Tubu Tree and Little Tubu Camps, Botswana

No-one can promise you’ll see leopards in the wild. But at Tubu Tree Camp, or its sister Little Tubu, you’ll have a good chance.

At Tubu Tree or Little Tubu Camp you will certainly see lion and elephant. And the thrill of driving up to a pride of sleeping big cats, or watching quietly as a giant, grey tusker walks slowly towards you is an experience never to be forgotten. Put either Tubu Tree or Little Tubu Camp on the itinerary of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Botswana and you’ll also, almost definitely, see herds of kudu, impala, brushbuck and red lechwe. Not to mention Burchell’s zebra, southern giraffe, tsessebe and blue wildebeest.

But will your ‘bag’ be complete without that leopard? If anyone can show you the most elusive – and therefore prized - of all the big cats, the expert guides and trackers of the two Tubu camps can.
