Hotel Overview


In the Northern reaches of the Okavango Delta.

Rooms at Duba Plains

Duba Plains' 6 sturdy canvas tents are raised up on wooden platforms which allow the breeze from the water to drift in, and give you fantastic elevated views over the floodplains. Inside, they’re romantic but authentic with large muslin canopied beds.

Food and facilities

You’ll all sit around a long table: tucking in to the excellent food, and enjoying magical views over the delta and boma area. The wonderful staff can also string up some lanterns for a romantic dinner for two, and you may also be treated to a surprise breakfast in the bush.

Activities at Duba Plains

Because there are just twelve guests at Duba Plains, the guides can be really spontaneous: whisking you off at dawn to see that passing pride of lions, before plunging right into the delta in their deep-water 4x4s. You’ll also be taken on a mokoro ride, amongst grunting hippo and an inventory of rare wildfowl, before heading inland for incredible clashes between lion and buffalo.
