New Wilderness Safaris camp to open in Botswana


Wilderness Safaris will be opening Little DumaTau, an exclusive and intimate camp with four tented suites in the Lineyanti Wildlife Reserve in Botswana in August.

Little DumaTau will be situated north of the current DumaTau Lodge, which closed for renovations in November this year and will reopen in August at the same time as Little DumaTau. Between the two camps there will be a new wellness space and spa overlooking the water, where guests can relax during the heat of the day.

DumaTau and Little DumaTau will both form part of Wilderness Safaris Premier portfolio. Each of the eight tented suites at DumaTau and four tents at Little DumaTau will have an expansive deck and plunge pool.

In addition to morning, afternoon and night game drives, both camps will offer boating excursions, nature walks and helicopter flights as optional activities.

"It is from the air that one can truly appreciate the wonders of the Lineyanti concession," said Wilderness Safaris Botswana managing director Kim Nixon. "Our guests at DumaTau will be able to contribute to the monitoring of the Linyanti's biodiversity from the air, helping to ensure the pathways and corridors are safe and open for the continued movement of wildlife, especially as the reserve is situated at the fulcrum of the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area."
