Activities at DumaTau
DumaTau - Fire Deck
The outdoor stargazing/floating fire deck will continue to be a highlight for guests as they are almost immersed in the Linyanti River
DumaTau - Game Drives
Game drives, day and night, reveal the rich wildlife of the area where predators and elephant are often the highlight. Plains game and diverse birdlife offer fantastic sightings as well. The open 4x4 vehicles (Land Cruisers) allow us to host four guests at a time (each having a ‘window’ seat), offering a more exclusive experience and dedicated time with your passionate guide.
DumaTau - Guided Nature Walks
Seasonal and subject to the availability of a qualified walking guide, nature walks with skilled, armed guides are a wonderful way of getting closer to nature and observing the smaller things you miss when travelling by vehicle.
DumaTau - Night Drives
Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals that you wouldn’t see during the day. These often include lesser bushbaby, spring hare, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and, if you are extremely lucky, the elusive pangolin!
DumaTau - Star Bed
The DumaTau Star Bed (may be known as the Zibadianja Star Bed due to it’s location overlooking the Zibadianja Lagoon and Savuti Channel) is the perfect place from which to view and photograph animals and birds. This raised platform may also be used for an authentic and unique way to sleep out under the African skies surrounded by nature.
DumaTau - Wellness Centre
Between the two camps, a wellness centre with spa and gym, nestled into the bush for privacy and looking out over the water - where guests can relax during the heat of the day.
In-tent massages are available should you prefer to enjoy these offerings in the privacy of your tent. All treatments at extra cost.
DumaTau Camp - Birding
Birding is outstanding here, from Okavango specials to mopane woodland species. The Savuti Channel is famous for its high concentration of eagles and raptors; this area is internationally recognised as an IBA (Important Bird Area).
DumaTau Camp - Fishing
Seasonal fishing is permitted on a catch-and-release basis. The camp has a small stock of basic rods and reels.
DumaTau Camp - Seasonal Motorboat & River Barge
Water levels permitting, explore the Linyanti River by boat or barge, the latter perfect for picnics or sundowners or searching out those elusive birds so prevalent in the channels.
