Duma Tau Camp

Duma Tau (meaning `roar of the lion`) is a ten-roomed luxury tented camp, in the private 125 000 hectare Linyanti Wildlife Reserve which borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park in northern Botswana. This concession is one of the best wildlife areas of the Delta and the sightings here are usually great all year around.

This is one of the oldest and best camps in Botswana, run by experienced and friendly staff, that makes you feel very special. The feedback we usually get from guests having stayed here is only the very best. The camp is built on raised boardwalks under a shady grove of mangosteen trees, overlooking a large hippo-filled lagoon on the Linyanti waterways. The region has all the habitat diversity to make it a haven for wildlife.

The tented rooms at Duma Tau are spacious, raised off the ground and under thatch with canvas walls - allowing guests to enjoy the night sounds of Africa from the comfort of their rooms. The bathroom facilities are en-suite, with hot and cold running water. Each room has an additional outside shower. There is a dining room, pub, lounge, plunge pool and a special guest toilet with a fantastic view.

Duma Tau activities are diverse and allow guests time on the water, on land and occasionally on foot. Day and night game drives are conducted in open 4x4 vehicles along the Savuti Channels and the banks of the Linyanti River. There are many hides in the area where guests can enjoy wildlife viewing close up and away from a vehicle. 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.

The camp is booked on an all inclusive basis with all meals and drinks, scheduled game-viewing activities and laundry service. Children at the age of 6 and above are accepted here.
