Activities at Little Tubu
Wilderness Little Tubu – Birding
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.
Wilderness Little Tubu – Boating *
Discover by boat and search for water-based wildlife further afield. Good game viewing in the channels further away from camp often yield fabulous sightings of hippos and crocodiles, and maybe even the rare sitatunga.
* Water levels permitting.
Wilderness Little Tubu – Fishing *
Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer seasonally on a catch and release basis.
* Note that fishing is seasonal as it is prohibited by Botswana law in January and February due to breeding purposes.
Wilderness Little Tubu – Game Drives
Morning and afternoon game drives reveal the spectacular wildlife that can be seen in the area. These are offered in open 4x4 vehicles each accommodating a maximum of seven people allowing each guest a "window" seat.
Wilderness Little Tubu – Hides & Star Bed
Our beautiful hide located near camp is an elevated platform from which to enjoy the passing game. At night the hide is transformed into a star bed that offers a wondrous sleep-out experience under a blanket of stars.
Wilderness Little Tubu – Mokoro Excursions *
Experience the Okavango Delta gliding along in a traditional mokoro (dugout canoe) which has been used by generations for transport in the region where there are many more serene channels than roads. This excursion is perfect for spotting tiny reed frogs or larger pods of hippos in the deeper water.
* Water levels permitting.
Wilderness Little Tubu – Night Drives
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.
