Savuti / Linyanti area, Duma Tau Camp
Our group of three enjoyed a boat trip on the Linyanti river over our last lunchtime at Duma Tau. This gave us several close encounters with elephants, some of which were not impressed by our proximity. Wire-tail swallows come close and even nest on the boat since it resembles their natural nesting sites which are floating islands. Also seen later were the snake bird, a sort of cormorant with its very flexible neck, the huge goliath heron and the rare wattled crane.
