DumaTau Camp


DumaTau means roar of the lion yet it is its massive elephant concentrations and outstanding wildlife in general for which it is renowned. Located close to the source of the Savute Channel in the vast Linyanti concession in northern Botswana, this and other waterways lure a plethora of wildlife and birds particularly in the dry winter months. DumaTau is a ten-roomed tented camp (including one family room) overlooking a large hippo-filled lagoon. The tents are spacious, under thatch with canvas walls, en-suite bathroom facilities and an outside shower. There is a dining room, pub, lounge, swimming pool and a special guest bathroom with a fantastic view. Wildlife viewing is the primary activity here, either on day and night game drives or while on foot and in the water (level permitting). There are also a number of platforms and hides from which to view and photograph animals and birds.
