duba plains camp
Northern Okavango Delta
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, as it is known for the titanic clashes between buffalo and lions. It was the setting for 'Relentless Enemies', an award-winning National Geographic documentary that records the classic interaction between the two species.
Duba Plains is a traditional tented safari camp with elegant and spacious tents reached along sandy pathways. Each of the 5 large, tented rooms has an en suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers and a veranda overlooking the floodplain. The tents have wooden doors and wide mosquito-netting windows that let in a breeze making the rooms wonderfully cool.
The main area of Duba Plains Camp comprises a large split-level deck overlooking a floodplain. A large lounge area with a 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 where, after dinner each night, drinks and stories are enjoyed around the fire. A small plunge pool with sun loungers has a beautiful view of the surrounding floodplain.
