A Home in the Heart of Africa

A Home in the Heart of Africa...

....is a place on the banks of the Chobe River, in Northern Botswana, where tranquillity and beauty mix with raw wilderness. Here the immaculate Chobe bushbuck shares its sanctuary with warthog, mongoose, and abundant birdlife, whilst the hippo and crocodile hold domain over the riverine paradise. This place is Kubu Lodge - a small privately owned and managed safari lodge. No radios, no television, no five-star prices. Just 'five-star' hospitality, amidst the splendour of a wild river with its spreading trees and birdsong for company.


Whether you want the independence of ‘Bed & Breakfast’, or the luxury of ‘Fully Inclusive’ with game drives and boat cruises included, Kubu Lodge has the options to suit every need.

Established in 1986, Kubu Lodge is proud to be the longest owner-managed establishment in the Chobe. This is not only a testament to the deep passion and dedication the owners have for the area, but also their decades long experience of knowing what matters to their guests, especially when it comes to flexibility.

Wonderful gem on the edge of the Chobe River
We stayed at Kubu Lodge for 3 nights as part of a wider tour of Botswana & Zimbabwe. We couldn't fault it - the chalets were lovely, set amongst the lovely garden on the edge of the river. Along with the resident warthogs and bushbuck! Without exception the staff were fantastic - friendly, attentive and prepared to go the extra mile! The food was amazing and we felt very lucky to have a private meal in the Boma on our last night - a very special touch! None of us wanted to leave!
Lovely Lodge
Lovely chalets on the banks of the river. Nice clean and very comfortable accommodation. The restaurant offers great food and the gardens are excellent. A very well organised lodge. Very commendable and enjoyable.
Great location on the banks of the Chobe River
This small and perfectly formed lodge was ideal for our stay in Botswana and base for the safari drives in Chobe. The rooms are spotlessly clean, built in a way that it remains cool in the rooms even though it is nearly 40° C outside. The restaurant has outdoor seating which overlooks the Chobe river. The food was excellent, even the salads on offer for lunch and especially the 3 course dinners. The staff are all friendly, greeting you each time you pass and welcoming you everyone you return from a trip outside. On the last night of our stay, the team surprised us with a private dinner for our wedding anniversary which made it truest special. Thanks to the manager Sharon and team! Pineape who took us on the boat cruise was a also gem.
