Duba Explorers

An intimate, traditional space where hearts and spirits
find inspiration in a history rich with extraordinary wildlife stories…



Duba Explorers Camp is a wildlife connoisseur’s getaway; situated on an island in the northern reaches of the 33,000 hectare Duba concession and surrounded on all sides by pristine Okavango Delta. This intimate camp, with its own private traversing area within the concession and away from that of Duba Plains Camp, consists of five expedition-style tents of light airy canvas on slightly raised decking, each with views of the surrounding floodplain.

Each tent is stylishly furnished and designed by Great Plains Conservation Founders and National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence Dereck and Beverly Joubert, using their unique sensibilities to capture a spirit of exploration. Each room has a campaign writing desk and private verandah as well as en-suite facilities consisting of flush loo, double vanities and indoor shower. Fans and open air design maintain a comfortable climate for rest and relaxation. The main area is open-air, under sweeping marquee canvas, on raised decking and consists of an open-concept dining and lounge area.

Duba Explorers Camp prides itself on its extraordinary wildlife experiences, and rightly so. Guests of the camp enjoy regular sightings of a diverse range of species, including lechwe, kudu, tsessebe and giraffe. Herds of elephants and buffalo move around the camp and hippo trudge through the swamps creating their channels and paths daily. Lions, leopards and even African wild (painted) dogs are spotted regularly. Birds abound, and the area is a birdwatcher’s paradise. Enjoy guided walks, mekoro and boating opportunities or early morning and late afternoon wildlife drives and revel in the one of the most stunning and varied wildlife areas in the world.
