Duba Plains Camp
Duba Plains is a remote camp located in Botswana's Okavango Delta. It is located in the 30,000 hectare Kwedi Reserve, in the extreme northern region of the Delta. The camp is situated on an island, surrounded by expansive seasonally flooded plains and shaded by tall ebony, fig, and garcinia trees. The camp is small and intimate, with accommodation in six tented rooms. Each of the tents has an en-suite bathroom and a veranda overlooking the floodplain. The dining room and bar area is raised on decks, and there is a pool with a view. The camp offers a variety of activities, ranging from mokoro and boating excursions to game drives in open 4 x 4 vehicles and walking safaris.
Every detail of this five-star luxury hotel captures the elegance of a bygone era, while echoing the stunning diversity of the African bush. Set in a lush riverine belt and perched almost on the lip of Victoria Falls, this hotel provides a secluded haven. Guests will hear the roar of the Falls and see the mist rising up into the heavens. All guestrooms are luxuriously furnished, with freshly cut flowers, crisp white linen and large comfortable beds.
Overlooking the Selinda Spillway—-a waterway that links Botswana's Okavango Delta to the Linyanti and Kwando marshes, rivers, and floodplains--this elegant property includes nine thatched, elevated tents with hardwood floors, a lounge area, an en suite bathroom with full sized stone baths and antique showers, fine linens, and an extensive veranda. The main lounge is an ideal spot for watching wildlife. There is a raised outdoor dining deck for evening meals under the stars. Wildlife and nature drives are conducted by resident guides in rugged and open 4x4 Toyota Landcruisers with removable canvas roof tops. The vehicles have excellent all round visibility allowing for great photo opportunities.
