Creating a lot of excitement for the safari-loving-traveller post COVID19 lockdown, Wilderness Safaris revamped Dumatau, their beloved Linyanti camp, with every intention and motivation in mind to limit their carbon footprint. The beautiful camp now has a sister. Little Dumatau was created as an addition to the family while the big sister was repurposed and reinvented.
Named after the “roar of a lion”, Dumatau, located on the Osprey Lagoon in Northern Botswana in the Linyanti Region, this stunner of a camp exudes relaxation and luxury in its new architecture. The camp has done everything it could to keep its soul, and by repurposing existing elements of the original spaces, it has created a sense of nostalgia that return guests are bound to recognise. The camp has worked hard at limiting its carbon footprint, an essential factor for a camp running on 100% solar power.
Promoting fresh air and cool breezes, the camp now boasts seven suites, each 142 m2 big and one family suite, all with spacious wardrobe areas, luxurious outdoor showers and redesigned bathrooms.
New additions to the camp now include a wine room where guests can enjoy the continents famous wines in comfort and style and an outdoor dining deck and bush fire pit, all enhancing the guest experience.
Little Dumatau, located a short walk away, shares the new wellness centre and gym named Osprey Retreat with Dumatau guests but promotes a unique, intimate experience where guests can learn about the elephant conservation and the concession’s important biomonitoring project. Guests with a conservation interest will fall in love with this little gem, all the while enjoying every luxury its sister possesses.
As much as the lion roars, it is also known for lazing under trees and relaxing most of the day. These two camps articulate relaxation and bespoke luxury in many ways and offer new and repeat guests with an experience they are bound to leave open-jawed.
