This was my 9th safari and my daughter's 8th, meaning we are experienced at what one should realistically expect from the camps and game viewing etc. And DumaTau... 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. 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

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

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.

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...
