Tubu Tree Camp is situated in the Jao Reserve, an area of 60,000 hectares, in Botswana’s Okavango Delta. It is built on a private reserve bordering on the Moremi Game Reserve, to the west of Mombo, in the western area of the reserve. Tubu Tree Camp offers both land and water activities, depending on the fluctuating levels of the Okavango’s floodwater. This camp is built on the western side of a large island called Hunda that has diverse vegetation ranging from dry Kalahari sandveld, through mopane forest and riverine forest on the edge of permanent waterways and floodplains.
