Kubu Lodge


Kubu Lodge is a small lodge on the banks of the Chobe River. It is near the border post of Kazungula just outside the town of Kasane.  Here guests can stay in elevated chalets, surrounded by gardens, under huge trees. All Kubu Lodge chalets have lovely views of the grassy Chobe River banks.

The lodge is small and run by the owners. You will find it just off the Kazungula road. The entrance to the Chobe National Park is just 12 km away. The lodge is 2km upstream from the confluence with the Zambezi River. Here, four countries meet – Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia!

Kubu Lodge is the perfect location for a visitor that seeks more distance from the local town’s hustle and bustle.

The property is 30 hectares of forest reserve and serves as a Chobe bushbuck sanctuary. You can also see mongoose, warthog and vervet monkeys going about their business.

Kubu means “hippo” in the Setswana language. While staying here you can often hear the call of the hippopotamus. As there’s no TV’s, radio’s and distractions, you can truly relax and enjoy the Chobe River, birdlife and animals.
