Tubu Tree Camp - Package from ± USD 5,200 - 4 Nights

Wildlife seen around Tubu Tree Camp includes elephant, lion, Burchell's zebra, red lechwe, southern giraffe, tsessebe, and blue wildebeest on the floodplains. Kudu, impala, leopard and bushbuck are also seen in the forested areas. 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.This affords Tubu Tree Camp the most diverse game viewing within the concession, from the water-loving lechwe to blue wildebeest of the plains.

The Camp                     
Tubu Tree is a small camp built on the western side of the Jao Concession’s isolated Hunda Island. Owing to its locale and easy access to diverse habitats, Tubu Tree ensures varied and spectacular game viewing. The camp is built in traditional style with five intimate tents on raised wooden platforms, taking in the marvellous scenery of the surrounding floodplain. Each tent has a private front deck, en-suite bathroom facilities and an outdoor shower. The main dining and lounge areas and pool are also tented and raised on platforms and an outdoor pub area lies under the canopy of a large marula tree.

Activities                           
Throughout the year day and night game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, as well as guided walks (which must be requested prior to travel), are available. There are two platform hides in the concession, offering incredible up-close viewing.During winter, the water levels around Tubu Tree Camp rise and the floodplains become covered with water (normally May to late September). This allows for a wide range of water activities from boating and fishing to mokoro trips.

-  Night drives with spotlight.
