Incredible, beautiful Little Tubu
Within minutes of arriving at Little Tubu, I had typed an email to a friend saying "this is the most beautiful place I have ever stayed in my life". The setting of the lodge and the beauty of the "tents" (permanent 20 by 30 foot rooms) was beyond compare. My tent had both indoor and outdoor showers, with the outdoor one having an open view onto the plain, where you might see zebras or impala grazing. Just the walk on the raised walkway out to the rooms was fantastic!
The staff were amazing and friendly but professional and after only 3 days, I felt like I'd made new friends. By pure luck, I was the only guest at the lodge for a full day and it was just awesome. Bee was a great guide and found us a leopard in a tree that we spent 45 minutes with and then followed through the bush. Even the veteran safari goers in my vehicle called it a "9 out of 10". Game drives at Tubu are different that the other lodges I went to because they start as soon as you leave camp (no driving to somewhere) and are very slow and meandering through the jungle. Even with the dense December bush we saw leopard, hyenas, buffalo and a black mamba and had some very intimate elephant moments among other things.
I had the good fortune of having Caroline, who works for Wilderness Safaris, on my game drives with me and she gave me great photography trips. When I told her about the great itinerary I had organized for my whole trip she asked who my travel agent was. When I told her Expert Africa, she said "oh, no wonder it's so good". :)
I really really hope to go back to Little Tubu some day. I loved it.
I should also mention than Bee makes drip coffee in a french press mid morning, which is an amazing treat - thanks Bee!
Our favourite! The choir. The people in the camp - who became our friends. The candle-lit dinner (not asked for or expected). Bee the bagpiping tracker. Just fantastic.Read more about the whole safari
