Tubu Tree Camp is located on Hunda Island, an area which is known for its concentrations of game and offers both spectacular wildlife viewing on land, and tranquil adventures on the water. This combination of activities makes Tubu a complete Delta adventure.
Morning and afternoon game drives on Hunda Island reveal the spectacular wildlife here where leopard and other big game often feature. The open 4x4 Land Rovers each accommodate a maximum of 7 people allowing each guest a ‘window’ seat. Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during normal daytime drives. Porcupine, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and lesser bushbaby are just some of these. The Tubu area is also a must for bird enthusiasts, with large concentrations of wattled crane, as well as slaty egret, rosy-throated longclaw and African skimmer. In contrast, the dryer Hunda Island sports crimson-breasted shrike and Meyer’s parrot.
There is no better way of enjoying the crystal-clear waters of the Delta and its wildlife than by traditional mokoro (dugout canoe), which reveal the smaller fascinating critters and striking waterbirds of the region. As well as this, excursions in a small motorised boat (water-level dependent) allow for good game viewing in the channels further away from camp, often yielding fabulous sightings of hippo and crocodile and maybe even the elusive sitatunga.
There are 2 hides in the area, one of which is located about 20 minutes from camp. This hide can be transformed into a Star Bed for sleep-outs for a maximum of 4 people at a time.
Tubu Tree Camp is built in traditional style, with elevated wooden walkways connecting 8 tents on raised platforms - each with picturesque lookouts of the surrounding floodplains from a private deck.
En-suite bathroom facilities and an outdoor shower are standard, while a family unit consisting of t2 adjoining tents and separate bathrooms share a lounge.
The main dining and lounge areas and pool are raised to maximise the vistas, and an open bar area is shaded by a large marula tree.
All meals; twice daily scheduled camp activities; Park fees; a laundry service; and all local drinks (excluding premium imported brands and champagne) are included.
Children of any age are welcome. Rates available on request.
