Kubu Lodge


Kubu Lodge is a small lodge that is on the banks of the Chobe River. The lodge is near the border post of Kazungula just outside the town of Kasane.  The elevated chalets are built in the gardens under huge trees. All have lovely views over the grass down towards the Chobe River. The entrance to the Chobe National Park is a mere 12 km away. Kubu Lodge is the perfect location for a visitor that seeks more distance from the local town Kasane.

You are close and far enough at the same time to enjoy the views of the Chobe river. Kubu means ‘ hippo ‘ in Setswana language. The name gives meaning to the lodge. Many a night you can hear the call of the hippopotamus. You can reach Kubu Lodge best from the Kazungula road.
