DumaTau Camp:

DumaTau Camp is a ten-roomed (eight twin and two family) luxury tented camp located in the private 125 000-hectare Linyanti Wildlife Reserve that borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park in northernBotswana. It is situated close to the source of theSavute Channel on Osprey Lagoon, one of the many lagoons within the Linyanti Swamp system, and between two elephant ‘corridors’ – all of which makes for a plethora of wildlife on game drives along theSavute.

DumaTau Camp, rebuilt completely in 2012, is raised off the ground to take advantage of the sweeping dramatic river views. Each en-suite tent is spacious, spreading out under a canvas roof, with a wraparound clear-storey window that allows for dramatic views of the riverfront, as well as the sounds of Africa, all from the comfort of the room. There is an airy and expansive dining and lounge area, and a guest bathroom, all overlooking the lagoon and its denizens. 

Importantly, in line with the Wilderness 4Cs ethos, DumaTau Camp operates completely on solar energy, for hot water, lighting and other energy needs, and is built of FSC-standard timber. In addition, the camp has water-wise waste removal and uses green and thermal insulating materials. 
The region has all the habitat diversity to make it a haven for wildlife, and is well-known for its elephant concentrations as they congregate along the waterways and lagoons during the dry winter months. General wildlife viewing is excellent year round including impala, wildebeest, red lechwe, Burchell’s zebra, giraffe, Cape buffalo, chacma baboon, vervet monkey, and warthog. Predator sightings of lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and spotted hyaena are good.

Wildlife viewing is the primary activity at DumaTau 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 Savute Channel, while the camp’s barge 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 Savute and many species of game and birdlife can be seen from this hide
