Kubu Lodge

Chobe & the North

Rating: Modest    

Kubu Lodge overview

Kubu Lodge is a small, privately owned lodge set on the banks of the Chobe River in Kazungula, just a short drive from Chobe National Park and the border with Zambia.

There are just 11 en-suite chalets, all set on raised platforms and many are under the shade of giant ebony and wild fig trees, with views of the Chobe River.

From Kubu Lodge you'll take game drives and boat cruises in Chobe National Park to view the abundant wildlife, including the famous Chobe elephants, sable antelope, buffalo, lions, antelopes and other plains game. There is a 2 kilometre nature trail in the lodge grounds, which you can explore at your leisure, maybe catching sight of mongoose and bushbuck.

The lodge can arrange an evening sundowner cruise to the confluence of the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers, an experience not to be missed. Victoria Falls is just an hour's drive away and can be visited as a day trip from the lodge.

Kubu is a good value, comfortable lodge which, whilst not luxury, is a welcoming small lodge to base yourself in this Chobe region.


Open: Kubu Lodge is losed in February. 

Location: In Kazungula near Kasane and Chobe National Park, and close to the border river crossing to Zambia. 

Rooms: The 11 chalets all have en-suite bathrooms with shower, flush toilet and hand basin. The ceiling fans help keep the thatched chalets cool during the day. Other room facilities include tea and coffee making facilities, mosquito nets and hairdryers. The chalets available are: 3 double bed chalets including single bed, 2 double bed chalets, 4 triple/twin Chalets (3 twin beds), 1 twin chalet (2 twin beds), 1 quad chalet (2 twin beds and 1 bunk bed for children 4 to 11yrs).  

Activities: Kubu is a great base from which to explore Chobe National Park on game drives and boat safaris. There is a short nature trail within the lodge grounds. Victoria Falls is just an hour's drive away over the border. A sunset river cruise is a lovely way to spend an evening here. Note: No activities are included in the price other than the nature trail. 

Facilities: There is a swimming pool, a gift shop selling souvenirs, and a library. 

Dining: The restaurant serves food that is a fusion of Africa and European styles. It has an elevated position with good views of the river. Meals can be taken inside or out on the wooden terrace. There is also a private boma for quiet, romantic and celebration dinners. 

Children: Children are welcome. 

Health: This is a malarial area. 

Communication: Mobile signals tend to be quite good here.

Mary Hughes

"A lovely place which I really enjoyed. Lovely soft beds and excellent staff and a superb situation overlooking the river. "

Mr. Rumpelstiltskin
"Feels like it's resting on its laurels a bit. Charging for soft drinks etc... a bit unnecessary (just up the price to accommodate that if needed). Guide on first afternoon there was lousy. Drove like my grandmother and she's been dead for a while now! We saw a couple of other places from the river and one from inside and all looked more appealing. Food decidedly average."
Mrs. Ann Gregory
"Just what we needed, a place to relax, enjoy the views and peaceful after a long trip and before our camping adventure got underway."
