The remote northern reaches of the Okavango Delta hold Duba Plains Camp, an intimate camp set in among open game-rich grasslands and seasonal floodplains in Botswana. Only accessible by light aircraft, the camp is renowned for its resident lion prides and their unending battles with the thousands of buffalo that roam the area.
These large lions are legendary for hunting in broad daylight and for swimming in the permanent channels running between the islands that dot the landscape. But they are not the only resident wildlife here, and guests can embark on day and night game drives and motorboat trips in search of red lechwe, impala, kudu, tsessebe and large elephant herds. With no required routine, guests can explore the area at their own pace.
Large mangosteen and fig trees provide shade for the five tented rooms plus the Duba Plains Suite which look out over the vast floodplains. Airy lounges and large windows in the tents provide respite from the heat, while a private balcony allows guests to spy the resident wildlife. Relish delicious African cuisine prepared by the camp's executive chefs and pair it with an award-winning South African wine.
