DumaTau Camp Botswana
DumaTau Camp Botswana Guest Pool

DumaTau, meaning ‘roar of the lion,’ is located in the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve on the western boundary of Chobe National Park. The area is famed for large herds of elephants and exceptional game viewing along the Savute Channel.

Nestled deep within the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, on the northernmost fringe of Botswana, lies DumaTau Camp Botswana. With unique access to both the Linyanti River and Savuti Channel, the reserve’s diverse, pristine 126 000-hectares (311 353-acres) offers truly exclusive excursions and close-up wildlife encounters. Wilderness DumaTau’s extensive lagoon frontage ensures that each ultra-spacious 142 m2 guest suite has uninterrupted views over Osprey Lagoon, and the movements of the mega-herds of elephants that the Linyanti is so famous for.

DumaTau Camp Botswana Accommodation:

All seven twin tented suites and one family unit, with private plunge pools, sit on elevated wooden decks mere steps from the wildlife corridors, so game often wander peacefully through the camp. An inviting indoor lounge, spacious bathroom which includes indoor and outdoor showers – feature interiors of hand-crafted mosaic tiles, acacia wood, and local textiles which reflect the heart of the Linyanti. The main dining and lounge areas boast unimpeded wide-angle vistas that overlook the wildlife-rich lagoon, while the centrally located Osprey Retreat wellness centre and gym – shared with Wilderness Little DumaTau – includes an inviting shaded deck, a lap pool, spa, a drinks and snack counter, and Safari Boutique. 

DumaTau has a very light carbon footprint and runs on 100% solar energy.

DumaTau Camp Botswana Wildlife: 

Wilderness DumaTau is located close to the source of the Savuti Channel, with access to the Linyanti Swamps, floodplains and mopane woodlands, thus offering an excellent combination of habitats. Well known for its concentrations of elephants as sizeable herds congregate along the waterways and lagoons during the dry winter months. In addition, the area is renowned for general wildlife including red lechwe, Burchell's zebras, giraffes, buffalos, and warthogs. Predator sightings of lions, leopards, cheetahs, African wild dogs, and spotted hyaenas are good. With enormous concentrations of hippos and crocodiles residing in the Savuti Channel.

Wildlife activities include day and night game drives, walks, and boating along the Linyanti River's serene waters. Be sure to take some time out and spend an afternoon on the barge with a chilled cocktail in hand as the sun dips into a Namibian background. With some luck, Africa's majestic elephants will play a part and share in one of Botswana's most sought-after vistas.
