Tubu Tree Camp (Okavango Delta) Botswana
Tubu Tree Camp is situated in the Jao Reserve, an area of
60,000 hectares, in Botswana's Okavango Delta. It is built
on a private reserve bordering on the Moremi Game Reserve,
to the west of Mombo, in the western area of the reserve.
Tubu Tree Camp offers both land and water activities,
depending on the fluctuating levels of the Okavango's
This camp is built on the western side of a large island
called Hunda that has diverse vegetation ranging from dry
Kalahari sandveld, through mopane forest and riverine forest
on the edge of permanent waterways and floodplains.
Tubu Tree Camp is a traditional style tented safari camp
built on to raised wooden platforms to take best advantage
of the beautiful view over the floodplains. The camp sleeps
a maximum of 10 guests in 5 large and comfortable tents. The
tents have a small and private deck in front.
Each tent has en suite bathroom facilities, with hot and
cold running water, consisting of flush toilet, hand basin,
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.
Tubu Tree Camp offers game drives with experienced guides
in open 4 x 4 vehicles during the day and night, as well as
walking with an armed guide. When the flood is in, boating,
fishing and mokoro trips are also offered.
Full day adventurous transfers by mekoros can also be
undertaken during the flood season, to transfer to Jacana
Camp that is a water camp in the eastern area of the Jao
Game Viewing / Activities:
A variety of habitats ensures diverse and interesting
game viewing, as well as spectacular birding. Wildlife seen
here includes Elephant, Lion, Zebra, Red Lechwe, Giraffe,
Tsessebe, and Wildebeest on the floodplains. Kudu, Impala,
Leopard and Bushbuck are also seen in the forested areas.
During our winter months, the water levels rise and the
floodplains become covered with water, permitting water
activities. The variety of bird life is impressive with dry
land species seen on the large islands and all the wetland
birds seen on the floodplains and waterways.
