Duba Plains Introduction

Duba Plains camp is in a remote un touched area of the Okavango Delta and is just north of the Moremi Game Reserve. Surrounded by vast floodplains as well as wooded islands provide extraordinary bird watching and game viewing. Superb scenery, open plains and permanent waterways, coupled with spectacular birdlife, predator and prey interaction as well as some of the most consistent wildlife viewing in the region make it a legend among safari connoisseurs. The camp’s small size ensures privacy.

Tucked under the cool shade of large mangosteen and fig trees and looking across the reserve’s vast floodplains, the six traditional “Meru-Style” sturdy canvas en-suite tents are raised off the ground on wooden decks. This enables stunning views across the floodplain as well as capturing fresh, cool breezes. Each of the tents has a private verandah leading to large double doors, which enter the canvas-constructed tents. High ceilings with fans and large windows bring the outside in, while still affording ample privacy. The en-suite dressing area with a double basin vanity, indoor and outdoor showers and a flush toilet provide all the home comforts, with appropriate style and luxury. All hot water is available 24 hours a day and is solar heated. The main lounge, bar and dining room are intimate and open-air, built under vaulted thatch roofs. An outdoor dining area for brunches and a large plunge pool are tucked away from the main area, offering a refreshing afternoon retreat. And of course, the evening open-air fireplace hosts stories of each day's adventures.

Duba Plains Game Viewing and Activities

The lions, renowned for their pursuits of the buffalo herds, are a formidable force. It’s a perfect recipe: the open plains’ nutritious grasses coupled with the Delta’s clean clear waters to create the perfect habitat for the buffalo. Where these herds abound, the lions are not far behind. Contrary to usual behavior, the Duba lions are most often active during the day hours and many of their famous buffalo hunts occur in broad daylight. The prides occur in extraordinary concentrations and in all combinations of ages and sexes - from young playful cubs to old, wise parents and relatives.

Apart from this interaction, the age-old conflict between lion and spotted hyena is also an interesting sight. Birdlife is impressive, with many Okavango Delta specials such as Rosy-throated Longclaw, Slaty Egret and Wattled Crane being found in the area. Herds of elephant can also be seen feeding on the islands and hippo concentrate in deeper channels. Tsessebe and blue wildebeest dot the plains, while red lechwe are found on the wetter floodplain fringe. A variety of activities includes day and night game drives as well as guided nature walks. Mokoro trips are also available in times of good floods - usually only between May and September.
