Wilderness Safaris' DumaTau Camp now open
[Thu 13/09/2012 09:44:26]
Wilderness Safaris is thrilled to announce the opening of DumaTau Camp on an exquisite new site on the banks of the Linyanti River in Botswana.
One of Wilderness' most popular camps for over 15 years, DumaTau Camp has been given a new lease on life and has been completely rebuilt a little further upstream from its original location, offering the ultimate safari experience along the river and in the bush.
Perfect for an unforgettable incentive, DumaTau Camphas been completely rebuilt and ready to welcome guests.
The camp's setting on the Linyanti River is in a prime section of the enormous 125 000-hectare Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, in northern Botswana, perfectly complementing the neighbouring Okavango Delta. This pristine area's range of habitats creates ideal conditions for prolific wildlife populations - enormous elephant herds, abundant hippo and plains game, followed by excellent predator numbers. Indeed, it is an integral stronghold for species like the critically endangered wild dog, as well as lion, leopard, cheetah and spotted hyena.
The Classic Camp's ten tented units (8 twin and two family) are raised off the ground to overlook the Osprey Lagoon, while in general, the architecture evokes the age of the explorers along with a sense of space, thanks to the wraparound clear-storey window providing dramatic views of the river.
Importantly, in line with the Wilderness 4Cs ethos, DumaTau Camp operates completely on solar energy, both for hot water and for lighting and other energy needs, and is built of FSC-standard timber. In addition, the camp has water-wise waste removal and is built with green and thermal insulating materials.
DumaTau Camp's location between two elephant corridors offers an exclusive river and land experience to returning and new guests, in a completely sustainable manner.
