If witnessing the mightiest of Africa’s wildlife – the lion – is what you’re hoping to see on your tour of Africa, then Duba Plains is the luxurious setting for you to base yourself. Located in a remote region with a strong conservation ethos, it’s renowned for its excellent sightings of the creatures.
Within the very heart of the Oskavango Delta, this wildlife connoisseur’s getaway offers luxury in abundance and plenty of natural wonders to boot. The six-tent camp has been created atop a wooded island, reached by a set of elaborate bridges.
The raised decking on which each of the tent-style accommodations rest is perfectly positioned for views of the floodplain. Each boasts a private verandah, en-suite and shower and cool bedrooms with ceiling fans. A raised dining room, bar, lounge, pool and outdoor dining area complete the camp.
Away from the comfort of the camp and the region is one of the best to spot Africa’s wildlife. The interaction between the buffalo herds and Duba’s lion prides is particularly special, with a wealth of other wildlife sightings including leopard, elephant, hippo, red lechwe, blue wildebeest, greater kudu, tsessebe and giraffe also common.
