This is the new sister camp to the marvellous Tubu Tree camp. Little Tubu is actually just a short walk away from the main lodge connected via a raised wooden path, but provides a very comfortable and more intimate experience due to its smaller size and the fact that it is self sufficient.

 

Its standard of accommodation is really very good as are its services and the area is so changeable, being in the Jao concession with its yearly floods and waterways, that Little Tubu and its bigger sister offer the best and most varied activities in the concession.

 

We really like this camp and think that its a great addition to the area and could become on of our firm favourites.

Wildlife & Activities

 

Wildlife

 

This region as would be expected is strong on aquatic animals with large pods of hippo existing along side many and large crocodiles. Red lechwe are plentiful and this is a very good area to spot the hard to see sitatunga antelope.

 

Birdlife is also plentiful with something approaching 450 species of birds recorded. The areas regions are diverse but some of the birds most associated with the regions are revolve around the waterway and include the African fish eagle, African darter, great white pelican and saddle-billed stork.

The Camp

Camp Overview

 

Located on Hunda Island and nestled amongst a canopy of trees overlooking a seasonal riverbed, Little Tubu offers an exceptional and intimate bush experience for just six guests. The three traditional-style tents are on raised wooden platforms, each with a private viewing deck, an outdoor shower and en-suite bathroom facilities.

 

Elevated walkways link the tents to the main dining, bar and pool areas that are designed to blend seamlessly into the surrounding environment and maximise the Okavango views. The style of the camp and the setting create an authentic sense of being in a remote wilderness, and truly on safari – in comfort and style, but unquestionably in a wild place, among the prolific wildlife.

Lodge Layout

 

The lodge itself is a small affair although very well appointed. Raised quite high on platforms you can actually walk to the bigger Tubu Tree Lodge via a gangway.

 

A large tented structure held up by gumpoles has an open fronted aspect and is where the main communal lounge and dinning area sits. spacious and comfortable seating is complemented by rustic but elegant furnishings. As the camp only houses 6 people there is plenty of room to relax in privacy.

 

A large deck to the front acts a great viewing point over the floodplains, more seating is provided for relaxation. The main area sits under the canopy of shady trees as does the outside bar to the right and the there is also a short gangway to the front that leads to another lovely viewing deck.

 

a walkway to the left leads you to a private pool area, also slightly raised with great views.

Room Description

 

All the rooms form a line to the right of the main communal areas and are reachable via raised gangways.  Similar to the main area, they are constructed of canvas and gumpoles and are large chalet style rooms.

 

Each chalet is private and with a sizeable viewing deck at the front with seating. the front of the chalet is very open with large mosquito screen windows and large sliding doors, coupled with the windows to the sides the feeling is very open, light and airy.

 

A large bed dominates the central area of the room with lovely rugs and tasteful furnishings including a small seating area. To the rear is a sizeable bathroom area with dual washbasins and private toilet closet and shower area.

Camp Environment

 

Located in the same area as the main Camp Tubu Tree on Hunda Island, the largest area of permanently dry land in this region of the Okavango Delta, Little Tubu Camp is surrounded by the palatable grasses which lure many species of plains game. A range of diverse habitats, ranging from dry Kalahari sandveld to mopane and riverine forest on the edge of permanent waterways, also ensures diverse and spectacular game viewing. Within this concession, Little Tubu offers the best game drive experiences due to the size of its drier area.

 

Little Tubu Camp is located in the Jao Concession: 60,000 hectares of reserve against the western boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve in the north-western area of the Okavango Delta, Botswana, below the Panhandle. Lying in the very heart of the Okavango Delta, the Jao Concession embodies all the magic and mystique of the region. Littkle Tubu Camp is surrounded by narrow water channels cut their way through the papyrus and reed beds in the permanent delta to the north and east of the concession, providing the perfect environment for the elusive sitatunga and the rare Pel's Fishing-Owl.
