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.
