Just back from Botswana. Tubu Tree was our last camp. We spent 3 nights there. We really enjoyed this intimate camp (only 6 tents). We were extremely lucky to have Dan and Charmaine as camp managers. Dan and Charmaine are the camp relief managers spending their time between Jacana, Kwetsani and Tubu Tree. They are so so nice and very helpful. Dan is also a very experienced photographer which is great when you are like me keen to improve your photographic skills. The camp is lovely. We had very good sightings of leopards. Probably one of the best place to see leopards in the delta. We also saw elephants, hyenas, giraffes, impala, red lechwes, buffalos, lots of birds (malachite kingfishers, lilac breasted rollers, little bee eaters, fish eagles, martial eagles, tawny eagles, owls, wattled cranes...) It has also to be underlined that when we went there were no lions on Hunda island due to the high water levels. Being our 4th and last camp, we were a bit more relaxed and enjoyed mokoro and the boat activities.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Remote leopard viewing enclave on the western floodplains of the Okavango.Tubu Tree lies on the remote Hunda Island, the largest area of permanently dry land in this region of the Okavango Delta. As its name implies, it lies in the dappled shade of large trees, its raised dining and lounge, pool and open bar areas almost within the canopy of a marula tree and looking out over a grassy floodplain. The whole camp is connected by raised wooden boardwalks so that one can literally wander amongst the leaves.HighlightsTubu Tree’s location and easy access to both water and dry-land habitats, ranging from dry Kalahari sandveld to mopane and riverine forest edging on permanent waterways, ensures varied and spectacular game viewing. There are good concentrations of zebra and wildebeest on the floodplains as well as elephant, red lechwe, tsessebe and giraffe. Leopard and spotted hyaena viewing is particularly good. 8 Tents (including 1 Family Tent): Raised on wooden platforms, en-suite bathrooms; outdoor shower; private front deckExperiences: Day and night game drivesBoating and mokoro excursions (seasonal) Catch-and-release fishing (seasonal) Seasonal hide for sleep-outs or game viewing ... more less
