Room types at Tubu Tree Camp
Tucked away into a tree canopy, the spacious and light family unit has two adjoining tents with separate bathrooms and a shared lounge, with a deck offering cinematic views across the Delta.
Standard Twin/Double Tent(s)
Views abound from each elevated tent. Built in traditional safari style, the tents each have their own en-suite bathroom facilities, an outdoor shower, as well as a private viewing deck overlooking the surrounding open, grassy floodplains that teem with iconic African wildlife.
Elevated walkways link the tents to the main dining, bar and pool areas that are designed to blend seamlessly into the surrounding environment, and to maximise the spectacular views. The perfect setting for a relaxing sundowner.
Activities at Tubu Tree Camp
Wilderness Tubu Tree – Birding
The Jao Reserve is a must for bird enthusiasts, with large concentrations of wattled crane, as well as slaty egret, rosy-throated longclaw and African skimmer. In contrast, the dryer Hunda Island sports crimson-breasted shrike and Meyer’s parrot.
Wilderness Tubu Tree – Boating *
Water-level dependent, excursions in our boat allow for good game viewing in the channels further away from camp, often yielding fabulous sightings of hippo and crocodile and maybe even the elusive sitatunga.
* Water levels permitting.
Wilderness Tubu Tree – Fishing *
Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer seasonally on a catch and release basis.
* Note that fishing is seasonal as it is prohibited by Botswana law in January and February due to breeding purposes.
Wilderness Tubu Tree – Game Drives
Morning and afternoon game drives on Hunda Island reveal the spectacular wildlife here where leopard and other big game often feature.
Wilderness Tubu Tree – Hide & Star Bed
There are two hides in the area, one of which is located approximately twenty minutes from camp. This hide can be beautifully transformed into a wonderful star bed that offers a unique wilderness experience under the star studded African sky.
Wilderness Tubu Tree – Mokoro Excursions *
There is no better way of enjoying the crystal-clear waters of the Delta and its wildlife than by traditional mokoro (dugout canoe), which reveal the smaller fascinating critters and striking waterbirds of the region.
* Water levels permitting.
Wilderness Tubu Tree – Night Drives
A one-of-a-kind safari experience awaits after dark where we go in search of the extraordinary creatures of the night. Porcupine, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and lesser bushbaby are just some of these.
