The Tree House is 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.
Wildlife seen around the property includes elephant, lion, Burchell’s zebra, red lechwe, southern giraffe, tsessebe, and blue wildebeest on the floodplains. Kudu, impala, bushbuck and leopard are also seen in the forested areas. The variety of birdlife is impressive, with dry-land species seen on the larger islands and a multitude of wetland birds seen on the floodplains and waterways.
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 (a 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.
