The iconic camp of Duma Tau, sit­u­ated on the banks of the Linyanti River in North­ern Botswana is all about in­cred­i­ble ar­chi­tec­ture and sub­lime in­te­ri­ors. Lo­cated be­tween two ele­phant cor­ri­dors, your ultimate sa­fari ex­pe­ri­ence along the river and in the bush starts right here.

When LIFE In­te­ri­ors+ Ar­chi­tec­ture+ Cre­ative Di­rec­tion were briefed to build a 10-unit Lux­ury Camp, com­pris­ing of eight twins and two fam­ily units, they found the most ex­quis­ite site on the Linyanti River. It has di­rect ac­cess to the abun­dant ele­phant, hippo and other wildlife pop­u­lat­ing this pris­tine area, of­fer­ing a very exclusive river and land ex­pe­ri­ence in a sus­tain­able man­ner.

Even though ‘Duma Tau’ means ‘roar of the lion’, ele­phant is king in this wa­tery won­der­land. The tran­quil set­ting on the Linyanti River lends it­self to in­com­pa­ra­ble in­ter­ac­tion with both ele­phant and hippo in their nat­u­ral river­ine habi­tat.

The fo­cus of the ar­chi­tec­ture is on a dra­matic sense of space, fused with hu­man scale in tents man­u­fac­tured of ten­sile fab­rics with gum pole up­rights, an­gled out-rig­ger arms en­cas­ing sheer, greige (not dyed or bleached) mesh walls and rope and leather de­tail­ing, al­low­ing a trans­parency that blurs the ex­te­rior land­scape and the in­te­rior vol­umes.
