My Wife and I visited Tubu tree Camp the first week of September,2017 and had a wonderful time.The wildlife drives were spectacular,particularly the elephants.The camp is elevated, and with good reason with all the elephants around.A Mokoro boat trip is definitely cool and we were fortunate enough to see a Malachite Kingfisher,the "Jewel of the Delta".The camp manager,Jared is a very talented and committed individual,who runs a very good camp.We had visited Chitable first,so this was a little different, normally I was told, with more water.On our last day, we managed to get the morning game drive in and it was fabulous.Overall,a great destination for a photo safari.

Room tip: Book a Mokoro boat ride.

We are glad to see you were able to tick off the Malachite Kingfisher from your check list and thrilled that you could share this time with you. We will be sure to pass on your fond words to Jared and all the great staff at Tubu Tree.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay in a very comfortable and well appointed tent. The setting is unique and the baboons provided non-stop entertainment. The staff is welcoming and friendly and we certainly will never forget the beautiful meals under the stars and the "sundowner" cocktails around a nearby waterhole. We also liked that the guides ate meals with us. Tubu Tree Camp understands hospitality and we loved our stay with them.

By far my favorite overnight experience anywhere in the world. We did a 10 day Botswana safari (and have done several other trips in Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa and here)...and this was our favorite camp. The wildlife is excellent, and the treehouse tents were comfortable. Sleeping with the sounds of the bush surrounding us was really magical. The main lobby and dinner area overlooking a large plain full of antelope and zebra was really lovely. A neighboring tourist was scared by a leopard just outside their tent and some elephants came to visit just outside our walkway. We had one of the best guides we have had in Africa with KG. Our bush dinner under the stars was one of the highlights of our Africa trip and we are still talking about it 6 months later...though bring your mosquito repellent! It's the most expensive "hotel" I've ever stayed at, but absolutely worth it. I'll be back for sure.

Dear Noah,

We are delighted to see how much you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for the beautiful words. We are thrilled to see that we were able to exceed your expectations. We hope the sightings in camp did not scare you too. Hunda Island is famous for its leopard sightings as well as its excellent densities of large game species.

Thank you again

This is a nice camp, although not as impressive as the other Wilderness Safari camps at which we stayed in southern Africa (e.g., Little Kulala, Hoanib, Chitabe Lediba, and Linkwasha). The tents were nice, but, again, less impressive than the accommodations at the other WS camps. The staff was very courteous and responsive to our needs and our guide was good.

My wife and I had thought the tents at Aman-i-Khas were already pretty impressive. Little did we know that those in Tubu Tree and Savuti camps would bring us to totally new levels of luxury tent-dwelling.

Raised above ground on a sturdy wooden platform, each tent at Tubu Tree is effectively a suite, easily accommodating a large, comfortable bed with mosquito net, behind which is the open wardrobe with battery-operated electronic safe. A long, double-basin vanity is placed along the tent's back wall. On opposite sides are the shower stall and sit-down flush toilet. Hot and cold running water with eco-friendly bath amenities come as standard.

Tent #5 is accessed via a wooden swing door on one side. Another swing door on the opposite side opens to a raised walkway that leads to the outdoor shower with separate shower heads for Him and Her.

At the foot of the bed is a large wooden storage chest. A jug of drinking water and glasses rest on a small folding table on one side of the bed. Further along, in one corner is a writing desk with a chair. In the opposite corner are two stuffed chairs with a small coffee table. The front of the tent has sliding doors which open onto a wide veranda with two cushioned metal chairs and a table; perfect for reading or enjoying the close-up views of wandering wildlife.

Each tent's thick thatched roof insulates effectively against heat. Light switches are well-positioned. While lack of air-conditioning and WiFi were not a problem, the absence of hairdryers did force some in our party to re-think their daily routine since we were committed to wake-up calls at 0600hrs, followed by breakfast at 0630hrs and morning game drives from 0700hrs.

It was fortuitous that we had scheduled 3 nights at Tubu Tree, followed by 2 each at Selinda and Savuti camps. Unexpected visa problems caused two of our party to arrive on the second day at Tubu Tree, and the final two flew in on our last day there. Lady Luck continued smiling on us as our incredible guides, Phenyo, Kambango and Kaizer made sure that amidst the good meals, friendly service and multitude of elephants, red lechwe, impala, kudu and avifauna, none of us missed sighting the leopard, lionesses and cubs, African wild dogs and a lioness killing a wildebeest.
