Being on the doorstep of the world famous Chobe National
Park, Kubu Lodge offers a variety of activities that focus

Professional guides take our guests on an exploration of
both the interior and waterfront of the Chobe National Park

variety and density of wildlife is exceptional but it is the
park’s elephant herds that are the main attraction.

‘Finfoot’ boat. This is the only place on earth where four
countries meet at one point.
