Duba Concession, Okavango Delta, Botswana
At a Glance
The more intrepid little brother of Duba Plains is a truly beautiful tented camp with only 5 tents. It is reminiscent of a 1920s safari expedition with brushed copper, old railway sleepers and olive canvas.
It’s a very luxurious camp with an expansive deck looking out over the plains, a well-stocked library and wine cellar.
The Duba Concession is a well-trodden stomping ground for national geographic photographers to get some of the best images of the Delta.
Explore the waterways and plains by boat and vehicle that have been specially adapted to make it easier to capture that perfect shot.
There is such a huge diversity of wildlife here with large numbers of lion, leopard and even wild dogs, and lovely plains game such as tsessebe, lechwe, kudu and giraffe. Later in the season expect huge herds of elephant and fuffalo to stroll past camp.
