Okavango Delta, Botswana

Wilderness Little Tubu

A classic Okavango Delta experience

Direct access to the wildlife-rich Jao Reserve in Botswana’s Okavango Delta

Situated in the Jao Reserve, Wilderness Little Tubu provides a welcoming home base for exploring the breathtaking Okavango Delta in Botswana. This location offers guests the chance to witness incredible wildlife throughout the year, with a notable concentration of predators such as wild dogs and leopards.

After undergoing an extensive rebuild, Wilderness Little Tubu has been revamped with a minimal environmental impact, seamlessly integrating into the natural landscape. All camp rooms boast uninterrupted views of the Delta’s floodplains. Inside, every detail is meticulously crafted to facilitate a deep connection with nature: the interior incorporates elements of the wilderness, including light oak, live-edge natural wood, textured baskets, rattan, thatch, and accents of black.

The unique setting in the Jao Reserve allows for an extraordinary experience – night safaris, a rare opportunity not available in national parks. During these after-dark safaris, guests have the chance to observe nocturnal creatures in their natural habitat. Not far from the camp, guests can find a concealed hide that can be converted into a  Star Bed, providing an exclusive sleep-out encounter beneath the enchanting African night sky.

The impact of your stay:

  • Wilderness has implemented a robust strategy to minimise waste and plastic usage within their camps. In Botswana, where recycling options are limited, they collaborate with a local provider to recycle a portion of the separated waste from their camps. This initiative has not only reduced environmental impact but also generated employment opportunities for 12 local individuals (and counting). Unrecyclable glass is crushed and repurposed to produce bricks, creating a sustainable product that the local provider can sell within the community.
  • Children in the Wilderness stands as Wilderness’s flagship community engagement and education impact programme. Its primary focus is on promoting sustainable conservation through the development of leadership and education among children in Africa.
  • With camps strategically positioned across the continent, Wilderness has successfully conserved over 2.3 million hectares of land. Their ambitious objective is to expand this conservation effort to 5 million hectares by 2030, reflecting their unwavering dedication to preserving and protecting extensive natural landscapes.
