Duma Tau is a firm favourite of ours at Tailormade Africa. It is simply beautiful and has managed to find that perfect harmony for being a luxury safari camp whilst maintaining the wilderness and safari focus that all camps should aim to achieve. Not quite at the standard to make it a 5-star camp so to speak but in our opinion Duma tau is not far away from being our idea of perfect.
The camp is situated on the front of an Ox-bow lake of the Linyanti river with a small jetty jutting out from the main mess area. Large light coloured canvas awnings decorate the edge of the waterfront of 10 guest suites and the main living and dining area. All 10 suites are large spacious rooms decorated to the highest standard all with power in the rooms for lights and charging. There is a camp swimming pool and a relax massage service for the after safari.
This region of Linyanti is a prime location for predators, with Lion Leopard and Wild Dog being particularly prevalent. It is also home to a “permanent den site for Wild dog. Along with a full range of safari activities both on land and water there are a couple of permanent hides in which to sit and watch the huge herds of Elephant and Buffalo drink meander past.
Duma Tau is a must do camp as part of a longer itinerary to Botswana or as a stand-alone camp for shorter trips. It remains a firm favorite of ours and has been included in the Tailormade Africa Collection of camp , a Gold standard of properties across Africa that we feel stand out.
