Wilderness Safaris Opens the New DumaTau

Wilderness Safaris is delighted to announce the opening of the completely rebuilt DumaTau Camp, as well as Little DumaTau – a co-located but smaller and more intimate camp – in northern Botswana’s Linyanti Wilderness Reserve. The two new camps are situated on the same site as the previous DumaTau, to take advantage of the views over Osprey Lagoon and the opportunities to watch the wealth of wildlife – including the mega-herds of elephant for which the Linyanti region is known – from the camp itself.

In keeping with the new camps’ positioning within Wilderness Safaris’ Premier portfolio, the level of comfort and facilities has been greatly amplified through the rebuild, with a particular focus on ensuring a cool environment during the heat of the day. The central Osprey Retreat between the two camps features a separate pool, deli and Safari Boutique area, as a third public space between the main area of each camp and the private guest spaces.

Further upgrades include an extended deck (with plunge pool) and awnings to create pools of shade at each of DumaTau’s eight tented suites, and the four identical suites at Little DumaTau. Appropriately for a camp situated in the vast open spaces of the Linyanti, the accommodation has also been remodelled to offer more room and new opportunities to explore.

The design of the camp itself is intended to prompt questions and encourage guests to discover the purpose of the new DumaTau. The story of the camp and of the region is told through ‘curiosity boxes’ in the guest suites and interpretive library that focus on two of the most iconic – and itinerant – species that can be seen from DumaTau: elephants and wild dogs.
