Tubu Tree Camp Description
Eight traditional safari tents are built on elevated decks with interconnecting raised walkways. Each tent has a view over the floodplains from a private viewing deck. En-suite bathrooms, an outdoor shower, ceiling fans and tea and coffee making facilities are in each tent.
Vistas over the Delta have been maximised by building the main areas on raised platforms. The large open and airy tented lounge, tented dining room and pool are shaded by large marula trees. Evenings are spend around a traditional camp fire.
Tubu Tree Camp Game Viewing and Wildlife Activities
The Jao Concession is close to the Panhandle in the Delta’s northwest region. Vegetation varies from floodplains with lush palm islands to the dryer Hunda Island which is covered in acacia and mopane woodlands. This combination also makes for fantastic bird watching.
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.
Activities at Tubu Tree Camp include day and night game drives in open 4 x 4 vehicles where each guest has a window seat. Nature walks with an armed guide give guests a different perspective of the area. When the Okavango’s annual flood is at its highest (normally May to late September), boating, fishing and mokoro trips are also offered. Fishing on a catch and release basis with basic rods & reels supplied by camp. A raised hide located about 20 minutes from camp.
