Duma Tau is a small, luxury tented camp located in the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve that borders the western boundary of Botswana's legendary Chobe National Park. The camp is built under a shady grove of mangosteen trees and overlooks a large hippo-filled lagoon. The source of the famous Savuti Channel is close to the camp, and day and night game drives in open 4x4 vehicles along this game-packed waterway are full of drama.
The area is famous above all for its elephant population; huge herds congregate in winter (June to October) along the Linyanti's waterways. During these dry months, sable and roan antelope traverse the floodplains along with impala, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, lechwe, tsessebe and other plains game. No surprises then to learn that your days at Duma Tau will revolve around game viewing on the water, on land and on foot. There are many hides in the area, including an excellent one at the source of the Savuti, providing fantastic photographic opportunities.
