Duma Tau Camp

Chobe & the North

Rating: Deluxe    

Duma Tau Camp overview

Duma Tau Camp has just 10 tents offering spacious and luxurious accommodation. The tents have canvas roofs that extend over the veranda offering shade. They are raised off the ground and each has an ensuite bathroom with hot and cold running water.

The camp has a dining room, separate bar and lounge overlooking the hippo-filled lagoon. These areas are furnished in muted colours and have traditional safari furniture and plenty of comfy spaces to settle into for some downtime between activities. Many meals are served out on the deck overlooking the water. There's a fire pit set in a circular deck which makes a great venue for sundowners. The swimming pool provides welcome relief from the heat during the day. 

While at Duma Tau you'll be offered day and night game drives take place along the Savuti Channel and Linyanti River. Other activities include boating (when water levels allow) and guided nature walks. Birding here is excellent and the Savute Channel is known for high concentrations of eagles and raptors. Fishing, along with basic fishing gear is available on a catch and release basis (though prohibited in January and February). For the more adventurous, try the Zibadianja Lagoon Star Bed which sleeps 2 or a family of 4 (teenage children only). It's a unique and exciting experience.
