"Tubu Tree and Little Tubu are 2 camps connected by walkways. I stayed at Little Tubu, but also popped in to see Tubu Tree. I like both the camps and they both have a very similar atmosphere. They're friendly, with lovely airy tented rooms with everything you need and shaded by the trees surrounding the camp. The verandahs all look out onto a gorgeous open plain backed with trees. The camps are known for being a good place to see leopards, and sure enough we saw a leopard and cub at a kill within an hour of being on our game drive. You won't often see lions, wild dogs or cheetahs here, which is why leopards do so well. We got also got decent sightings of other wildlife such as eles, zebras, giraffes, warthogs, hippos, springbok... I'd happily come again, and would also recommend Little Tubu as a good spot for a whole family to take over as a private camp. "
