Whether you choose one of the five enormous tented suites or the larger two bedroomed Duba Plains Suite, the luxurious Duba Plains is the perfect retreat for couples, small groups or families.

Each palatial suite has its own en-suite bathroom complete with a free-standing bath tub (perfect to recline in after a long day of exploring); an environmentally friendly air-conditioning system to keep you comfortable; and a full-length veranda with your own private plunge pool and gorgeous views of the sprawling floodplains.

When you’re not out exploring the Delta you can unwind in the lavish lounge, get lost in a book from the well-stocked library or share stories of the day over a glass of the finest vintage in the wine cellar.

Go Exclusive In Botswana
The best way to give your family the facilities it seeks may be to book out an entire camp or lodge. Perhaps you are planning a multi-generation safari. Or you may want to fulfil a dream of walking, mokoroing and camping out in the Okavango. You may simply crave an extra degree of privacy.
