It is hard to put into words what an amazing experience we have had at this camp. It is well managed and the guest is the #1 priority. Our guide Kops was so professional and engaged. We asked him to do the impossible and he did. This guide found the elusive pangolin for us two years in a row. There...

Impeccable service, delicious food, luxurious "tents" and very knowledgable guides. Duba Plains is a unique once in a lifetime experience. Most known for being surrounded by water, Duba is picturesque landscape like no others. Guides are careful to position vehicles to allow you to capture the perfect photo - and even can help set up your camera (if you don't...

Duba Plaines Much has been written about Duba Plains because of the filming of the lion buffalo hunts by the famous Dereck and Beverly Joubert team. We were not sure what to expect and were delighted; we thought this was a perfect camp – it is a traditional safari camp in all the right ways – like finely aged wood...

The staff was so friendly, the food was AMAZING and the breakfasts around the fire were heartwarming. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and we learned so much. There were 10 people in our group, the youngest was 8 and the oldest was 72 and everyone agrees that Duba was our favorite camp by far.

Duba Plains was the third safari camp of our trip. The "water experience" was quite unique. Driving through the wetlands and seeing all the bird life was unique to this area.
