Secluded Duba Explorers Camp is set amid classic Okavango Delta landscape of floodplains, forested islands and woodland in a vast 81,500-acre private concession – assuring guests of very exclusive wildlife encounters. The camp itself is positioned on a small island surrounded by floodplains, set under a canopy of jackalberry, leadwood and sycamore-fig trees and is only accessible by a gum pole bridge. An intimate camp, the 5 lovely, tented rooms are elevated off the ground and offer superb views over the floodplains. Designed by legendary documentary producers (and avid explorers themselves) Dereck and Beverly Joubert, this beautiful intimate camp embodies the by-gone era and golden age of safari exploration.
The airy, canvas tents feature a spacious bed surrounded by a mosquito net and are furnished with stylish campaign furniture including a writing desk, chest, comfortable chairs and lamps. There is also a restful outdoor deck while the ensuite bathroom has plenty of cupboard space, double vanities and thoughtful little touches including a make-up mirror, bathrobes and slippers.
The main area houses a beautiful dining and lounge area and is furnished in the same manner as the rooms, holding to the camps theme of early expedition-style travel. The canvas walls open out onto a peaceful outdoor deck fitted with comfortable canvas-backed deck chairs that is sometimes used for dining out under the stars. At night, a fire pit (often a popular spot to sit before and after dinner) and hurricane lanterns lend a special ambience to this safari camp.
