Situated in the shade of a grove of mangosteen trees overlooking a lagoon that doubles as a hippo playground, Duma Tau Camp is famed for its lion and elephant concentrations that have been captured in many wildlife documentaries.
This luxury tented camp has just ten luxury thatch and canvas tents, raised on wooden platforms to make the most of the views and animal sightings in this remote, wildlife rich area of Botswana. Couple this with a Wilderness welcome, service and the enthusiasm of its resident guides and safari goers are certain to be impressed.
Enjoy game drives by day or by night or take to the water on a guided paddle through the Savute channel where elephant gather to quench their thirst. Keen walkers will also enjoy the opportunity to explore the area on foot and discover fascinating information from their guide.After a day’s activities, guests return to camp and freshen up for evenings punctuated with fascinating stories from their hosts and the promise of superb food and wine – made all the more pleasurable considering just how far from ‘civilisation’ one actually is.
Afternoon tea is a treat and the perfect treat after a lazy day spent lazing about admiring the views and looking out for passing wild or bird life. A visit to a hide offers keen photographers a chance to take up close shots of animals at the waterhole while there are also a number of raised platforms that allow you to do the same.
With a name that means lion’s roar and a position in the heart of an extremely isolated part of Africa, guests come to Duma Tau expecting a lot but after a few days of being at one with nature leave with so much more.
