Dumatau means "lion's roar" and one night we heard that roar outside our tent. This classic camp is located in the Linyanti concession on the more eastern part of Botswana. Guests reach the camp by small plane and then a 40 minute ride to the...More

This was the 2nd stop of our recent safari and we chose this camp due to the proximity to the channel to watch the elephants and hippos and we were not disappointed. The rooms are right on the waters edge with sweeping views yet private...More

After a small plane flight to a dirt run way, one takes about a 45 minute range rover trip to this bush camp. Located along the Linyati river, truly in the middle of nowhere, are ten lovely tents. The rooms are spacious, beds so comfortable...More

Duma Tau was the second camp of my Botswana safari. The camp is in a great position facing the Linyati swamp. Tents are adequately appointed with private decks and river views. The raised timber walkway connecting the rooms is designed to let the animals pass...More

Thank you Orford60, for the fabulous review and sharing your adventurous memories with us, sounds like you were on a hunt more than the predators you were tracking. The boma/ Floating fire deck was one of the last additions to the new DumaTau and has...More

Duma Tau is a 40 to 60 minute flight from Maun depending on the size of your plane and then a 30 minute drive from the airstrip. Every minute of that trip, and all the distance you've gone beforehand to reach Botswana is absolutely worth...More
