Wilderness Tubu Tree

Listen out for the spine-tingling cry of the fish-eagle among hundreds of other birds, as your mokoro glides past waterlilies and tiny reed frogs. Feel your heart race on a boat ride past hippos, crocs, or even rare sitatungas. Try your hand at catch-and-release fishing, or take to the skies by helicopter, soaring above the Okavango Delta’s expanse.

A quest to conserve & protect

Tubu Tree is nestled in one of the Okavango Delta’s most stunning wildlife-rich areas. Home to herds of red lechwe, lions, leopards and pods of hippos, as well as myriad smaller creatures. In our quest to conserve and protect the world’s most iconic wildlife destinations, we are intimately involved in projects that support sustainable conservation, specifically curbing poaching and overfishing.






Tubu Tree experiences

Start the day with a smile as you watch a family of elephants come into camp to shake their breakfast off nearby palm trees. Head out on a rewarding game drive across the vast plains spotting wildlife: lions, leopards, hyenas, zebras, wildebeest, giraffes, scores of brilliant birds. Take to the waters on a mokoro or boat, past mud-caked hippos, tiny reed frogs, kingfishers, and more.


Explore camps in the Okavango Delta

Located in north-western Botswana, the Okavango Delta is the world’s largest inland delta. Weaving through this wilderness is a rich network of channels, lined with towering papyrus and reeds. Famous for its abundant wildlife and predator sightings, Tubu Tree is set on Hunda Island, in the west of the beautiful Jao Reserve.
