duba plains camp
Northern Okavango Delta
Duba Plains is known for the titanic clashes between buffalo and lion and was the setting for ‘Relentless Enemies’, an award-winning National Geographic documentary that records the classic interaction between the two species.
Duba Plains is built on an island in the Okavango Delta, shaded by large ebony, fig and mangosteen trees and surrounded by expansive plains which are seasonally flooded. Duba is highly recommended for guests interested in predator interaction.
The main area of Duba Plains Camp comprises a large split level deck overlooking a floodplain. A large lounge area with small library and bar is decorated with various traditional Okavango crafts. Up the stairs is a tea and coffee station and a large dining table, where dinners are served. Set on a wooden deck, is the boma and campfire pit. Each night, after dinner, drinks and stories are enjoyed around the fire. A small plunge pool with sun loungers has a wonderful view of the surrounding floodplain. Duba Plains Camp has 220v generator powered electricity.
Duba Plains is a traditional tented safari camp with elegant and spacious tents reached along sandy pathways. Each of the six large tented rooms has an en suite bathroom with shower and flush toilet facilities, an outdoor shower, as well as a veranda overlooking the floodplain. Comfortable wooden director’s chairs and a small table are situated on the balcony. The tents have wooden doors and wide mosquito-netting windows let in a breeze, which makes the rooms wonderfully cool. Fans are also available in each room.
