Nestled on the banks of the Chobe River, Kubu Lodge is a small, privately owned retreat to a wildlife paradise in Northern Botswana.
An intimate and cozy camp, there are eleven thatched wooden chalets to choose from, each built on a raised wooden platform. These charming chalets are scattered over the wide, green lawns and rest under a shady, verdant canopy of trees. Each chalet comes with an en-suite bathroom with a shower, sink, hot and cold running water, and flush toilet. Other amenities include mosquito nets, tea and coffee facilities, a safe, power plugs, and a hairdryer. Moreover, each chalet has its own private deck, beneath giant ebony and wild figs trees with panoramic views down to the river’s edge making it the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee or an afternoon rest.
The lodge is located in the magnificent Chobe National Park with breathtaking Seventh World Wonder – Victoria Falls is only an hour away. The area is known for its large herds of elephants with an estimated 120,000 elephants living in the park as well as hippo and buffalo. A bird watcher’s paradise, it is ideal for African skimmers, white-crowned lapwing, all three pratincoles, black coucal, and large flocks of African open bills. In the hot dry corridors of Chobe National Park, the elusive oribi, oryx, eland, ostrich, and steenbok are at home. Other species found here include giraffe, roan, and sable. Visitors to Chobe are also likely to see two rare antelope, the puku, and the Chobe bushbuck.
