Duba Plains is perhaps the Okavango Delta's most remote camp. Located on a 74,130 acre (30,000 hectare) private concession area known as Kwedi, the camp is just north of Moremi Reserve. Built on an island, surrounded by expansive seasonally flooded plains, this pristine area is home to lion, lechwe, elephant, aardwolf, bat-eared fox, side-striped jackal and huge herds of buffalo, as well as a large variety of Okavango Delta bird life.
Duba Plains was an interesting contrast. I like the open plains I realized. Saw lots of lions. Buffalo had moved to Paradise island which is not accessible. They said they had moved 3 or 4 days before we came. Anyway, the staff and the guide and tracker (Pete and 006 James) were great, with close lion and elephant encounters.
Kwetsani was a beautiful camp w ith wonderful staff but our guide, Twindi, was average. We worked briefly with another guide who was excellent and the guiding did not detract from this experience. The camp reminded us of Chiawa. We were put in the new tent #6 which was fabulous - last one on the end with expansive view. Enjoyed boats and drives. Giraffe and kudu combat. Huge kudu herds. We saw porcupine during the day and 2 honey badgers also during the day - the HB's were a first time for us and on Ed's wish list this year. They were so fast I think we only got their backs running down the road.
Jack's was fabulous. Loved it and three days was perfect . Meerkats were unreal. Ed was like a kid on the ATV. The Pans are just peaceful. There were only a few zebra and wildebeests left as the migration was over. Food was fabulous. Staff was superior. We were given the owners tent which was isolated, faced east and towards the Pans and the Bushman camp. The Bushman experience was highly valued and we have great pictures. Very unique experience and appreciate that you were able to afford us the opportunity. Let me know if you have any question. Lots more to tell but this would never end. Take care and thanks again.Read More
