Duba Explorers Camp is found in the 77,000 hectare Duba Plains Private Reserve in Botswana's Okavango Delta. The reserve is famous for being the base from which acclaimed film makers and explorers Derek and Beverly Joubert filmed many of their wildlife documentaries, including the film, Relentless Enemies about the interactions between the area's lions and buffalo. The couple now own the camp and had major part in its design and furnishing. The camp's location is one that offers extraordinary wildlife experiences including large herds of elephant and buffalo, lions, leopard and hyena in large numbers as well as hippo, lechwe, kudu, tsessbe and giraffe, to name a few.
Duba Explorers Camp is one of the Delta's most remote camps, renowned for its spectacular wildlife viewing, private intimacy and impeccable service. Surrounded by plains which flood seasonally, the camp is built on a small secluded island. Home to a variety of indigenous trees, including mangosteen and ebony, guests can relax in their shade while enjoying casual game viewing as wildlife pass by.
Guests can expect only 5 tents, all of which offer comfortable accommodation with wooden floors, large beds and en-suite bathrooms, complemented by an apt rusticity. The tents are raised on wooden platforms and offer charming verandas from which to view game.
The Camp provides a number of facilities including a swimming pool, a cosy lounge and dining room. Activities consist of game drives, guided walks and seasonal mokoro (dug-out canoe) rides and boat trips. Guiding is strong and guests are invited to track large buffalo herds in the hopes of spotting lion stalking their prey nearby. Night drives offer an exciting dimension to game viewing, one that can be a true highlight of a stay here.
Duba Explorers Camp is approximately 40 minutes flight from Maun and 1 hour 20 minute flight to Kasane. The camp is a 5 minute drive from the airstrip.
Early morning and late afternoon/early evening game drives in an open 4x4 vehicle, guided walks, canoeing, mokoro and boating (subject to water levels)
