We have just returned from a two-night stay at DumaTau and can't say enough wonderful things about it. The tents have incredible views and close proximity to the Hippo Highway (*between our tent and the next) gave us a real experience of being in the wild. The staff was incredible, especially tracker Flame and the rest of the team. We... More

Located at the bank of Linyanti lagoon, each tent of the camp faces the water, where you can see the hippos just a few feet in front of your tent. The food is fabulous. The vegetables are fresh. The desert is nice. I like the bread roll very much. I saw four hyenas and many wild dogs in one afternoon.... More

Dear Shuxun C, Thank you for your wonderful review, we are delighted to see that our ever enthusiastic staff took great care of you. The Linyante concession is a great area to see Wild Dogs. The African wild dog Lycaon pictus is one of the most admired, detested and mesmerising animals on the African continent. Living and hunting in packs,... More

Duma Tau was the third and final camp we visited on our Botswana safari. The accommodations are luxurious and the view is breathtaking -- each room looks out onto a flowing river. Similarly, the staff was excellent in making sure we had a truly special experience. On Christmas Eve, the staff performed traditional Christmas songs and dances before dinner. On... More

Dear OTBPGourmet, Thank you for your beautiful review, we are so glad to hear that Mocks was able to track down the "somewhat" illusive Wild Dog. Wild dog sightings have been less numerous recently compared to the denning season but we do still spot them regularly and following them on the hunt is one of the most thrilling experiences one...

Our guide, Tebla, was exceptional. His breadth of knowledge of the animals, their habitat, and the Okavanga Delta was phenomenal. Each day there were new sightings and unusual experiences. Our favorite experiences were in the pontoon boat and smaller motor boat, which allowed us to be within a few yards of elephants crossing the water and provided a more intimate... More

Duma Tau was our first experience with a Wilderness Safari Camp and it did not disappoint!!! Everything lived up to the luxury we had anticipated. Accommodation was environmentally attuned but with an air of simple sophistication.
