Overview



On the doorstep of the world famous Chobe National Park, and only an hour away from the mighty Victoria Falls sits Kubu Lodge, an ideal place from which to explore this fascinating region.Accommodations are in 11 charming chalets all thatched and raised on stilts to give panoramic views of the Chobe River. Rustic exteriors belie the comfort within; full ensuite facilities, ceiling fans, mosquito nets, tea and coffee- making facilities and comfortable beds.

Our restaurant is renowned for its excellent cuisine that is a fusion of European and African styles. Other facilities include a bar, a gift shop, a short nature walk, a private secluded swimming pool, and a health/beauty salon.

Kubu Lodge has eleven thatched wooden chalets that are built on raised platforms to enhance the panoramic views of the Chobe River. Their charming, yet rustic appearance belies the comfort within. Spread out under large shady trees with an expansive lawn provides a cool and verdant ambience.

At Kubu Lodge we ensure our guests are spoilt with all the comforts of home and the facilities provided go a long way to achieving this goal.

Professional guides take our guests on an exploration of both the interior and waterfront of the Chobe National Park in specially adapted 4x4 vehicles and motorboats. The variety and density of wildlife is exceptional but it is the park's elephant herds that are the main attraction.

From the lodge we offer a quiet sunset cruise to the confluence of the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers aboard our 'Finfoot' boat. This is the only place on earth where four countries meet at one point.

Take a stroll along the lodge nature trail that meanders for 2km through a mix of riverine and miombo woodland. Catch a glimpse of one of the resident Chobe Bushbuck or follow a troop of mongoose as they forage.
