My husband and I spent three nights at this beautiful camp while on safari with a group of friends. Tents were large and luxurious with indoor and outdoor showers, double vanities and very comfortable king bed. Imagine lying in bed at night, listening to the elephants and hippos walking next to your tent, hearing lions roar nearby, with the musical "tinkling" of frogs in the background.
Staff were very attentive and pleasant . Food was very good. Thank you Pierre!Our guides were knowledgeable and eager to have us see as much as possible...and boy, did they succeed! It was a trip of a lifetime . If you are thinking of visiting this camp , please give yourself this amazing gift.

Hello there!

Thank you for your complimentary review of Duba Plains.
We enjoyed hosting you and your friends and we appreciate your praise.

Roaring lions while you drift into sleep is indeed a special gift and we’re so happy you experienced the magic of the African bush.

Kind regards
Antoinette, Pierre and the rest of the Duba Team.

Pierre and Antoinette are outstanding hosts! Antoinette ensures every wish is granted and Pierre makes the most wonderful food and is generous about sharing his recipes. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. Wildlife viewing is outstanding and every day was an amazing surprise.
We met other guests who were there on their 3rd, 4th and 5th visits. I can see why! We'll return too.

Room tip: All rooms are wonderful, clean and comfortable.

We did enjoy Duba Plains with our daughters, but nature is fickle! We trailed lions who were also trailing a very large herd of buffalo for 3 days only to be disappointed to see the herd cross over the marsh to Paradise Island!! A well chosen name. The camp however is very comfortable, wonderfully managed by Antoinette & fed by the brilliant Pierre. Probably the best food we have experienced while on any safari.

It is possible that because the prides of lion & herds of buffalo are down that the reputation of Duba Plains is not as exciting as it used to be, but there were wonderful birds, varieties of antelope & elephant that kept us absorbed & it was a very good start to our safari holiday in the Okavango Delta & Zambia over the next 18 days. Our guide James, is to be complemented for all the effort he made.

4 of us traveled from the UK to Duba Plains at the beginning of June- it has always been a camp we have wanted to visit- we loved everything about it- from the amazing food prepared by Pierre (probably the best we have had on any safari) and Antoinette's camp management- to our wonderful guide 007 James who had endless patience.
We weren't quite lucky enough to see the lions actually kill a buffalo (though they did have a few tries) but loved watching the animal interactions- and the excitement and thrill of seeing the lion and buffalo so close together- and then unexpectedly come across a second pride out of their territory.The water was very deep at the time and it was amazing to see lions and elephants wade though it - and huge skill to drive the jeep through the deep channels.
It was very cold both morning and night and we had on lots of layers- great ponchos in the jeep and hot water bottles.
One afternoon a young elephant surprised my husband by coming along outside our tent and eating most of the tree that was blocking his view of the land- very exciting for him- I had a nap by the pool and woke up to a large female warthog with young staring at me- don't know who got more of a fright her or me!
The tents were spacious and well appointed- great to have electricity inside.
We felt extremely privileged to have been able to come here and see what Duba has to offer and would highly recommend it - especially if you want to see the interaction between the lion and buffalo (which after all is what it is famous for). However don't expect to see a huge variety of game it is a very specialized area and we loved it.

Our fourth visit and of course, with the expectation that we could witness one of the three Lion prides strategise for their Buffalo hunt, and possibly succeed. This event is controlled by the natural order of this ecosystem so largely it is dependent on one's luck...to see a prey fall victim to its predator or manage to survive yet another attack from the lions. However, what is in control is the camp experience. Pierre's flavours, Antoinette's management, OT's team and Kop's guiding created magic. We saw an unbelievably relaxed leopard - something we have never seen before in this area. The rooms are small but very well organised with a touch of luxurious detail that makes you feel a bit special. Slippers with embroidered shells for chilly mornings, comfortable bed with a gorgeous azure sham, frankincense burner subtle and effective, ergonomic dressing area, personalised water canisters, binoculars, exquisitely stocked shop. Thank you Duba Plains...we will keep coming back.

Room tip: Beautiful outlook to every room, however, if you wish to walk the least, choose room 1.
