Home Accommodations Duba Plains Camp

Duba Plains Camp



Location
Okavango Delta, Botswana

Duba Plains is one of the Okavango Delta's most remote camps, located in the furthest reaches of the delta in an exceptionally private 30,000-hectare reserve. The camp is built on an island shaded by large ebony, fig and garcinia trees and surrounded by expansive plains that flood seasonally -- usually from about May to early October, depending on the annual rains in central Africa. Since Duba has access to large islands, floodplains and marshes, the camp offers a diversity of experiences. Duba's real treat is its exclusivity, and it is particularly suited for those who wish a remote and isolated wilderness experience. Duba Plains is small and intimate, accommodating just 12 guests in six large tented rooms, each with an en-suite bathroom with shower and flush toilet facilities as well as a veranda overlooking the floodplain. The dining room, pub and small pool are raised on decking under large riverine trees.

The wildlife at Duba Plains is extensive and fascinating, as the vast, open grasslands are often isolated from the mainland by deep waterways. Four different prides of lions hunt thousands of buffalo almost daily. Hunting is often done during the day, allowing for great photo opportunities. Lechwe, buffalo, elephant, tsessebe and warthog dot the savannah, and hippo concentrate in the deeper channels. There are frequently productive hyena dens in the area that offer delightful hyena cub viewing. Leopard reside on the forested islands, and most of the Okavango Delta's birdlife is found in the area. Birding "specials" like wattled crane and slaty egret are also highights. Guests may choose between day and night game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, walking safaris, and mokoro (poled dugout canoe) excursions, which may be available April through September depending on water levels.
