Duba Plains Camp - Okavango Delta in Botswana
The Duba Plains Camp is located in the furthermost reaches of the Okavango Delta. If you are looking for a true, untouched African safari experience, this is for you. Duba Plains Camp is quite possibly the most remote camp in the Okavango Delta, on a private reserve of 30,000 hectares. Duba’s real treat is its exclusivity; it is well-suited for those who want to be far away.
The safari camp is situated on a pristine island surrounded by expansive plains which can be seasonally flooded. Floods usually occur between May and early October, depending on the rain levels in central Africa. Sometimes it can only be accessed by aircraft.
Duba Plains offers many activities: boating and mokoro (dug-out canoes) excursions, game drives in open 4x4 vehicles or walking safaris (at the manager’s discretion). Night drives often provide opportunities to take pictures of Africa’s elusive nocturnal animals in action.
This safari camp has fantastic and diverse game-viewing opportunities, because of the easy access to large islands, floodplains and marshes in the area. It is home to lion, leopard, lechwe, elephants, large buffalo herds, hippos, and even hyena dens can be seen. A large variety of the Okavango Delta’s birdlife can also be found in this area, including wattled cranes and slaty egrets. Watching lion prides hunt their buffalo prey, often during daylight hours, offers extraordinary photo opportunities.
The safari lodge of Duba Plains Camp is small
and therefore very personalized. It accommodates twelve people. There
are six large tented rooms with an en suite bathroom, hot and cold running
water, flush toilet facilities and a veranda overlooking the floodplain.
After a full day of game viewing, you can enjoy the excellent cuisine
in the camp’s comfortable dining room. Duba
Plains Camp offers access to the untouched beauty of southern Africa.
