Duba Expedition Camp

Location
Okavango Delta, Botswana

Duba Expedition Camp is one of the Okavango Delta's most remote camps, located in the furthest reaches of the delta in an exceptionally private 77,000-acre reserve. The area is the famous setting of many wildlife documentaries by National Geographic filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert. 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 separate shower and flush toilet as well as a veranda overlooking the floodplain. The intimate central lounge and dining area sit beneath marquis canvas atop a large raised deck with 360-degree views of the wilderness beyond. Before dinner, guests can enjoy a beverage and swap stories around the campfire under the stars.

The wildlife at Duba Plains is extensive and fascinating, as the vast, open grasslands are often isolated from the mainland by deep waterways. Red lechwe, greater kudu, 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 Pel's fishing owl are also highights. Guests may choose between day and night game drives in open 4x4 vehicles and boating excursions, typically available April through September depending on water levels.
