Little Tubu, Okavango Delta
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.
- An intimate and exclusive camp perfect for families and small groups
- Leopard viewing on the island is particularly good
- Hunda Island is a wildlife sanctuary noted for its diversity and populations of predators
Little Tubu’s location on Hunda Island and easy access to both water and dry-land habitats, ensures varied and spectacular game viewing.
Morning and afternoon game drives reveal the spectacular wildlife that can be seen in the area. These are offered in open 4×4 Land Rovers each accommodating a maximum of seven people allowing each guest a ‘window’ seat.
Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during normal daytime drives. Porcupine, aardwolf, serval, large spotted genet and lesser bushbaby are just some of these.
There is no better way of enjoying the crystal-clear waters of the Delta and its wildlife than by traditional mokoro (dugout canoe), an activity that showcases the smaller fascinating critters and striking waterbirds of the region.
Water-level dependent, excursions in our boat allow for good game viewing in the channels further away from camp often yielding fabulous sightings of hippo and crocodile and maybe even the elusive sitatunga.
Hides and Star Bed
There are two hides in the area – one of which is located about 20 minutes from camp. This hide can be transformed into a Star Bed for sleep-outs for a maximum of four people at a time. The hide is equipped with a long-drop loo.
Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer seasonally on a catch-and-release basis.
The mix of habitat ensures a variety of birdlife to be seen, from flocks of endangered wattled crane and glimpses of the rare lesser jacana on the eastern side to Meyer’s parrots and Dickinson’s kestrel in the west.
