Duba Explorers Camp
Duba Explorers Camp Main Area in the Okavango Delta

Discover Duba Explorers Camp, an exclusive retreat tucked away in the untouched wilderness of Northern Botswana's Duba Plains concession, ensconced within the breathtaking Okavango Delta.

Nestled in the northeast corner of the reserve, spanning 33,000 hectares, this private haven offers a rare opportunity to immerse oneself in the natural splendour of the Delta's northern reaches. Here, permanent floodplains mingle with seasonal counterparts, while lush grasslands and patches of mopane and acacia woodlands paint the landscape.

Canopies of jackalberry, leadwood, mangosteen, and sycamore fig trees provide year-round shade, as gentle breezes drift through the camp and its guest tents, offering respite from the African sun.


Designed by renowned explorers Dereck and Beverly Joubert, Duba Explorers Camp epitomises the essence of the golden age of safaris and the spirit of adventure. The camp boasts five spacious canvas tents perched on raised decking, exquisitely furnished with campaign writing desks, private verandahs, and en-suite facilities.

Guests awaken to sweeping vistas of the Okavango Delta floodplains, where during the flood season, water channels brim with life amidst flowering water lilies and towering papyrus.

The camp's main area, nestled beneath sweeping marquee canvas on elevated decking, features an open-concept dining and lounge space. Surrounded by scenic floodplains for much of the year, Duba Explorers Camp is accessible only via two gum pole bridges, ensuring an exclusive and secluded experience. Here, guests can unwind on veranda daybeds during siestas, lulled by the tranquil sounds of nature.

Keep an eye out for spotted neck otters and the prolific birdlife during your stay, while the nighttime serenade of hippos and occasional lion roars offer a truly immersive safari experience.

Embark on a journey reminiscent of early adventurers as you explore the water channels of the Ngoga River system by boat or traditional canoes (mekoro), gliding silently through channels frequented by hippos and elephants.

With over 400 bird species, including the vibrant malachite kingfisher, birding enthusiasts are in for a treat. Wildlife viewing drives offer thrilling encounters with resident predators, while guided walks unveil the secrets of the islands, wetlands, and plains.

Guests might even be lucky enough to get a glimpse of a rare sitatunga or an elusive leopard. Enjoy the excitement of catch and release fishing where one can study the various delta fish species up close.

Duba Explorers Camp accommodates a maximum of 10 guests across its five tents and one guide room. Whether you're seeking wildlife encounters, birding expeditions, or the excitement of catch and release fishing, Duba Explorers Camp promises a bespoke safari experience tailored to your preferences. With a flexible schedule and expert guides, your adventure awaits in the heart of the Okavango Delta.
