Welcome to Duba Concession 

  • One of Deltas top wildlife concessions 
  • Owned by Africa’s finest operator and wildlife filmmakers, Derek Joubert 
  • Extreme wildlife sightings predominantly Lion and Buffalo
  • Excellent supporting cast of wildlife  
  • Both wet and dry safari’s possible most of the year 

The Duba Concession in this north-west region of the Delta is up there with one of the best wilderness areas in Africa. It is not an exaggeration to say that it simply astonishing what can occur in this beautiful but raw, even primaeval part of the Okavango. The extreme experiences one can have here is aided fully by there being only one camp offering, Duba Expedition camp as it is known now, whilst Duba Plains is rebuilt. 

Wildlife filmmakers Derek and Beverly Joubert own the company that has some of Africa’s finest camps, Duba Expedition/Plains being firmly among that list. Their view and ethos of how a safari should be run is uncompromising and frankly the gold standard that everyone should follow. 

At Duba, the concession is run by the Lion and Buffalo. This age old rivalry of hunter and prey comes to the fore in the most extreme of ways in this concession as the Lion here primarily only hunt Buffalo and do so in and around water. The lionesses in this region are impossibly large and powerful, stirring huge respect and a little fear in one’s heart. It is thrilling to say the least to be in amongst this raw wilderness and we would recommend to everyone that they should experience the Duba concession 

The area is not just about Lion and Buffalo and in fact the rest of the traditional game viewing is surprisingly good with Birding even having a shout out for being particularly high quality. This is due mainly because both wet and dry safari are possible here for the majority of the year with a good mix of habitat and vegetation.
