Little Tubu Camp

Okavango Delta, Botswana

Platinum price level

Mango Opinion

We love the elevated location so that you have amazing views over the floodplains. The camp has an intimate and relaxed feel. They love to set up dinner out under the stars in a variety of locations around camp.

Little Tubu is located on the remote Hunda Island, the largest dry landmass in the Jao Concession. Hunda Island supports a patchwork of diverse habitats, ranging from Kalahari sandveld to mopane and acacia woodland to riverine forests on the permanent Okavango Delta channel systems. These in turn support an array of varied and exciting wildlife viewing experience. Nestled amongst a canopy of trees overlooking a seasonal riverbed, Little Tubu offers an intimate bush experience. Three traditionally styled tents on raised wooden platforms each have a private viewing deck, an outdoor shower and en-suite bathroom facilities. Elevated walkways link them to the main dining, bar and pool areas that are designed to blend seamlessly into the surrounding environment and maximise the spectacular views.

Wildlife seen around Little Tubu includes elephant, lion, Burchell's zebra, red lechwe, southern giraffe, tsessebe, blue wildebeest kudu, impala, bushbuck and leopard. The variety of birdlife is impressive, with both dry-land species and a multitude of wetland birds in the floodplains and waterways. Throughout the year, day and night wildlife drives are available. There are two platform hides on the Jao Concession, offering incredible up-close viewing or the unique opportunity to sleep out under the stars. During winter, the water levels around Tubu Tree rise and the floodplains become covered with water, which allows for a wide range of water activities, from boating and fishing to mokoro excursions.
