Morning and afternoon game drives along the Savute in open 4×4 Land Rovers are the premier activity here. But water levels permitting, guests can also enjoy cruises on the channel itself by motorized boat or barge. Like so much of northern Botswana, the Linyanti has high concentrations of plains game including impala, wildebeest, red lechwe, zebra, buffalo, and antelope. And though DumaTau means “roar of the lion,” the region is best known for the large herds of elephant that frequent the waterways during the dry season. Depending on the availability, nature walks with skilled, armed guides are wonderful ways of getting close to nature and observing the smaller things missed from the vehicles. The camp’s Star Bed offers an authentic and unique way to sleep out under the crystal clear African skies surrounded by nature. Anglers can enjoy some catch and release fishing.
The common area encompasses a lounge, pub, dining room, swimming pool, and expansive viewing deck. At night guests can relax around the floating fire pit as they enjoy a drink and swap stories. DumaTau is an environmentally friendly property that’s reduced its carbon footprint and runs on solar energy.
