"Little Tubu review"
Fantastic food with meals individualized for each guest's preferences (and the only camp that managed to create truly vegan meals).
Dinner was served under the stars in a different location each night, and each arrangement had a magical atmosphere." See all these reviews: 14n in Botswana
"Little Tubu review"
As with all of the lodges, the staff were excellent - constantly smiling and nothing was too much trouble.
A general comment applicable to all camps about the food. The presentation was first class and the choice remarkable given the difficult supply logistics. All meals were a delight and the temptation to over-indulge difficult to resist. Our only negative comment is that with one exception, the evening meal meat courses were almost always overcooked, or bordering on being so." See all these reviews: 14n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
"A lovely intimate and relaxed camp"
The staff couldn't be more helpful and as the team is small you really got to know people. The welcome was very warm and friendly and this continued throughout our stay.
The rooms are of a very high standard and very spacious and comfortable." See all these reviews: 9n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
"Truly memorable stay at Little Tubu !"
We were a group of five, and as such, had the camp to ourselves, which made it an extra special experience, one we shall never forget! We absolutely want to thank everyone at this lovely camp, because they all went out of their way to make us feel genuinely welcome and to not want to leave at all ! We honestly can't think of anything that could have been improved. Keep up the extremely good work guys, we would definitely love to return to Little Tubu !
Finally, a special note goes to our guide, Dennis. He did an absolutely fantastic job! Always enthusiast, positive and humorous, and very knowledgeable ! We thoroughly enjoyed our game drives - loved the leopard-mother-with-teenage-son-sighting - and boat/mokoro trips (saw some beautiful birds during the latter!). Finally, we also very much loved the walking safari: we found it exciting and perhaps a bit frightening at first, but learned everything we always wanted to know about termites, and bush men hunting/firemaking techniques!
Top marks for Wilderness Safaris, for having sent Dennis to be our guide, as he is a qualified walking safari guide, and there aren't that many around in Botswana. As we had indicated beforehand that we were interested in doing a walking a safari, they specially transferred him from the camp he usually works at (Kwetsani) to Little Tubu for us. That is what we call splendid customer service ! Thank you !!" See all these reviews: 10n in Botswana; 1n in Zimbabwe
"Great intimate experience"
From the 3 days on 2 we were 4 guests and one day we were just with our hosts and enjoyed a very intimate atmospere! The staff and the guide were outstanding. Their services were excellent in every respect and detail as was the food.
Safari: wonderful landscapes, successful game driving. Highlight was to stay an hour 3 meters from a lepard mother with her cube." See all these reviews: 5n in Botswana; 3n in Zambia
All meals were excellent. Best of the four camps we stayed at.
Elevated walkways give a sense of safety in evening and morning.
The guide was extremely good." See all these reviews: 12n in Botswana; 1n in Zambia
Since we were the only guests - just three tents - we had a chance to talk freely and ask the questions that we had gathered during our stay in Botswana. We are so impressed with government programs and management of their country. In this camp we were introduced to a large variety of Africans from places nearby and from other countries who were articulate about their lives and their choice of professions and the training that was required. Each individual staff member at this camp were outstanding individuals yet managed to work as a highly skilled team.
Our deep appreciation to Botswana, the concessions and above all, the people that have been selected to run the camps." See all these reviews: 12n in Botswana; 1n in Zambia
"Little Tubu review"
As previously stated, the tents at Little Tubu are extremely spacious and comfortable. Both indoor and outdoor showers are delightful. The food and service were amazing. Although a bit separated, the three Little Tubu tents are really not very far from Tubu Tree and its twelve tents. We were not expecting the two camps to be quite so close together, although Little Tubu is definitely run as a separate camp with totally separate dining facilities. The boma dinner the last evening of our trip, held under a magnificent full moon, left us with memories of a lifetime!" See all these reviews: 7n in Botswana; 1n in Zambia
"great place and great safari"
"Little Tubu review"
The location of the camp is beautiful and I am really glad that we stayed in both a land based and water based camp. I'm also glad we stayed at Little Tubu last as I don't think I would have enjoyed Chitabe so much after the magical experience we had at Little Tubu.
Our guide was also excellent. He was patient and even zipped off and found a leopard while we were waiting at the airport for our departure flight.
I cannot praise Little Tubu enough. However, they also did not know I was vegetarian when I arrived. Not only was this on my booking form but I had asked Chitabe to radio this message through to Little Tubu to make sure they knew. It was very disappointing that this had not been done. As a result, I think Little Tubu were unprepared and one day I had the same dish (vegetable curry) for lunch and dinner.
I think the camps do need to up their game a bit with vegetarian options as they are not anywhere near the standard and variety of what is on offer to meat eaters. Having said that, the food was always of a high standard, plentiful and beautifully served so it feels a bit petty to complain!" See all these reviews: 6n in Botswana
