Little Tubu

Jao Concession, western Okavango Delta

Little Tubu is an intimate tented camp with just three tents.  All tents have ensuite bathrooms with private decks and outdoor showers overlooking the floodplains.  Little Tubu benefits from its location on Hunda Island with excellent concentrations of plains game in winter.  Leopards are also found in good numbers.

The island is the biggest expanse of dry land in this area and includes a mix of diverse habitats ensuring a varied and spectacular game viewing experience.  Connected to Tubu Tree Camp by a broadwalk, Little Tubu provides a deeply personalised safari experience to guests. The camp has an elevated main building shaded by the tree canopy which is comprised of the dining area, bar and swimming pool deck; the elevation provides an amazing vantage point over the seasonal riverbed.

Little Tubu has use of the two hides in the Jao Concession.  One of these hides is located about twenty minutes from Little Tubu can be transformed into a “star bed” for sleep-outs for up to four people at a time.

Activities are the same as at Tubu Tree Camp with Hundu Island providing excellent access the diverse habitats of the Okavango Delta. Game drives are conducted both by day and night and motorboats and mokoros explore the delta’s waterways during the winter months. Fishing excursions are offered during the fishing season.

Little Tubu conducts game drives with 4 x 4 Land Rovers.  Each Land Rover seats a maximum of seven guests allowing each guest a seat with an uninterrupted view out of the vehicle.  In addition to morning and afternoon game drives, night drives are offered allowing guests to see nocturnal animals such as aardwolf, porcupine, serval and large spotted genet.

The Tubu area of the concession provides bird enthusiasts with large concentrations of wattled crane, slaty egret, rosy-throated longclaw and African skimmer.  Hunda Island provides a contrasting environment with frequent sightings of crimson-breasted shrike and Meyer’s parrot.

Diverse Habitat

Situated in the very heart of the wetlands of the Okavango Delta, the Jao Concession embodies all the magic and mystique of Botswana with vegetation that varies from permanent swamps to dry land. In the east, the Jao Flats boast water channels that cut their way through the papyrus and reed beds, providing the perfect environment for wildlife. Beautiful lush palm islands dot the water.
