Property Details

Duba Plains Camp converges the peacefulness of a private home and the thrill of the untamed wilderness, giving guests a comfortable base from which to explore. Duba Plains Camp was built in the shade of fig and mangosteen trees to provide refuge from the midday sun, and elevated to capture cool breezes and excellent views.

Six expedition-style tents at Duba Plains Camp are wrapped in canvas, accented by private wood decks and large windows. As isolated as guests are at Duba Plains Camp, the comforts of modern living are not forgotten. En suite baths feature flush toilets, double sinks, and both an indoor or outdoor shower surrounded by nature. Generators provide 24-hour electricity to the camp, and solar technology is used to heat the water for consistent warmth.

Raised platforms connect the tents to the main areas of camp. Relax beneath the thatched roofs of the open-air bar, dining area, and lounge, with evenings spent around the fire pit to relive the adventures of the day. Between game drives, indulge in a dip in the relaxing plunge pool or a massage while overlooking the Delta’s waters.

Explore the 77,000 acres of private reserve on morning and evening game drives in open game vehicles, escorted by skilled guides and trackers. Predators stalk in the forested areas, watching the game that gathers on the open plains in astounding numbers. Common sightings include buffalo, elephant, leopard, hyena, and extraordinary prides of lion. Birders are treated to glimpses of the Slaty egret and wattled crane, and species such as the honey badger, aardvark, and African wildcat can be spotted on night game drives. Activities by boat are also possible during the flood season, May-September. Click here for a glimpse into the Duba Plains Camp safari experience.

Duba Plains is renowned as the location where wildlife photographers and filmmakers Derek and Beverley Joubert made their now famous documentary, Relentless Enemies – chronicling the battle for survival between the lions and buffalo on the plains, and how each species has adapted to this unusual way of life.
