OVERVIEW

Escaping to a private island is possible at Duba Plains Camp. Built on a small outcrop in the northern Okavango Delta, this wildlife paradise of ilala palms, wide floodplains and productive woodland is a safari lover’s dream. Built to evoke the 1920s (but with modern necessities like Wi-Fi and electricity in place), Duba Plains is all in the details, like reclaimed railway sleepers used for decking.

The wine cellar yields perfect choices to enjoy with meals taken alfresco next to your private plunge pool, which has panoramic vistas over the floodplain. In addition to game drives, you can enjoy scenic helicopter flips, boating and cultural excursions to understand how villagers live with elephants while children can connect with the Young Explorers programme.
