This was our last of 3 Wilderness Safari camps we stayed at. We had a wonderful time here!
The Managers we worked closely with (Gideon and Gabby) were amazingly professional when we encountered issues with a few of the other guests who were rude and difficult to be around but the staff handled the situation with style and grace. The issue was in no way their fault and the situation showed the excellent training they receive. I should note that other than these four we had amazing experiences with all the other guests we met throughout our trip and exchanged email address and have already been in touch with many. Including the 12 Swiss guests who were at our camp at the same time!!!
This camp had the best food of the three we visited, the food was very good at the others, but Duma Tau won the award for best food. The food at all the camps were simple, well spiced and delicious - but there was something special at Duma Tau!
Our guide, Ron, was wonderful and also did a great job with our "special" situation. He was knowledgeable and fun to be with, always finding great animals for us to see!! Watching a herd of elephant decide to cross the river to Namibia and then do it was a sight to see!
I would highly recommend this camp and Wilderness Safaris!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Perhaps the best game viewing in far northern Botswana - from its newest and most stylish camp. DumaTau means "roar of the lion," but the elephant reigns here. The camp is set on a lagoon on the Linyanti River between two "elephant highways," affording unparalleled viewing of these iconic mammals, along with other wildlife. Together with sweeping, dramatic views of the river, the architecture of the camp expresses the explorer aesthetic, as well as the idea of space. There is an airy dining and lounge area, and a pool, all taking advantage of the superb view of the lagoon. Highlights DumaTau is located close to the source of the Savute Channel, with access to the Linyanti Swamps, floodplains and extensive mopane woodlands, thus offering an excellent combination of land and river. During winter, large elephant herds traverse the area. Chances of viewing leopard, lion and wild dog are excellent, along with other large mammals like hippo, red lechwe, giraffe, waterbuck, kudu, impala and occasional buffalo. 10 Tents (including 2 Family Tents): Rebuilt 2012; en-suite; spacious; raised off the ground; clear-storey window; 100% solar powered Experiences: Day and night game drives • Nature walks (on request) • Boating and barge (seasonal) • Game viewing hides • Catch-and-release fishing (seasonal) ... more less
