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.
Ate too much though (as the food was so good). Stephen asked for some recipes from the cooks at Little Tubu..Read More

Our first camp, Davisons Camp in Hwange, was wonderful. The young directors were warm and friendly, and our guide, Mike, was brilliant…The camp was charming and the food great…Mike knew every bird, gave us a lecture on the usefulness of elephant dung, etc., and kept us entertained the whole time. He also had a wonderful sense of humor.
Our next camp was Ngoma Safari Lodge. It was clearly the most elegant lodge in the most beautiful setting. And it had the most animals close by and in larger concentrations. They even had wi-fi right there from the dining room overlooking the great view…Our guide at Ngoma, BG, was very good and we managed to see a wonderful assortment of big animals. The room we had was on a par with any at a nice hotel…
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. Read More
