Here your guide from Duma Tau Camp welcomes you and takes you to the camp, where you spend the next two nights.
Duma Tau Camp, meaning ‘roar of the lion,’ is located in the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve that borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park. It is situated close to the source of the Savute Channel – which results in a plethora of wildlife on game drives along the Savute. The area is well known for its high elephant concentration and a haven for game. Situated in the midst of the hunting grounds of lion and the critically endangered wild dog, an unrivalled atmosphere of remoteness and space is created for the honeymooners.
Settle in, make yourself at home, and work with your guides to decide on all the activities you would like to try during your stay. From game drives, night drives, nature walks and viewing hides to motorboat and river barge trips as well as fishing, everything is on offer.
Duma Tau Camp is raised off the ground to take advantage of the fantastic river views. Each of the 10 en-suite tents is spacious, spreading out under a canvas roof, with clear-storey sliding doors and windows that allow for wide-angled views of the riverfront. These sweeping and dramatic views are nothing short of spectacular. At the main area is an airy, expansive dining room, where mouth-watering meals are served. The lounge area, the pub and the pool are all overlooking the lagoon and its denizens.
Day 3 – Day 6 | Savuti Camp, Savuti, Botswana
After breakfast you will be taken to the airstrip where your small aircraft is already waiting to take you to the northern end of Botswana and the Linyanti. This area enjoys the perfect safari position between the Moremi Game Reserve and the Chobe Enclave. Your guide from Savuti Camp is already waiting for you at the airstrip to take you to your destination for the next 3 nights.
The camp is beautifully placed and when you step through the door into your chalet, the allure of the following days will be obvious. A combination of canvas and thatch with a view towards the now flowing Savuti Channels will seduce you to relax and kick back. The draw of a safari however will stir you to leave your private love nest and participate in one of the activities on offer at the camp. There is the option for a classic game drive to view animals in their natural environment combined with a bush walk or a romantic Makoro ride on the crystal waters of the channels. Glide through this eco system and watch as herds of elephants silently cross your water path.
Relax at the swimming pool and enjoy the time together with an indulgent private dinner on the deck of your chalet. Appreciate the privacy and superb service offered accompanied by brilliant game sightings.

This camp offers a romantic setting and the sort of honeymoon extravagance that you dreamed of. Each tent is a very private suite with its own plunge pool and deck.
