The raised Tubu Tree main area feels like an oversized tree house, with fantastic views over the seasonal floodplains in front of the camp. These plains can either be dry or completely submerged during the flood season when the land fills with water.
In the open-sided lounge, chill out on comfy sofas and chairs, perhaps with one of the handy reference books, or wander out on deck to take in the view and the ample animals that wander by. A viewing scope here can be handy to help identify animals a little way off, and the well-positioned loo with a view really should be checked out!
The dining area is large and only lightly decorated, but, winning in popularity is the quirky bar, hand carved from a large sausage tree and built around trees to the front of the camp. From the bar area, a wooden walkway leads down to a small plunge pool and sundeck, and – just beyond – a firepit for evening entertainment.
Tubu Tree Camp has eight tented chalets, built on individual decks, accessed from the main area along raised wooden walkways, often with smaller antelope feeding below. The tents are large and bright, with large sliding doors and mesh panels at the front. Comfortable chairs on the deck provide a perfect spot to sit and contemplate the surrounding plains. The family unit has two adjoining tents, separate bathrooms and a shared lounge.
