What to Expect

Located in the heart of the wilderness, DumaTau Camp offers unparalleled access to the diverse habitats of the Linyanti Swamps, floodplains, and mopane woodlands. As the dry winter months set in, witness the mesmerizing spectacle of massive elephant herds congregating along the waterways and lagoons.

The area is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, with sightings of red lechwe, Burchell’s zebras, giraffes, buffalos, and warthogs. Prepare to be enthralled by the presence of apex predators, including lions, leopards, cheetahs, African wild dogs, and spotted hyenas. Marvel at the immense concentrations of hippos and crocodiles that inhabit the iconic Savuti Channel, adding to the allure of this extraordinary DumaTau Camp experience.

  • Wilderness DumaTau takes full advantage of its 45 kilometres (28 miles) of exclusive traversing river frontage, and both banks of the Savuti Channel
  • The Linyanti Wildlife Reserve is famous for its huge concentrations of elephants in the dry season, as well as year-round game viewing; thus, the varied woodland habitats, and ancient floodplains along the Linyanti fault line, make the Linyanti an essential part of any Botswana safari
