Duba Plains Camp

Accommodation in Okavango Delta

This is the place for you if you’re looking for a very special safari and private Big Five and wildlife sightings. A wildlife connoisseur’s getaway, Duba Plains is ideally situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta.

Owned by Dereck and Beverly Joubert – National Geographic filmmakers, conservationists and explorers – Duba Plains is designed to meld into the landscape and to take advantage of the shapes and textures of shade. Five traditional safari-style tents on raised decking, plus a separate two-bedroom suite, make up this intimate and exclusive camp, where you can relax on your own private deck overlooking the surrounding floodplain and watch a steady stream of wildlife parading past. Each tent has its own private plunge pool and undercover sala (day rest area), as well as a beautifully appointed en-suite bathroom comprising flush toilet, double basins and indoor and outdoor shower and luxurious bathtub. The spacious tents are designed for comfortable climate control and each has a ceiling fan and a comfortable lounge area plus space for private in-room dining, if this is your choice.

The main area – a large raised dining room and a comfortable lounge with private dining areas, wine cellar and library – is spacious and thoughtfully designed for you to be able to settle into a private spot if you choose. A fireplace on a deck extending into the swamps is the camps central gathering place, and early evening sundown cocktails turn into sociable star-lit gatherings under the African night sky.

Great Plains Conservation is the only operator on the concession, an intensely game-rich 77 000-hectare private reserve comprising a matrix of palm-dotted islands, floodplains and woodland. This means that Duba Plains’ guests have the ultimate privilege of private wildlife sightings. Day and night safari game drives take place in game-viewing vehicles specially adapted for the area’s challenging roads, and each day’s game-viewing itinerary is entirely flexible. Guided walks, motorized boating, catch-and-release fishing and a Young Explorer’s programme add depth and interest to a stay at Duba Plains.
