Room types at Little DumaTau

1 of 1

Twin/Double Suite(s)

This charming camp is a haven of sophisticated elegance, with just four supremely spacious guest suites, each with a private plunge pool and comfortable lounge, and a capacious bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers.

Exploration is a theme that recurs throughout the history of this region – and forms a key part of the guest experience. The design of the camp itself is intended to prompt questions and encourage guests to discover the purpose of Wilderness Little DumaTau.

The story of the camp and of the region is told through ‘curiosity boxes’ in the guest suites, and interpretive library in the main area, with the focus on two of the most iconic – and itinerant – species that can be seen from Wilderness Little DumaTau: elephants and African wild dogs.

Wilderness Little DumaTau – Game Drives

Wilderness Little DumaTau is located close to the source of the Savuti Channel, with access to the Linyanti Swamps, floodplains and mopane woodlands, thus offering an excellent combination of habitats. Game drives reveal the rich wildlife of the area, and as an important elephant corridor, the Linyanti is famed for the huge number of elephants seen here. The open 4x4 vehicles allow us to host four guests at a time, with each guest having a ‘window’ seat, thereby offering truly dedicated time with your enthusiastic guide.
