The charm of Kubu Lodge is epitomised by its wood and thatch chalets. Built on raised, stilted decks, each chalet faces the massive fig and ebony trees that characterise the preserved riparian forest of this stretch of the Chobe River. The rolling lawns are an open invitation to explore the riverfront with binoculars and perhaps find the elusive African Finfoot, or a playful otter family, along the river's edge. Here strategically placed daybeds offer a meditative opportunity to sit and stay awhile - letting the rhythm of the Chobe wash over you. With only eleven units, privacy and space are not compromised, whilst the spreading canopy of Flamboyant trees offers shade and colour to the garden atmosphere. Each chalet is fully en-suite (shower, flush toilet, hot water) with ceiling and standing fans, tea/coffee making facilities, charging facilities, safe, and hair-dryer. With a variety of configurations, Kubu Lodge can accommodate doubles, twins, triples and has one family unit that sleeps four.
Eleven thatched, wooden chalets are elevated on their own private deck. Spaced out beneath the giant flamboyant and wild fig trees, each chalet enjoys a tranquil setting. Strategically placed among the rolling lawns are comfortable day beds where visitors can relax to the rythm and views of the Chobe River.
The decks of Morubisi (Owl) Bar and Leathaba (Sunrise) Restaurant overlook the river and lodge grounds, marrying gourmet cuisine with spectacular views. A swimming pool, reading/games lounge, and nature trail provide relaxation for the more active, whilst a small curio shop offers a chance to find that perfect gift.
The Chobe National Park is famous for its bird and wildlife diversity, and is home to the largest single population of elephant in the world. Visitors explore the park by motorboat and open safari vehicles. Additional activities include day trips to Victoria Falls, visits to a working crocodile farm, and tours of a wildlife rehabilitation centre.
