DumaTau Camp, meaning roar of the lion, is a ten-roomed (eight twin and two family) luxury tented camp located in the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve (Linyanti Concession) that borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park. It is situated close to the source of the Savute Channel on Osprey Lagoon, one of the many lagoons within the Linyanti Swamp system, and between two elephant corridors all of which results in a plethora of wildlife on game drives along the Savute.
Highlights of DumaTau Camp:
- As an important elephant corridor, the Linyanti is famed for the huge number of elephants seen here
- In the midst of the hunting grounds of lion and the critically endangered wild dog
- The sweeping and dramatic river views from camp are nothing short of spectacular
