Tubu Tree Camp Introduction
Tubu Tree Camp is situated in the Jao Concession in the magnificent Okavango Delta. Tucked away on the western side of Hunda Island, Tubu offers spectacular views, a variety of activities as well as the most diverse game viewing experience in the area.
Located on Hunda Island, Tubu Tree Camp is built in traditional style, with elevated wooden walkways connecting eight tents on raised platforms – each with picturesque lookouts of the surrounding floodplains from a private deck. En-suite bathroom facilities and an outdoor shower are standard, while a family unit consisting of two adjoining tents and separate bathrooms share a lounge. The main dining and lounge areas and pool are raised to maximise the vistas, and an open bar area is shaded by a large marula tree.
Hunda Island is known for its concentrations of game and offers both spectacular wildlife viewing on land, and tranquil adventures on the water. This combination of activities makes Tubu a complete Delta adventure. Wildlife seen around Tubu Tree includes elephant, lion, Burchell's zebra, red lechwe, southern giraffe, tsessebe, and blue wildebeest on the floodplains. Kudu, impala, bushbuck and leopard are also seen in the forested areas. The variety of birdlife is impressive, with dry-land species seen on the larger islands and a multitude of wetland birds seen on the floodplains and waterways.

Tubu Tree Camp Game Viewing and Activities
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 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.
There is no better way of enjoying the crystal-clear waters of the Delta and its wildlife than by traditional mokoro, which reveal the smaller fascinating critters and striking waterbirds of the region. 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.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.
