Okavango Delta, Botswana
Huddled in the 60,000 hectare Jao Reserve, Tubu Tree Camp offers the best of both land and water safaris in Botswana’s Okavango Delta.
Comprising of 5 very comfortable tents built on raised wooden platforms, each with a private front deck offering picturesque vistas of the floodplains, Tubu Tree Camp sleeps up to a maximum of 10 guests. Each tent has an en suite bathroom, as well as a private outdoor shower and the main dining and lounge areas are also built on raised platforms.
Tubu Tree Camp has two platform hides offering incredible up-close wildlife viewing and also offers game drives with experienced guides in 4X4 vehicles during the day and night. These drives are especially exciting later in the winter when the wildlife is pushed on to the concessions as the floods arrive. Winter season also allows for a wide range of water activities from boating and fishing to mokoro trips.
The diverse habitats surrounding the camp ensure varied and interesting game viewing. Wildlife seen here includes zebra, red lechwe, giraffe, tsessebe, wildebeest, kudu and bushbuck, with the camp being a particularly good base from which to view leopards.
