The setting of Tubu Tree is lovely and remote – a true escape. This escape does come at a price, which we felt was a bit too high. Our game drives with Seretse were fabulous, and he is passionate about wildlife – patiently answering our many questions with his vast experience and knowledge. He was also helpful in teaching us...

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
