The Duba Expedition Camp provides you with a once in a lifetime getaway in the heart of classic Okavango Delta habitat. Housing a maximum of 12 guests and being the only camp on the concession, visitors are insured an intimate and private experience. The six expedition tents have an incredible view of the surrounding floodplain, which allows guests to be surrounded by unforgettable sights. The Duba Expedition Camp strives to create an environment that's "an intimate, traditional space where hearts and spirits find inspiration in a history rich with extraordinary wildlife stories."

Activities:

Because the Duba Expedition Camp prides itself on their extraordinary wildlife experiences, activities largely involve exploring their surroundings in a 4x4 vehicle, or on a boat when water levels permit. Scheduling is flexible, and guests are encouraged to create their own itinerary based on their unique interests. Tours often involve sightings of diverse species such as commonly seen elephants, and large herds of Red lechwe. The Duba Expedition Camp is also recognized as a birdwatchers paradise, as the rare Wattled crane, Pel’s Fishing owl, White-backed Night heron and Marsh owl are all seen on site. Safaris also often continue throughout the night so guests can see nocturnal species.

The Duba Expedition Camp is located in the Kwedi Reserve, Botswana, and is only accessible to guests by scheduled air transfers or private air charters.
