Okavango Delta, Botswana

Platinum price level

Mango Opinion

Tubu Tree is a lovely bush camp. While the tents and main lounge area are on raised platforms.  The camp looks out onto a wide plain which is a favorite for all of the local wildlife. It enjoys quality land and water based activities much of the year. When the floods are high, wildlife drives can be limited.

Tubu Tree Camp is situated in the 60,000 hectare Jao Reserve which borders the Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana's Okavango Delta. It is a beautiful maze of waterways that weave between small islands of sky high grasses and towering trees that harbor an impressively diverse and abundant array of wildlife. The camp is a traditional style tented safari camp built on raised wooden platforms to take best advantage of the beautiful view over the floodplains. The camp accommodates guests in eight large, comfortable tents, each with a small private deck in front.

All the tents have en-suite bathroom facilities and private outdoor shower. The main dining and lounge areas are also large tents on raised platforms, with an outdoor pub area built under the canopy of a large Marula tree. Curious wildlife will venture right up to the camp, giving guests amazing sightings from the comfort of viewing decks.

Activities at Tubu Tree Camp mostly focus on day and night wildlife drives in open 4x4 vehicles. When the Okavangos annual flood is at its highest (normally May to late September), boating, fishing and mokoro trips are also offered. A variety of habitats ensures diverse and interesting game viewing. Wildlife seen here includes elephant, hippos, lion, zebra, red lechwe, giraffe, tsessebe, wildebeest as well as kudu, impala, leopard and bushbuck.
