Room types at Duba Plains
Classic safari tents on raised decks with commanding views
Tucked under the cool shade of large mangosteen and fig trees and looking across the reserve’s vast floodplains, the six traditional “Meru-Style” sturdy canvas en-suite tents are raised off the ground on wooden decks. This enables stunning views across the floodplain as well as capturing fresh, cool breezes. Each of the tents has a private verandah leading to large double doors, which enter the canvas-constructed tents. High ceilings with fans and large windows bring the outside in, while still affording ample privacy. A writing desk, comfortable lounge furniture and large beds with the finest linen draped in mosquito nets make for a romantic yet authentic space. The en-suite dressing area with a double basin vanity, indoor and outdoor showers and a flush toilet provide all the home comforts, with appropriate style and luxury. All hot water is available 24 hours a day and is solar heated. The main lounge, bar and dining room are intimate and open-air, built under vaulted thatch roofs. An outdoor dining area for brunches and a large plunge pool are tucked away from the main area, offering a refreshing afternoon retreat. And of course, the evening open-air fireplace hosts stories of each day's adventures. For those eager to pick up some local wares, a small curio shop, which was completely rebuilt in February 2012, meets the need. An extra indulgence at Duba Plains is the new masseuse area which was completed in February 2012. This area, which is by the water’s edge, is a perfect location for having the tension of travel removed whilst staring out across the Okavango Delta.
