Duma Tau (meaning 'roar of the lion') is a ten-roomed luxury tented camp, in the private 125 000 hectare Linyanti Wildlife Reserve which borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park in northern Botswana. The camp is built on raised boardwalks under a shady grove of mangosteen trees, overlooking a large hippo-filled lagoon on the Linyanti waterways. The source of the Savuti Channel is close to the camp and game drives along the Savuti are one of the highlights of the camp.

Duma Tau Activities
Activities are diverse and allow guests time
on the water, on land and occasionally on foot. Day and night game
drives are conducted in open 4x4 vehicles along the Savuti Channel
and the banks of the Linyanti River. There are many hides in the area
where guests can enjoy wildlife viewing close up and away from a vehicle.
One of the best hides is right at the source of the Savuti and many
species of game and birdlife can usually be seen from this hide. The
area is famous for its Elephant concentrations in our winter months
and for the great game viewing all year. Huge herds of Elephant congregate
in winter along the waterways and lagoons - and at the waterholes
that are located along the Savuti Channel. During these dry months
Sable and Roan traverse the flood plains. All the predators - Lion,
Leopard, Cheetah and Wild Dog - feast on the prey species in the area,
including Impala, Zebra, Giraffe, Wildebeest, Lechwe, Tsessebe and
all the other plains game.
Duma Tau only accepts children 6 yrs and over. No childcare/baby-sitters
are provided for. Children must be under the care of their parents
at all times.
Please Note: Children 6-12 yrs require the use of a Private Vehicle
and Ranger for all activities - this will be at an additional charge.
