DumaTau, meaning ‘roar of the lion,’ is a luxury tented camp located in the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve that borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park. 




The 125 000-hectare (308 000-acre) Linyanti Concession bordering Chobe National Park’s western boundary is an enormous wildlife-rich area with an unrivalled atmosphere of remoteness and space. The bulk of the concession is comprised of different mopane woodland associations, but along the Linyanti River exists a strip of riparian forest and floodplain. The concession is bisected by an ancient watercourse – the Savuti Channel – famous as a sporadic and unusual watercourse, possibly as a result of tectonic activity in the area. Dry for many years, it started flowing again in 2008 which led to an influx of waterbirds and adaptation from the resident animals.
