Duba Plains Camp
In the center of the Okavango Delta is the famed Duba Plains Camp. The 33 000-hectare private reserve is a patchwork of islands with palm trees, flood flats, and woods that represents the distinctive nature of the area. In addition to a separate 2-bedroom suite aptly called the Duba Plains Suite, Duba Plains Camp offers 5 custom suites, all of which were designed by Dereck Joubert to blend into the forest and to take advantage of the shapes and textures of the shade while also evoking the traditional 1920s African safari style. With literally hundreds of species arranged in an almost unending pattern over the flood plains, it is a wildlife enthusiast’s paradise.
Dereck and Beverly Joubert, proprietors of the property and National Geographic filmmakers, adventurers, and environmentalists, made this their home base. The concession’s only operator, Great Plains Conservation, gives visitors the best chance possible for solitary animal observations.
Through leasing funds, employment opportunities, and other initiatives like our Big Cats Caring for Communities, Lamps for Learning (solar jars), and Conservation Camp for Kids, Duba Plains has built a strategy that maximizes benefits for the neighborhood.
