Duma Tau Camp is a ten-roomed luxury tented camp located in the private 125 000-hectare Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, which borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park in northern Botswana. It is situated close to the source of the Savuti Channel on one of the many lagoons within the Linyanti Swamp system, which makes game drives along the Savuti one of the highlights of a stay here.
Duma Tau Camp lies under a shady grove of mangosteen trees, raised off the ground to overlook a large hippo-filled lagoon. The tents are spacious, under thatch with canvas walls, en-suite bathroom facilities and an outside shower. Guests can enjoy the night sounds of Africa from the comfort of their rooms, and shower under the stars. There is a dining room, pub, lounge, swimming pool and a special guest bathroom with a fantastic view.
Wildlife viewing is the primary activity at Duma Tau Camp, either on day and night game drives or while on foot and on the water (levels permitting). Short nature walks can be taken along the Linyanti River and Savuti Channel, while the camp’s boat takes visitors along the waters of the Linyanti, with hippo and waterfowl alike to entrance. There are also a number of platforms and hides from which to view and photograph animals and birds. One of the best hides is right at the source of the Savuti and many species of game and birdlife can usually be seen from this hide.Show Less
