife
Locally referred to as 'melapo', Vumbura Plains is a mix of water and dry land. It is this variety of habitat which provides such exciting opportunities to see the parade of water-loving lechwe splashing through the reeds, rare sable antelope out on the dry savannah, and hippo and crocodile on the waterways. With a high concentration of leopards, lions, elephants, cheetah, wild dog and buffalo in the region, and prolific bird species too, you will be sure of an amazing all-round wildlife experience here.
Game drives and balloon rides
Relish the adrenaline of night game drives in pursuit of the big sightings, get close and personal with aquatic life on a mokoro boat ride, feel the African plains under your feet on a nature walk or, for the ultimate safari experience, take to the skies in a hot air balloon and fly over the Okavango Delta in peaceful silence to see what wildlife you can spot.
At Vumbura Plains Camp, you will fall in love with Africa's natural beauty and its incredible wildlife.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
