Hotel Overview


Duma Tau sits in the private 125,000 hectare Linyanti Concession, bordering the western boundary of Chobe National Park in northern Botswana.

Rooms at Duma Tau

There are ten large tents (including one family tent), all raised above the ground on wooden platforms. Bathrooms are ensuite, with indoor and outdoor showers, and outside there is a large deck from which guests can enjoy views over the lagoon.

Food and Facilities

Deep in the African bush, the emphasis at Duma Tau is all on the stunning natural surroundings. The main part of the camp (dining area, lounge and bar) looks out over the lagoon, and there is a fire lit nightly for evening stargazing. For hot summer's days, there's also a small plunge pool.

Activities at Duma Tau

Given the great concentration of game here, the primary activities are day and night game drives. Depending on water levels, short guided walks and relaxing boat trips on the river are also possible.
