A Home in the Heart of Africa


Nestled in the heart of Botswana, Kasane is a charming town that serves as the gateway to Chobe National Park, a wildlife haven renowned for its diverse ecosystems. Visitors to Kasane can immerse themselves in a myriad of activities that celebrate the region's natural beauty. A highlight is embarking on a river safari along the Chobe River, offering a unique perspective on the abundant wildlife that congregates along its banks. Elephant enthusiasts will be delighted by the opportunity to witness large herds of these majestic creatures, while boat cruises provide an ideal setting for birdwatching, with prolific birdlife gracing the skies. Game drives within Chobe National Park promise encounters with an array of animals, including lions, buffalos, and hippos. For a cultural experience, a visit to a local village provides insight into the traditional lifestyle of the indigenous communities. Kasane, with its rich tapestry of nature and culture, promises an unforgettable adventure for all who explore its offerings.

Kubu Lodge sits in the ‘Four Countries’ region of Botswana with Zambia, Namibia, and Zimbabwe as neighbours. With easy access via an excellent road network and three international airports close by (Kasane – 15 min, Victoria Falls – 1h15min, Livingstone 1h15min), it is a fitting place from which to start a journey that explores these regions or to finish off a safari across one or all of these countries. For the self-drive (4×4) or mobile safari tourist, Kubu Lodge is the perfect gateway to a classic expedition across Chobe National Park to the enigmatic Savute and onwards to Moremi Game Reserve and the Okavango Delta. For the fly-in traveler, seat-in-plane charters depart from Kasane airport several times a day, easily linking Chobe to the wild destinations of the Savute, Linyanti, and Okavango.  

Day trips to Victoria Falls can be arranged. Only an hour’s drive away, inclusive of border crossings, it seems silly to come all this way and not take advantage of seeing one of our planet’s Seven Natural Wonders.

A working crocodile farm sits right next door to Kubu Lodge. A tour of this generational business will give you a whole new perspective on the last of the living dinosaurs.

CARACAL is a not-for-profit organisation involved in wildlife and community projects. Their wildlife rehabilitation and rescue centre is worth a visit if only to meet ‘Badgy’ the honeybadger and ‘Fungus’ the bushbaby! You can also address that snake phobia by meeting (and handling!) some of Africa’s meanest (and most timid) reptiles.

Want to get a bird’s eye view of Chobe’s teeming floodplains? Scenic flights can be arranged out of Kasane airport.

Want to get a taste of Kasane life? A ‘shopping trip’ into the town centre is one way to meet traders and get a feeling for the local community.

A sundowner cruise aboard the ‘Finfoot’ is an ideal way to end any day. Apart from the myriad birds and occasional wildlife along the shore, the confluence of the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers is less than two kilometres downstream – the only place in the world where four countries meet in one place and the site of Africa’s newest bridge.
