One of the Delta's most remote camps, Duba Plains is famed for its huge herds of buffalo and prides of lion. It is a small, intimate camp perched on an island in a private 30,000 hectare reserve in the furthermost reaches of the Delta, surrounded by expansive seasonally flooded plains and shaded by tall ebony, fig and mangosteen trees.
Accommodation is made up of six roomy tents with an en-suite bathroom, an outside shower and a veranda overlooking the floodplain. The dining room and bar area is raised on platforms along with a swimming pool complete with a view.
The wildlife at Duba is justly considered spectacular, and well known for its classic lion versus buffalo encounters that have been documented by National Geographic. In addition, large herds of elephant feed on the islands, hippo concentrate in deeper channels and leopard are found on the forested islands. Birdlife is abundant and impressive, with Okavango specials such as Slaty Egrets and Wattled Cranes being found in the area.
A variety of activities include game day and night drives, walks and possible mokoro excursions in times of good floods, usually only between May and September.
