Little Tubu shares Hunda Island with its larger sister camp, and also benefits from being in a dry-land location surrounded by seasonally-inundated floodplains. Little Tubu offers an intimate safari experience, combining the luxury of seclusion and privacy with access to some of the best game viewing in the Okavango.
The three luxury guest tents that make up Little Tubu peep out from under the shade of a grove of riverine trees. Sightings of wildlife from the camp inspire excursions to productive woodlands in open 4×4 vehicles, with seasonal water-based activities also an option.

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.
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.
