Tubu Tree Camp
Tubu Tree Camp Botswana Guest Lounge
Tubu Tree Camp is located on Hunda Island, which is known for its concentrations of game and offers spectacular wildlife viewing on land and by boat, making for tranquil water adventures. This combination of activities guarantees your time at Tubu Tree Camp to provide a complete Okavango Delta experience. These picture-perfect floodplains within the private Jao Reserve are dotted with water-loving wildlife from one side and are frequented by predators, particularly leopards, wild dogs and hyenas.
The Jao Reserve receives a lot of water during the annual floods (around May to September), when it is for the most part best suited to a water-based Delta experience.
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.

Wildlife sightings around Tubu Tree include elephant, lion, Burchell's zebra, red lechwe, southern giraffe, tsessebe, and blue wildebeest on the floodplains. Kudu, impala, bushbuck, and leopard are usually seen in 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.
A hide near camp is transformed into the Tubu Star Star Bed at night, creating a unique sleep-out in the wild.
