A mosaic of interconnecting diverse habitats, ranging from dry Kalahari sandveld to mopane and riverine forest edging on permanent waterways, ensures diverse and spectacular game viewing.
Tubu Tree Camp is built in traditional style, with elevated wooden walkways connecting eight tents on raised platforms, each with picturesque vistas of the floodplain from a private front deck. En-suite bathroom facilities and an outdoor shower are standard.
With commanding views of the wonderful scenery, the main dining, lounge areas and pool are also raised, while an open bar area is shaded by the canopy of a large marula tree.
Open all year round
Throughout the year day and night game drives in open 4×4 vehicles are available. There are two platform hides in the concession, offering incredible up-close viewing, or an opportunity to sleep out under the stars.
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.

Kudu, impala, bushbuck and leopard are also seen in the forested areas.
The variety of bird life is impressive, with dry-land species seen on the large islands and a multitude of wetland birds seen on the floodplains and waterways.
