A much-loved camp since 1997, DumaTau Wilderness Safari Camp has been in the process of upgrading DumaTau and Little DumaTau - two premier camps in the wonder-filled Linyanti Wildlife Reserve.
DumaTau and Little DumaTau are sister camps, with Little DumaTau - which has become a Premier Camp - located north of the current DumaTau.
Between the two will be a new wellness-space and spa looking out over the water, where guests can relax during the heat of the day: lie at the lap pool on the shaded deck, enjoy snacks from the deli and browse the trading store.
DumaTau is situated close to the source of the Savute Channel on Osprey Lagoon, one of the many lagoons within the Linyanti Swamp system, and between two elephants “corridors” – all of which results in a plethora of wildlife. The Linyanti has one of the world’s largest elephant meta-herds, and with the many other species passing through seasonally, requires sensitive conservation initiatives that contribute to the sustainability of wildlife as well as the area itself.
The region is also part of three key wild dog dispersal corridors within Botswana and is the highest frequented of the three. With only about 6,000 wild dog on the continent, the Linyanti is a vital core conservation area, which aids in supporting and strengthening wild dog populations in areas devoid of human-wildlife conflict.
Perfect for: Spotting elephants and wild-dogs as it’s positioned between two key wildlife dispersal corridors. Key players in conservation in the region. The Linyanti Wildlife Reserve boasts the area’s greatest habitat diversity and is an IBA (Important Bird Area). DumaTau continues to play a crucial role in the biodiversity conservation of the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA-TFCA) and the preservation of important corridors that enable free wildlife movement between five African countries. Room rates start from £1,603 per night per person.
