Duba Plains Camp (Okavango
Duba Plains is one of the Okavango Delta's most remote
camps, located in the furthermost reaches of the Okavango
The camp is situated on an island shaded by large ebony,
fig and garcinia trees and surrounded by expansive plains
which are occasionally flooded.
Duba is small and intimate, accommodating only 10 people,
in six large tented rooms, therefore guests receive a highly
Each room has en-suite bathroom, with shower and flush
toilet facilities. Each tent has a verandah overlooking the
floodplain. The dining room and pub are raised on decking
under large riverine trees. The camp boasts a small pool as well.
Game Viewing / Activities:
Since Duba has access to large islands, floodplains and
marshes, the camp offers a diversity of experiences. Duba's
real treat is its exclusivity and it is suited to those who
want to be far away...
Guests may choose between game drives in open 4x4
vehicles, mekoro excursions and walking safaris. The
wildlife at Duba Plains has traditionally been fascinating.
As the vast open grasslands and floodplains are often
isolated from the mainland by deep waterways, the variety of
animals is not as high as in other areas within the
Okavango. However, Duba Plains has more than made up for
this as it has been a high impact game viewing area.
Thousands of buffalo are hunted almost daily by two
different prides of lions. Often the hunting has been during
the day - so our guests have had great photo opportunities.
Lechwe, buffalo, elephant, tsessebe and warthog dot the
savannah and hippo concentrate in the deeper channels. We
often have productive hyaena dens in the area that offer
great hyaena cub viewing. Leopard are found on the forested
islands. Most of the Okavango Delta's birdlife is found in
the area and birding "specials" like wattled crane and slaty
egret are often seen.
Wildlife depends on water levels... The large herds of
buffalo and Sable are the Lion's main prey. Lechwe dot the
savannah and Elephant feed on the islands. Hippo concentrate
in the deeper channels when the water levels are up, and
Leopard are found around the islands. Most of the Delta's
birds are found in the area as well.
The Okavango Community Trust:
Zimbabwe's famous "Campfire" principles have been put
into place at Duba Plains. The villagers who live outside
the Delta have formed the Okavango Community Trust.
They have been given this area to administer by the
government as a photographic Tourism preserve. The Trust
accrues significant financial benefits, employment and
training from Duba Plains, which filters down to the
villagers who live north of the Okavango.
