As you arrive at DumaTau camp you cannot help being astonished by the view and location, right on the water at the Savuti Channel. The camp is really spectacularly located. Our room was stunning, far more than expected for a remote camp in the Delta. The rooms look right onto the river and wildlife can been seen there, and you... More

Dear Thesurfmeetstheturf, thank you for your lovely review of the camp, we are so glad that you enjoyed the lunch on the barge and our "in-house entertainment". We are terribly sorry to hear that things did not go so well with your guide, it is very true that more often than not the guide can make or break the experience.... More

Dumatau was glam ping at its finest and my favorite of the four camps I stayed on my trip to Victoria falls and Botswana. Wilderness safari is fantastic and I found all the staff lovely and super accommodating. The tents were lovely and everyone had an amazing water view facing Namibia. I loved the light into the rooms and even... More

Botswana – Duma Tau First, to highlight the positive features of this camp. The staff are really terrific, in particular the kitchen and service team who were outstanding; among the best of any Wilderness camp we’ve visited. They have set a standard to be proud of!

Dear Edward068, Thank you for your review, we are sorry the new layout of the camp is not to your liking. DumaTau means “roar of the lion,” but the elephant reigns here.

This was the last camp of 5 camps we visited on our July trip and we had the most exciting game viewing, including a leopard feeding off a dead hippo and 4 big male lions having a territorial fight right next to the vehicle. Other guests were viewing Wild Dog to the west of the concession at the same time... More

Dear ChrisW311, Thank you for glamorous review, we are glad you had such a great sighting of Lions. The Linyanti experiences tremendous seasonal transitions: in summer brilliantly green and lush, while in winter it becomes a barren, dry and harsh interior away from the river. In the dry winter months, large herds of elephant and zebra stay close to the... More

Of the three Wilderness Safaris concessions where we stayed last month, this was our favorite and where fortunately we booked three nights. "Tent" number 1 was pleasantly removed (maybe 100 yards) from the central dining and social facility, so a couple times we had to wait for a greater kudu or an elephant to clear the area where the raised...

Like all the Wilderness Safari camps this was lovely, well appointed, good food on the river. The staff was always helpful and could not do enough for our pleasure.
