DUBA EXPLORERS CAMP
from US $915 pppn (for stays 11 January – 31 March 2021)

Duba Explorers Camp is a wildlife connoisseur’s getaway; situated on an island in the northern reaches of the 33,000 hectare Duba concession and surrounded on all sides by pristine Okavango Delta. This intimate camp, with its own private traversing area within the concession and away from that of Duba Plains Camp, consists of five expedition-style tents of light airy canvas on slightly raised decking, each with views of the surrounding floodplain.
Each tent is stylishly furnished and designed by Great Plains Conservation Founders and National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence Dereck and Beverly Joubert, using their unique sensibilities to capture a spirit of exploration. Each room has a campaign writing desk and private verandah as well as en-suite facilities consisting of flush loo, double vanities and indoor shower. Fans and open air design maintain a comfortable climate for rest and relaxation. The main area is open-air, under sweeping marquee canvas, on raised decking and consists of an open-concept dining and lounge area.
THE DUBA EXPERIENCE
Enjoy guided walks, mekoro and boating opportunities (subject to season floods) or early morning and late afternoon wildlife drives and revel in the one of the most stunning and varied wildlife areas in the world.
Duba Explorers Camp prides itself on its extraordinary wildlife experiences, and rightly so. Guests of the camp enjoy regular sightings of a diverse range of species, including lechwe, kudu, tsessebe and giraffe. Herds of elephants and buffalo move around the camp and hippo trudge through the swamps creating their channels and paths daily. Lions, leopards and even African wild (painted) dogs are spotted regularly. Birds abound, and the area is a birdwatcher’s paradise.
SELINDA EXPLORERS CAMP
from US $865 pppn (for stays 11 January – 31 March 2021)
from US $960 pppn (for stays 1 November – 19 December 2020 & 1 April – 14 June 2021)
Located on a remote stretch of the Selinda Spillway, in the heart of the private 130,000 hectare Selinda Reserve, Selinda Explorers is an intimate camp designed in the style of the early explorers. The camp’s magic lies in its expedition-style, with campaign furniture and vintage travelling trunks that lend an authentic, transient atmosphere to the camp.
The camp’s focal point is the Bedouin-style main area consisting of a lounge and dining room. Under a canopy of jackalberry and mangosteen trees, the four canvas guest tents are raised just slightly off the ground, connecting guests with the pulse of the wild. Rekindling the magic of safaris gone by, hot and cold water in the tents is provided in large jugs for the copper vanities. The separate en-suite flush toilet and shower area, although covered and enclosed at the sides, remains open-air. The atmosphere of the camp is one of bush elegance with a relaxed bohemian style, complemented by attentive staff, outstanding guiding and fabulous food.
THE SELINDA EXPERIENCE
Wildlife viewing is focused on guided walks in addition to drives, allowing guests to take in the smaller things often missed from a vehicle. The area is also a wildlife hotspot home to herds of elephant and buffalo with lion, leopard, African wild dog and sable and roan antelope seen on a regular basis. After days spent walking, while away the heat of the afternoon in a hammock, the perfect respite from the ‘daily grind’ of a traditional safari.
