Built on a wooded island, connected to the prolific wildlife area by an elaborate set of bridges, the area is the base of many famous wildlife documentaries by National Geographic filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert. It is the only camp on the concession, thereby offering guests the ultimate opportunity for private sightings.
The intimate camp consists of six expedition-style tents of light airy canvas on slightly raised decking, each with views of the surrounding floodplain. Each tent has a small desk and private veranda plus en-suite facilities consisting of flush loo, double basins and indoor shower. Fans and careful open-air design maintain comfortable climate for rest and relaxation. The main area is under sweeping marquis canvas, on raised decking and consists of an open-concept dining and lounge area which opens to the outdoors on all sides. In the evenings, the fire pit is always a popular spot to enjoy an Amarula and recount the day’s events.

Game drives (day and night) take place in some of Botswana’s most coveted vehicles. Three of Duba’s unique Toyota Land Cruisers are aptly named ‘Swamp Vehicles’ due to their extra-high suspension and huge tyres – designed to traverse the floodplains and channels of the concession in comfort. These are, of course, open-sided, canopied and customised for photographers (fold-down screens, raised roofs, photographic bars, multi-plug invertors). With just four to six guests each, the Cruisers are fully stocked with drinks and snacks.
Guided game walks with licensed, armed guides are available, and these can be combined with boat cruise or game drive.
Game viewing schedule is very flexible
