Lending upon the reputation of the old school Duba Plains camp which is now newly rebuilt... Duba Expedition give you another camp where from you may have the chance to witness the incredible interaction between lion and buffalo.

 

This camp is also newly rebuilt in 2016, beautifully adorned and styled to look a little less permanent. Aside from lion and buffalo the area is good for game viewing and the camp does provide very good game drives together with boating activities depending upon water levels.

 

This really is a stunning camps with a great atmosphere. Our only feeling is that it perhaps provides you what Selinda Explorers gives you in the Selinda area but it is a shame that it is quite a bit more expensive than Explorers.

Wildlife & Activities

 

Wildlife

 

Duba Expedition Camp prides itself on its extraordinary wildlife experiences, and rightly so.  The diverse wildlife experience is renowned with regular sightings of a diverse range of species, including large herds of Red lechwe along with Greater kudu, tsessebe and even giraffe which in previous years has been a rare sighting.

 

Of course, elephant and hippo trudge through the swamps happily, and are regularly seen. Leopard, and nocturnal species such as Brown hyena can be sighted as well. Wildlife is a regular sight right in camp! Birds abound, and the area is reputed as a birdwatcher’s paradise. Okavango ‘specials’ include the rare Wattled crane, Pel’s Fishing owl, White-backed Night heron and Marsh owl.

The Camp

Camp Overview

 

The brand new Duba Expedition Camp sits in the heart of classic Okavango Delta habitat. A matrix of palm-dotted islands, flood plains and woodland, the 77,000-acre private concession typifies the region’s unique landscape. Located here, exclusively, is the six tent Duba Expedition Camp, a wildlife connoisseur’s getaway. Built on a wooded island, connected to the prolific wildlife area by an elaborate set of bridges, the area is the base of many famous wildlife documentaries by National Geographic filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert.

Lodge Layout

 

The main area is under sweeping marquee canvas, on raised decking and consists of an open-concept dining and lounge area which opens to the outdoors on all sides.

 

In the evenings, the fire pit is always a popular spot to enjoy an Amarula and recount the day’s events.

Room Description

 

The intimate camp consists of six expedition-style tents of light airy canvas on slightly raised decking, each with views of the surrounding floodplain.

 

Each tent has a small desk and private verandah plus en-suite facilities consisting of flush loo, double basins and indoor shower. Fans and careful open-air design maintain comfortable climate for rest and relaxation.

Camp Environment

 

Duba Expedition Camp, and the Duba Plains Concession, where it is located, is part of a joint venture partnership between Great Plains Conservation and the Okavango Community Trust, the representative body for five villages in the Okavango Panhandle. This partnership ensures that these communities receive tangible and substantial benefit from using their ancestral land for wildlife conservation. Botswana is a leader in such partnerships, and our working relationship is a testament to this long-standing example of success in this area
