DumaTau Camp (Chobe /
Linyanti Region) Botswana
The Linyanti Reserve consists of 125,000 hectares of
prime wildlife countryside. The reserve is bordered to the
north by the Linyanti River and the east by the Chobe
National Park. Two-thirds of the Savuti Channel is situated
within this reserve. The region has all the habitat
diversity to make it a haven for wildlife. There are
excellent grasslands and water holes along the Savuti
channel and along the Linyanti.
Inland there are acacia and mopane forests which sustain
large numbers of Elephants in the winter months. The Savuti
area is famous for its Lions which have been documented in
National Geographic films, one of the most exciting being
the Joubert's "Eternal Enemies" - which depicts the
conflicts between Lions and Hyaena. It is in this reserve
that Duma Tau is situated.
Duma Tau is built under cool and shady mangosteen trees
overlooking an enormous lagoon east of the source of the
Duma Tau's accommodation is in luxurious raised tented
rooms under thatch with en-suite facilities - hot and cold
running water, flush toilets and an indoor shower. (16
bedded luxury camp). Each room has a spectacular vista over
the floodplains, with an additional outdoor shower to
enhance the view!
There is a dining room, pub, lounge, a plunge pool and a
guest toilet with a fantastic view!
