My husband and I visited Duma Tau after leaving Mombo (an impossible act to follow), and we had adjusted our expectations to expect a less pleasurable experience. But guess what? We thought Duma Tau was great! The menus and food prep were wonderful, the staff and managers lovely and entertaining, and our guide, Moses, was the best guide of our trip. The managers arranged a surprise, private anniversary dinner on our deck the last night of our 2-night visit, a very special touch! The camp has a relaxed feel, but still has elegant touches here and there (many of the managers and guides transferred from Mombo).
Moses is a real worker, and we saw lots of game in this very beautiful area of Botswana. He gave us much more additional information about the animals that the other guides did. Moses is a walking encyclopedia!
You'll love this camp.
- 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
