Tubu Tree Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Tubu Tree Camp is a Classic Camp

Things to at Tubu Tree Camp

Tubu Tree’s location on Hunda Island and easy access to both water and dry-land habitats, ensures varied and spectacular game viewing.

Game drives

Morning and afternoon game drives on Hunda Island reveal the spectacular wildlife here where leopard and other big game often feature. Our open 4x4 Land Rovers each accommodate a maximum of seven people allowing each guest a ‘window’ seat.

Night drives

Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during normal daytime drives. Porcupine, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and lesser bushbaby are just some of these.

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.

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.

Hide and Star Bed

There are two hides in the area, one of which is located about 20 minutes from camp. This hide can be transformed into a Star Bed for sleep-outs for a maximum of four people at a time. The hide is equipped with a long-drop loo.

Fishing

Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer seasonally on a catch-and-release basis.

Birding

The Tubu area 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.
