Little Tubu Camp
The leopard-spotting spot for small groups
Little Tubu Camp
This luxurious, stylish and intimately small tented camp is situated on Hunda Island, the largest island in the Jao reserve, on the western side of the Okavango Delta. Like it’s big sister Tubu Tree Camp, Little Tubu offers some of the best dryland viewing in the area. Although the two camps are separate, they are linked by a wooden walkway. The surrounding forests are a great place to see leopard, while other surrounding areas offer a consistent variety of typical Delta game.
At the lodge
Built raised off the ground, the main area is almost at canopy level, showcasing incredible views of the floodplain and blending seamlessly into the surrounding vegetation. The whole space is something special, with an elegantly curated mix of contemporary, eclectic and stylish African furniture. The lounge is a welcoming space with large comfortable couches, topped with plush, textured cushions. It flows into the luxurious dining area that leads out onto the deck and the outdoor bar. The campfire provides a great area to meet and discuss tales of the bush before dinner.
The camp consists of three en-suite tents and an extra tent to provide accommodation for larger groups or families. The small size of the camp keeps things exclusive and intimate. Elevated and built amongst an ancient forest, Little Tubu has a real tree-house feel with traditional decor and light, airy interiors. Each tent has indoor and outdoor showers as well as a private deck with royal views. Like the surroundings, the decor is a feast for the senses - a rich tapestry of natural textures, woven mats, and local woods with stories of their own.
Day game drives reveal a plethora of creatures and critters, while thrilling night drives shed light onto some unusual nocturnal chaps. A visit to the Delta without a mokoro (dug out canoe) trip is indeed a crime. These trips provide the chance to glide silently through the meandering waterways as you soak up the scenery and wildlife. There are also water level dependant boating trips which explore channels further afield. A spot of catch and release fishing is also a possibility. A real highlight is a star bed sleep out for up to four people.
