Linyanti Reserve, Botswana
10 tented villas, communal facilities, floating fire jetty.
Duma Tau, meaning ‘roar of the lion,’ is a ten-roomed (eight twin and two family) luxury tented camp located in the private Linyanti Wildlife Reserve that borders the western boundary of Chobe National Park.
The structures are raised off the ground to take advantage of the fantastic river views. Each en-suite tent is spacious, spreading out under a “canvas” tensile membrane roof, with clear-storey sliding doors and windows that allow for wide-angled views of the riverfront. There is an airy, expansive dining and lounge area and a pool, all overlooking the lagoon and its denizens. Duma Tau has a very light carbon footprint and runs on solar energy.
Nomadic Resort’s COO Neil Hendrikz was team participant in the design, manufacturing and installation in his previous position as Director of Tenthouse Structures.
