"Duba Explorers Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 6 Oct 2019
"It didn't start well. The vehicle that came to pick us from the airstrip had a problem. The guide said he had radioed for another vehicle, but after over 2 hours and no contact or vehicle we were getting worried. It was also not long till dark.

However he eventually got through and another vehicle was sent. There is a zone near the airport where the radio has no connection. This needs to be addressed either technically or by avoiding that area in future as obviously mobiles dont work either!

the camp itself was lovely and so were the staff. Animal sightings were scarcer here. We did see some leopard, cheetah, hyena etc but we also had some fairly fruitless game drives.

What stopped the review being average or less was the camp itself but also we probably saw/ videoed/ photoed the most iconic leopard photo of the whole trip here!" See all these reviews: 6n in Botswana; 5n in South Africa; 2n in Zimbabwe

"3 Nights at Duba Explorers Camp in Late June"

3 nights Arrived 23 Jun 2019
"An excellent location with a wide variety of sightings.

It felt that the furnishing of the tents was a bit "overboard" attempting to recreate the setting of a camp in Africa many years ago.

Wonderful staff and guide (Matt).

Able to get good photos of malachite kingfishers near camp via mokoro.

Encountered the tail of a leopard, a sleeping cheetah at 40 meters, and large groups of impala and zebra on a walking safari.

Absolutely classic sighting of a leopard on a dead tree branch en route to depart at the air strip." See all these reviews: 8n in Zambia; 7n in Botswana

"Duba Explorers Camp review"

4 nights Arrived 27 Apr 2019
"Beautiful and very comfortable camp. Our room had a terrace with sofa and very spacious bathroom. There was a small waterhole in front of our room, we enjoyed to see some animals coming to drink water in the daytime.

Game viewing was wonderful. We stayed here for 4 nights and saw wild dogs and leopards every day.

Staff were friendly and food was excellent." See all these reviews: 7n in Botswana

"Duba Expedition Camp review"

4 nights Arrived 14 Sep 2016
"An excellent camp but the game viewing was disappointing. Game has moved due to the change in the water table.

No buffalo had been seen for a long time - although this was usually when they were around. Only a few lions but masses of red lechwe and warthogs.

The birdlife was amazing. Tents were excellent but food was average" See all these reviews: 8n in Botswana; 8n in Mozambique; 4n in Zimbabwe; 1n in South Africa
