Duba Plains Camp
Duba Plains Concession, western Okavango Delta
Scheduled to reopen in March 2017 Duba Plains Camp joins Duba Expedition Camp in the Duba Concession at the heart of the Okavango Delta. The camp will comprise five traditional safari tents along with a two bedroom Duba Plains suite.
The Duba Concession is over 77 000 acres and includes palm fringed islands, expansive floodplains and a variety of woodland all typical of the delta. These diverse habitats allow the concession to be particularly rich in wildlife with the sheer volume of game considered comparable to the Maasai Mara. Owned by the National Geographic filmmakers, conservationists and explorers, Dereck and Beverly Joubert, the concession features in many of their wildlife documentaries and prides itself on providing close exposure to extraordinary wildlife, from predators such as lions and leopards to elephants and buffalo. The concession is also known for interesting Kalahari species like Aardwolf and Pangolins.
The camp’s tents are on raised platforms overlooking flood plains allowing guests to experience a steady stream of wildlife. Each tent will have an expansive lounge area, private veranda with plunge pool and en-suite facilities. Tents have ceiling fans with careful design are able to maintain comfortable climate for rest and relaxation.
The spacious main guest area includes a raised dining room, comfortable lounge, wine cellar and library. A fire deck serves as a central gathering point and reaches out over the delta.
