Tucked away in the fertile northerly reaches of the Okavango Delta, the camp supports the largest concentration of biomass in the Delta, and is one of the first to receive the annual flood waters. Typified by palm-dotted islands and flood plains, the terrain provides a rich habitat for large numbers of buffalo, red lechwe, lion and increasing numbers of leopard. Reopened in March 2017 after a complete rebuild on the original site, Duba Plains features a raised central dining area with an interactive chef’s kitchen, wine cellar and library. The five luxury safari tents are equipped with a viewing deck, bathroom with inside and outside showers and private plunge pool. Guests in the two-bedroom Duba Plains Suite having their own private game drive vehicle, guide, butler and chef. National Geographic filmmakers and conservationists, Dereck and Beverly Joubert, chose this as their base – Great Plains Conservation being the only operator in the concession, offering guests an exclusive private wildlife viewing experience. Photographers will appreciate the complimentary use of professional cameras, custom-accessorised safari vehicles and the specially adapted boat with swivel chairs and camera mounts, with night game drives and Delta walks providing excellent picture opportunities.

The best time to visit Botswana for game viewing in the delta areas is during the dry winter season from April to October when animals are drawn to water sources. Days are warm and sunny although nights can drop below freezing – in October temperatures can be particularly hot. The Okavango area tends to be more moderate than the Kalahari where seasonal differences are more extreme and activities vary according to wet (November – March) and dry (April – October) seasons.
