Duma Tau Camp
Western boundary of Chobe National Park
The name Duma Tau means “roar of the lion” in Setswana, and there are great opportunities for seeing lion at Duma Tau, as well as massive elephant concentrations and outstanding wildlife in general
As Duma Tau is situated close to the source of the Savute Channel on one of the many lagoons within the Linyanti Swamp system, game drives along the Savute are a highlight of a stay at Duma Tau.
Duma Tau Camp lies under a shady grove of mangosteen trees, raised off the ground to overlook a large hippo-filled lagoon. The main lodge, linked to the rooms by winding boardwalks, has open sides for 360 degree views of the lagoon and landscape surrounds. The dining room, pub and lounge are all raised to make the most of the stunning vistas. The swimming pool is a popular spot in the heat of the day. A well stocked curio shop offers local basketwork made by the local staff. The campfire is a perfect place to enjoy the stars and re-live the day’s events with fellow guests. Duma Tau Camp has 220v generator powered electricity.
Duma Tau has ten large, walk-in tents standing on wooden decks, each with thatched roof, en-suite facilities and a separate outdoor shower. The canvas walls allow guests to enjoy the night sounds of Africa from the comfort and safety of their beds. The bathroom facilities are en-suite, with hot and cold water and the additional outdoor shower is a wonderful feature for guests wanting to get even closer to nature. Each tent is equipped with mosquito nets, fans and a safe. One tent is suitable for a family sharing or four guests traveling together.
