One of Botswana’s most extravagant and luxurious safari camps, the camp is set in a private 81,000-acre concession in the heart of the magical Okavango Delta. Duba Plains Camp is an atmospheric safari camp renowned for its personalised service and extraordinary, intimate wildlife encounters. It is also the spot where legendary conservationists and documentary filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert filmed the remarkable “Relentless Enemies” documentary – showcasing the relationship between a particular pride of lions and herd of buffalo.
This intimate camp is comprised of just 5 beautifully appointed guest tents and one opulent 2-bedroom suite. The tents evoke the classic safari style of the 1920’s and feature a lovely lounge area and spacious ensuite bathroom; fitted with double vanities, indoor and outdoor showers and a beautiful bathtub. There is even a generous space for guests to dine indoors in private while ceiling fans keep the air cool on warm afternoons. Each tent also has its own spacious outdoor deck boasting a plunge pool, sun lounges and a shaded sala complete with couches and coffee table – all overlooking the magnificent Okavango landscape.
The suites are connected by raised walkways to central main area, which is also elevated and consists of an oversized lounge, restaurant, library and well-stocked wine cellar. The lounge and dining area opens out onto an expansive outdoor deck which features a central fire pit surrounded by comfortable couches and chairs. The deck is shaded by giant ebony trees and has ample space for outdoor dining. The views from the deck are sensational and is a popular spot for guests to gather with pre-dinner cocktails and swap stories at the end of each day.
