Little Tubu is a new camp in the Jao Concession and located near its sister camp, Tubu Tree. The intimate camp features just three tents each with a small, private deck in front, en suite bathroom and private outdoor shower. The main lounge area has a unique bar built into a waterberry tree and there is an expansive deck overlooking the floodplains.
Activities at Little Tubu include day and night game drives in open 4x4 vehicles. When the Okavango's annual flood is at its highest (normally May to late September), boating, fishing and mokoro trips are also offered. A variety of habitats ensures diverse and interesting game viewing. Wildlife seen here includes elephant, lion, zebra, red lechwe, giraffe, tsessebe, wildebeest as well as kudu, impala, leopard and bushbuck.
"The last camp was Little Tubu. The director, Philly, was very welcoming and a 'bigger than life' type of person. She and the guide, Bee, ate meals with us, and we spent a lot of time laughing during those meals. They're great people. Bee was also very knowledgeable about the animals and environment, though he was not quite as polished as our other guides. But I can't say it enough--all of the guides we had were top-notch. Little Tubu was a unique little place in that it was basically built up in the trees. We really enjoyed ourselves there. "
