With palm-fringed islands, picturesque wetlands, and roaming herds of elephants, zebra, tsessebe, and wildebeest, Botswana’s Okavango Delta is as beguiling a safari destination as they come. Now, game-spotters have one more reason to hop the flight across the Kalahari Desert: Little Tubu, an intimate safari camp set amid the emerald-green floodplains of the delta’s 60,000-hectare Jao Concession. A sister property to luxury outfitter Wilderness Safaris’ adjacent Tubu Tree Camp, Little Tubu, opening on June 1, features just three traditional-style tents, all connected by elevated wooden walkways and replete with creature comforts. Other amenities include a dining terrace, a bar set into a waterberry tree, and a small pool where guests can cool off after an afternoon game drive. During the dry season (May to late September), visitors will also have the option of touring the reserve’s papyrus-fringed wetlands in a traditional mokoro (dugout canoe), perhaps spotting a bathing family of elephants en route.
