$ $ $ $ $
Duba Explorers Camp in Northern Botswana is tucked away in the northeast corner of the Duba Plains concession, a 77,000 acre private reserve in the Okavango Delta. Due to its location at the northern reaches of the Delta, the surroundings are dominated by a permanent floodplain, interspersed with seasonal floodplains, grasslands, and pockets of mopane and acacia woodlands.

WHY WE LOVE IT:
During a stay at Duba Explorers Camp guests step into the shoes of the early adventurers. Explore the water channels associated with the Ngoga River system by boat or traditional canoes (mokoro), meander through channels created by hippos and elephants. The mokoro allows you to glide silently through the channel systems and experience an undisturbed water world around you. With over 400 bird species, birding is unsurpassed, with spectacular species like the malachite kingfisher zipping past you in a burst of color. Vehicle safaris in this paradise allow for exciting encounters with the predators resident to the area. On guided walks explore the islands, wetlands, and plains, following the tracks and interpreting the signs of the wild. Guests might even be lucky enough to get a glimpse of a rare sitatunga or an elusive leopard. Enjoy the excitement of catch and release fishing where one can study the various delta fish species up close.
