Duba Plains Camp is a luxury safari camp situated in a remote area of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Duba Plains is located in a private 30,000 hectare reserve and therefore night drives and walking safaris are permissible. Duba Plains is a highly recommended safari destination and is famous for its lion prides and a huge herd of Cape Buffalo. The often daily interactions between one of the lion prides (The Tsaro Pride) and the Cape Buffalo (this particular pride’s main prey) have been famously documented by National Geographic in a film titled “Relentless Enemies”.
Duba Plains Camp is situated on an island amongst beautiful scenery, surrounded by vast seasonally flooded plains that host the famous lion and buffalo of Duba and shaded by tall ebony, fig and garcinia trees.
