Duba Plains Camp
About Duba Plains Camp
Duba Plains Camp, located in the northern reaches of Botswana's famed Okavango Delta and just north of the Moremi Game Reserve, is a private 77,000 acre reserve.
Inaccessible for most of the year by any means other than aircraft, it is this remoteness that solidifies Duba Plains as the soul of wild Africa.
Duba offers just 12 guests an idyllic all-round Okavango experience throughout the year, with vast, seasonally inundated floodplains, which are home to huge herds of buffalo.
Complemented by permanent channels and a number of larger wooded islands, wildlife diversity is guaranteed. This camp prides itself on the intimacy of home with all the touches of personal service and a superb safari experiences.
Whether in summer, winter, spring or autumn, Duba Plains is a year round delight, offering large concentrations of plains game congregating on the open plains, while predators lurk in the denser forests on the edge preparing to launch into a hunt.

Baggage restrictions: For safety and because space is restricted on aircraft, baggage in charter aircraft is restricted to a maximum of 20 kg per person in a soft bag in Botswana; this includes camera equipment and carry-on baggage. Should guests arrive with excess baggage without prior warning their baggage could be delayed as baggage may have to be flown into camp at a later stage at considerable extra cost to the guest. However, should the guest know in advance that the baggage will exceed the limit, an extra seat can be booked for the bags on the aircraft, at an additional cost.
Wild Animals and the wilds: Please be aware that these safaris may take guests into close contact with wild animals. Attacks by wild animals are rare, but no safari into the African wilderness can guarantee that this will not occur. Neither the company, nor their employees, nor agents can be held responsible for any injury or incident on the safari. Please note that all our camps are unfenced. Please also note that these safaris will take you over dirt tracks and across remote plains in some of the most remote parts of Africa. If this is not what you are after, then there are many more civilized parts of the world that are more suited to your travel.
