Duma Tau is a small, luxury tented camp located in the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve that borders the western boundary of Botswana's legendary Chobe National Park. The camp is built under a shady grove of mangosteen trees and overlooks a large hippo-filled lagoon. The source of the famous Savuti Channel is close to the camp, and day and night game drives in open 4x4 vehicles along this game-packed waterway are full of drama. The area is famous above all for its elephant population; huge herds congregate in winter (June to October) along the Linyanti's waterways. During these dry months, sable and roan antelope traverse the floodplains along with impala, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, lechwe, tsessebe and other plains game. No surprises then to learn that your days at Duma Tau will revolve around game viewing on the water, on land and on foot. There are many hides in the area, including an excellent one at the source of the Savuti, providing fantastic photographic opportunities.
Raised on wooden decks, Duma Tua's atmospheric central area consists of a lounge and bar area as well as a dining area, all leading onto an extensive viewing deck. Find local crafts to take home with you in the small curio shop. The traditional firepit is the ideal setting to swop safari stories in the evening, while the swimming pool, with its courtesy fridges, is the best place to spend your afternoon.
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.
