The whispers of unseen wonders in Africa will pull your heart to a safari where your safari means so much more. With this Great Plains Conservation safari program, you can witness the wildlife in Botswana while preserving wilderness and empowering people. In the intimate traditional space of Duba Expedition camp, your heart and spirit will find inspirations in the wildlife stories.
During this safari, you will stay at Duba Expedition Camp. The intimate camp consists of six expedition-style tents of light airy canvas on slightly raised decking, each with views of the surrounding floodplain. Each tent has a small desk and private verandah plus en-suite facilities consisting of a flush loo, double basins, and indoor shower. Fans and careful open-air design maintain a comfortable climate for rest and relaxation.
The main area is under sweeping marquis canvas, on raised decking, and consists of an open-concept dining and lounge area which opens to the outdoors on all sides. In the evenings, the fire pit is always a popular spot to enjoy an Amarula and recount the day’s events.
On this safari, you will enjoy two daily guided game drives in the early morning and late afternoon or early evening in an open 4×4 vehicle and boat-based activities when water levels permit.
This retreat will take place in Okavango Delta, Northern Botswana. Your place of stay, the brand new Duba Expedition Camp, sits in the heart of Okavango Delta habitat. A matrix of palm-dotted islands, flood plains, and woodland, the 77.000-acre private concession typifies the region’s unique landscape. Located there, exclusively, is the six tents of Duba Expedition Camp, a wildlife connoisseur’s getaway.
Built on a wooded island, connected to the prolific wildlife area by an elaborate set of bridges, the area is the base of many famous wildlife documentaries by National Geographic filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert. It is the only camp on the concession, thereby offering guests the ultimate opportunity for private sightings. The homogenous experience of wildlife is renowned with regular sightings of a diverse range of species, including large herds of red lechwe, greater kudu, tsessebe, and even giraffe which in some previous years has been a rare sighting.
Elephants and hippo trudge through the swamps happily and are regularly seen. Leopards and nocturnal species such as brown hyena can be sighted as well. Birds abound, and the area is reputed as a birdwatcher’s paradise. Okavango's ‘specials’ include the rare wattled crane, pel’s fishing owl, white-backed night heron, and marsh owl.
Daily meals and alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages (excluding imported and premium spirits) will be served for you.
