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

Duba Explorers Camp in Northern Botswana is tucked away in the northeast corner of the Duba Plains concession, a 33 000 hectares private reserve in the Okavango Delta. Due to its location at the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta, the surroundings are dominated by permanent floodplain, interspersed with seasonal floodplains and grasslands and pockets of mopane and acacia woodlands. Under a canopy of mature jackalberry, leadwood, mangosteen and sycamore fig trees the camp has year-round shade. The camp’s location provides clear, unobstructed views across the surrounding water channels and allows cool breezes through the camp and guest tents.

The camp, part of our Explorers Collection and designed by Dereck and Beverly Joubert, explorers themselves, embodies the golden age of safaris and the spirit of exploration. The camp consists of five tents of airy canvas on raised decking stylishly furnished with campaign writing desk, private verandah and en-suite facilities. Guests wake up to panoramic views of the Delta floodplains and, during the flood season, the water channels link to open water filled with flowering water lilies and tall papyrus. The main area is set under sweeping marquee canvas, on raised decking with an open-concept dining and lounge area. Being part of a floodplain for most of the year, the camp is on an island surrounded by beautiful landscapes and water courses. The camp is accessible only by two, gum pole bridges. During your siesta, lounge on the daybed on your veranda, absorbing the peacefulness and tranquillity of your surroundings. During the flood season you might even be lucky to catch sight of spotted neck otters swimming and eating. Listen out for the prolific birdlife. At night, let the hippos sing you a to sleep. Sometimes, the roar of a lion cracks through the night as he calls out to his pride.

During a stay at Duba Explorers Camp guests step into the shoes of the early adventurers. Explore the water channels associated with the Ngoga River system by boat or traditional canoes (mekoro), meandering through channels created by hippos and elephant. The mekoro allows you to glide silently through the channel systems and experience an undisturbed water world around you. With over 400 bird species, birding is unsurpassed, with spectacular species like the malachite kingfisher zipping past you in a burst of colour. Vehicle safaris in this paradise allow for exciting encounters with the predators who are resident in the area. On guided walks explore the islands, wetlands and plains, following the tracks and interpreting the signs of the wild. 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.
