Duba Explorers Camp
Okavango Delta, Duba Plains Reserve
Duba Explorers Camp is tucked away in the northeast corner of the Duba Plains concession, a 33 000 hectares private reserve in the Okavango Delta. Due to its location at the Okavango Delta’s northern reaches, the surroundings are dominated by the permanent floodplain, interspersed with seasonal floodplains and grasslands and pockets of mopane and acacia woodlands.
Duba Explorers Camp is situated on an island surrounded by the pristine Okavango Delta and enjoys its separate traversing area, separated from Duba Plains Camp. Under a canopy of mature jackalberry, leadwood, mangosteen, and sycamore-fig trees, the camp has year-round shade. The camp’s location provides clear, unobstructed views across the surrounding water channels and allows cool breezes through the camp and guest tents.
Duba Explorers, part of Great Plains’ Explorers Collection and designed by Dereck and Beverly Joubert, explorers themselves, embodies the golden age of safaris and the spirit of exploration. The camp consists of five airy canvas tents, each raised on decking, stylishly furnished with a campaign writing desk, private verandah, and en-suite facilities. Guests wake up to panoramic views of the Delta floodplains and, during the flood season, the water channels link to open water filled with flowering water lilies and tall papyrus. The main area is set under sweeping marquee canvas, on raised decking with an open-concept dining and lounge area.
Being part of a floodplain for most of the year, the camp is on an island surrounded by beautiful landscapes and watercourses. The camp is accessible only by a gum pole bridge. During your siesta, lounge on the daybed on your veranda, absorbing the peacefulness and tranquillity of your surroundings. During the flood season, you might even be lucky to catch sight of spotted neck otters swimming and eating. Listen out for the prolific birdlife. At night, let the hippos sing you to sleep. Sometimes, the roar of a lion cracks through the night as he calls out to his pride.
