Tubu Tree Camp
Tubu Tree Camp is a small, traditional tented safari camp in the 600km² (60,000 hectare) Jao Reserve, on the west of the Okavango Delta. This reserve is dominated by permanent wetlands with deep water channels, seasonal floodplains and islands. It receives a lot of water during the annual floods (around May to September), when most of the reserve is best-suited to a water-based Delta experience. However, Tubu is built on Hunda Island, the largest dry island in the reserve – so when the floods arrive, the game drives from Tubu Tree offer the best game sightings in the area.
Our view of Tubu Tree Camp
Tubu Tree Camp is comfortable and its small size appeals to travellers who prefer a more intimate feel. Our experience here in previous years has been that, in the dry season, the game viewing on this western side of the Delta tends to be quieter than in other parts of the Okavango. (A trend that's often reversed during the rainy season!) That said, with its location on the permanently dry Hunda Island, Tubu Tree offers the reserve's best game viewing – and has a track record of particularly good leopard sightings.
