Duba Plains Camp sits in the north west of the Okavango Delta among a matrix of palm-dotted islands, flood plains and woodland on a 33,000 hectare private reserve. It is also the place that Great Plains Conservation co-founders, National Geographic filmmakers, conservationists and explorers, Dereck and Beverly Joubert, chose for their home base.
Why It’s a Wild Again Favourite
The 5 bespoke tents are designed to blend into the landscape and evoke the classic African safari style of the 1920’s. All the rooms are raised on recycled railway-sleeper decking and with stunning views of the surrounding floodplain and the steady stream of wildlife parading past. It’s renowned for the being the heartland of the intense battles between the age-old enemies, the lions and buffalo. The lions are up to 15 percent larger than other lions from moving through the water channels and these are renowned for being highly active during the day. High densities of elephant, buffalo, lechwe and leopard and unusual Kalahari species like aardwolf and pangolin make it a wildlife mecca.
