Duke’s Camp

Duke’s Camp and Duke’s East occupy prime positions in a 220,000 acre private concession in the northern reaches of Botswana’s fabled Okavango Delta. The camps enjoy shaded settings amongst leadwood and ebony trees overlooking a permanent lagoon.

Accommodation and Facilities
Duke’s Camp has eight canvas safari tents while neighbouring Duke’s East has four. These tents are raised on stilts and furnished with Persian rugs and four poster beds. The ensuite bathrooms have brass fittings and each tent has its own deck with campaign chairs and a great view of the Okavango Delta. The mess tent has a lounge with a well stocked drinks cabinet, oriental rugs and campaign furniture. Meals are taken under the shade of the leadwood trees or in the dining tent.

Wildlife and Activities
The wildlife viewing in this area is excellent and it’s almost always private. Lion, leopard, wild dog, cheetah, buffalo, elephant, giraffe, and zebra are among the species that are regularly seen, with more unusual animals such as caracal, serval and mongoose also spotted. Day and night wildlife drives in open vehicles, boat cruises, seasonal fishing, fly-camping on islands, and mokoro trips along the waterways are among the ways to experience this spectacular wilderness. Helicopter flights can also be arranged for an additional cost.
