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. To be lulled to sleep by the tinkling of the frogs and water creatures was music to the ears (for me but maybe not... More

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
