Duba Plains offers a variety of activities and the focus depends on how much water is in the area. Guests may choose between game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, mokoro excursions and walking safaris.
The night drives often provide opportunities to photograph Africa's elusive nocturnal animals in action. Makoros are best from May to October. For the rest of the year the Plains can usually offer shorter mokoro excursions, but the activities concentrate more on game drives, nights drives and walks.
The African wildlife at Duba Plains is fascinating. The vast open grasslands are often isolated from the mainland by deep waterways, the variety of animals is not as high as in other areas within the Okavango. However, Duba Plains more than makes up for this as it is a high impact game viewing area.
The large herds of Buffalo are the Lion's main prey. Lechwe and Sable and all the plains game dot the savannah and Elephant feed on the islands. Hippo concentrate in the deeper channels and Leopard are found on the forested islands. Most of the Delta's bird life is found in the area as well.
