Experience the wildlife-rich Linyanti Reserve at this exclusive Delta safari camp
Perched in the heart of the Linyanti Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta is DumaTau, a unique and luxurious safari escape that stretches across woodland, floodplains and waterways. DumaTau is close to the source of the Savuti Channel, boasting plenty of hippos and crocodiles, and in the Linyanti Swamps, a location that is rich in wildlife activity and has Africa’s highest density of elephants. The lodge overlooks a lagoon frequented by all kinds of game and offers exquisite, seasonal dining experiences. Guests can expect to see leopards, wild dogs, cheetahs and much more. DumaTau is dedicated to sustainability and runs entirely on solar power, while the lodge also participates in the conservation initiative Citizen Science.
Best time to go to Botswana
Botswana's climate ranges from arid to semi-arid and is marked by hot and rainy summers, usually between November and March. This ‘green’ season is the best time to spot migrating birds, predators, and baby animals. However, many lodges in the Okavango Delta close during these months, so do check before you book. The dry season, between April and October, is the prime time to spot animals as they frequent water sources. This is also when the Delta floods, making it a great time for water-based activities. These months are a fantastic time to visit the salt pans, which will be dry from about June to September.
