Having visited many of Wilderness Safaris camps in Botswana, South africa, Zimbabwe and Malawi, I am again amazed at how excellently they are run and kept, in these pristine and remote areas! Hats off !! Duma Tau is no exception!
The camp was moved to a brand new location on the exquisitely beautiful Osprey lagoon on the Linyanti river. All tents have views on the stunning lagoon and the vast palm fringed floodplains of the area. Elephant crossings are seen daily, as the crossing places are close to camp.
Duma Tau's tents are larger than the standard Classic camps. They have a fresh, airy design and kept immaculately clean.
The Duma Tau team was great. The staff were all positive and energetic, always available and ready to help.Thanks to Ashley, Murray, Tara, Catherine and the team.
Our guides at all Wilderness camps have always been exceptional, but Moses was outstanding!! He is so enthusiastic and knowledgable. We really had exceptional sitings: Wild Dog teaching their young to hunt, confrontation between Lion and Hiena, Leopard stalking. close encounters with Ellies, numerous birds and so much more.
The food was also outstanding. We especially enjoyed the great variety at lunch.
We also enjoyed being able to do gamedriving as well as boating, and the barge trip was very comfy and relaxing.
Our favoutite place was the floating bar on the lagoon. Every night a fire was lit there and one could enjoy pre-dinner drinks with the cool blue waters surrounding you and the sounds of frogs and crickets to amuse you.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Perhaps the best game viewing in far northern Botswana - from its newest and most stylish camp. DumaTau means "roar of the lion," but the elephant reigns here. The camp is set on a lagoon on the Linyanti River between two "elephant highways," affording unparalleled viewing of these iconic mammals, along with other wildlife. Together with sweeping, dramatic views of the river, the architecture of the camp expresses the explorer aesthetic, as well as the idea of space. There is an airy dining and lounge area, and a pool, all taking advantage of the superb view of the lagoon. Highlights DumaTau is located close to the source of the Savute Channel, with access to the Linyanti Swamps, floodplains and extensive mopane woodlands, thus offering an excellent combination of land and river. During winter, large elephant herds traverse the area. Chances of viewing leopard, lion and wild dog are excellent, along with other large mammals like hippo, red lechwe, giraffe, waterbuck, kudu, impala and occasional buffalo. 10 Tents (including 2 Family Tents): Rebuilt 2012; en-suite; spacious; raised off the ground; clear-storey window; 100% solar powered Experiences: Day and night game drives • Nature walks (on request) • Boating and barge (seasonal) • Game viewing hides • Catch-and-release fishing (seasonal) ... more less
