A Home in the heart of Africa
There is a place on the banks of the Chobe River, in the warm heart of 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.
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.
