Itinerary in Brief
Tailor made itineraries can be made to suit weather conditions and
your preferences. If you have any questions on any activities or
programs, just ask one of our consultants.
Game drives take place in some of Botswana’s most coveted vehicles. Duba’s unique Toyota Land
Cruisers are aptly named ‘Swamp Vehicles’ due to their extra-high suspension and huge tyres - designed to traverse the floodplains and channels of the concession in comfort. These are, of course, open-sided, canopied and customised for photographers (fold-down screens, raised roofs, photographic bars, multi-plug invertors).
With just four to six guests each, the Cruisers are fully stocked with drinks and snacks. While the focus remains on the most comfortable times of day (early to mid-morning and late afternoon to evening) for drives, it is not uncommon to spend full days out in the field, having brunch or even dinner delivered to the vehicles. Our schedule is extremely flexible and guests are encouraged to create their own itinerary according to their interests. Very often, our safaris will continue into the night in search of nocturnal species.
Leaving early in the morning or late afternoon in a 4x4 open vehicle and explore the exciting wilderness, undisturbed. These times will be most ideal, as many wildlife species are active during these periods. Allow the world revolve around you, as you roam endlessly in the vehicle to seek exciting wildlife discoveries.
