A Visitor at the DumaTau Camp in Botswana

The highly popular DumaTau Camp of Wilderness Safaris has recently been given a new lease of life. Relocated to a different spot on the Linyanti River, the camp has been almost entirely rebuilt and keeping in mind with the tastes and preferences of its guests, has been adorned with most of the modern amenities that they need. For a better part of two decades, the DumaTau Camp of Wilderness Safaris has been a popular destination for wildlife lovers and provides one of the best locations to watch Africa’s wildlife.

Located on the banks of the Linyanti River the camp shares the prime 125,000-hectare known as the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve. Located in the northern part of Botswana, this is one of the best places to watch large herds of elephants, hippo, lion, cheetah, the endangered wild dogs, leopards, spotted hyena and other animals. Conveniently located adjacent to the famous Okavango Delta and right in the middle of two elephant trails this place is a treasure trove if someone is genuinely in love with Africa’s wildlife.

Accommodation is provided in a choice of two types of tents. There are eight twin bed accommodations and two family tents. The tents have been slightly raised so that they can offer a better view of the Osprey Lagoon at a distance. The overall design is reminiscent of the days of the explorers and despite the fact that there are ten tents in the enclosure; there are ample open spaces for one to enjoy nature at its serene best. Each tent has a wraparound clear-storey type window design which allows great views of the surroundings.

Maintaining the strict requirements of the 4Cs (Commerce, Conservation, Community and Culture) of the company, the entire DumaTau Camp harnesses and use only renewable energy obtained from the Sun. Everything from heating water to turning on the camp lighting and all other energy needs are obtained from solar energy only. Even the timber that has been used to build the camp is FSC-standard. Additionally there is an elaborate waste removal system in place which has been constructed using green technology and thermal insulating materials.
