DumaTau Camp is situated close to the source of the Savute Channel in the western part of the Linyanti - between two elephants corridors, offering an exclusive combination of land and river experience.


This is one of the oldest and best camps in Botswana. The camp is built on raised boardwalks under a shady grove of mangosteen trees, overlooking a large hippo-filled lagoon on the Linyanti waterways. The region has all the habitat diversity to make it a haven for wildlife.


Morning and afternoon game drives reveal the rich wildlife of the area, where predators and elephants are often the highlights. Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn't see during the day.  Enjoy game walks - game walks are a wonderful way of getting close to nature and observing the smaller things you miss when travelling by vehicle. Visitors will also enjoy Motorboat and River Barge.

If you’re looking to travel from South Africa to Botswana, you’ll need reliable wheels. Car hire Cape Town is cheap and easy, but a 4x4 might be more suitable for a holiday experience like this.
