DumaTau Location Map

DumaTau is a tented camp located in the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve which borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park in northern Botswana. 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 hyena are good.

Morning and afternoon game drives reveal the rich wildlife of the area where predators and elephant are often the highlight. The open 4x4 Land Cruisers each accommodate a maximum of 4 people and each guest will have a ‘window’ seat. Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during the day. These often include lesser bushbaby, spring hare, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and, if you are extremely lucky, the elusive pangolin! Water levels permitting, guests can also explore the Linyanti River by boat or barge, the latter perfect for picnics or sundowners or searching out those elusive birds in the channels.

Depending on qualified guide availability, nature walks with skilled, armed guides are wonderful ways of getting close to nature and observing the smaller things you miss when travelling by vehicle. Scenic helicopter flights can also be arranged, offering a truly unique way to experience the wonders of the Linyanti. Seasonal fishing is also permitted on a catch-and-release basis.

The camp's extensive lagoon frontage ensures that each of the ultra-spacious guest suites has uninterrupted views over the Osprey Lagoon. In addition, the 7 twin tents and one Family Tent have a private plunge pool and a comfortable lounge, and feature a large bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers.

The main dining and lounge area boasts its own wide-angle vistas, while a wellness centre and gym includes an inviting shaded deck, a lap pool, spa, snack deli and trading store.

There is a hide at the camp for those wishing to while away their siesta hour watching the active birdlife of the area, while a raised platform at the Zibalianja Lagoon is the perfect place from which to view and photograph animals and birds. This platform can also be used for an authentic and unique way to sleep out under the crystal clear African skies surrounded by nature.
