DumaTau Camp, Linyanti, Botswana

DumaTau Camp is a Classic Camp

4Cs Projects at DumaTau Camp

In 2012, DumaTau was rebuilt on a new site. We therefore used the opportunity to enhance the camp’s Environmental Management System standards. The camp was built using Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) approved wood and positioned off the ground to minimise direct impact.


Green Operations Systems

DumaTau’s energy-efficient systems – solar power (it operates off a 30 kW solar power system), above-ground sewage and energy saving lights – ensure that its carbon footprint is as low as possible. All in all, DumaTau saves 47.8 tonnes of CO2 a year.

The Elephant Challenge

Perhaps the most topical issue for Botswana is its very large elephant population and the possible impact on vegetation and other animal species. As a result we have facilitated and partially funded two MSc studies researching this challenge.

Conservation Projects

DumaTau works closely with local government bodies to ensure the conservation of wildlife in the area. It carries out dedicated conservation and research focused on species on the IUCN Red List such as the African wild dog, elephant, lion and roan antelope.

Long Run Alliance

DumaTau is a Long Run Alliance member, meaning the camp is dedicated to sustainability through the 4Cs (conservation, community, culture and commerce) and a leader in sustainable tourism, biodiversity conservation, community development and cultural stewardship.
