Duma Tau (Lion's Roar) is a ten room luxury tented camp located in the wildlife rich Linyanti Wildlife Reserve which borders the Chobe National Park. Duma Tau Camp is built on raised boardwalks under a shady grove of mangosteen trees, overlooking a large hippo filled lagoon on the Linyanti waterways. The source of the Savuti Channel is close to the camp and game drives along the Savuti are one of the highlights of the camp. Duma Tau was completely rebuilt in 2012 and is an eco-friendly camp and operates completely on solar energy.
What Africa Uncovered says...
Duma Tau Camp is an ideal base to explore the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve and a few nights at duma Tau after a safari in the Okavango Delta is highly recommended.
Duma Tau is a 10 roomed luxury tented camp. The sizeable rooms have thatched roofs and canvas walls, with both indoor and outdoor showers, as well as full en-suite bathrooms. The open plan lounge, dining area and bar area all have amazing views and are linked by a raised walkway to a swimming pool and viewing deck. The lodge has a great intimate atmosphere and is run superbly by an experienced and enthusiastic staff.
Situated at the edge of thick mopane woodland, the camp is raised on wooden stilts overlooking open grasslands and a hippo filled lagoon.
What our clients say
"We loved our stay at Duma Tau. The setting of the camp was great and we even got to see Wild Dogs which is a first for us on safari! Our guide was great and the managers were lovely. All in all a wonderful camp!"

Guests can enjoy day and night game drives, as well as nature walks along the Linyanti River and Savuti Channel, while the camp's boat will take visitors to view Hippos. There are also a number of hides from where viewing and photography can take place at close range. The area is famous for its Elephant concentrations in the winter months and for the great game viewing all year.
Huge herds of Elephant congregate in winter along the waterways and lagoons and at the waterholes that are located along the Savuti Channel. During these dry months Sable and Roan traverse the flood plains. All the predators: Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and Wild Dog - feast on the prey species in the area, including Impala, Zebra, Giraffe, Wildebeest, Lechwe, Tsessebe and all the other plains game. There are high concentrations of Waterbuck, Buffalo, Baboon, Monkey, Warthog and Hyena. Also to be found are Bush babies, Spring Hare, Aardwolf, Serval and Genet.
