Recently spent 2 nights at Kubu lodge in January 2014. The chalets were basic but kept clean and had a clean bathroom. There was a mosquito net around the bed. A restaurant available on site and a bar with a river front view. The pool was small but a welcome place to relax by in the afternoon sun. The lodge...

We spent one night at Kubu Lodge camping: big campsite but not so beautiful... more similar to a parking. Clean bathroom. Nice bar with chobe river view. Braai facilities on each campsite. Close to supermarket and shops. At the morning a lot of nyalas come to the camping

We had an excellent time at Kubu Lodge, which had a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere. The staff were friendly, efficient and very helpful - to the point of coming out to meet us at the airport at 9pm after our plane had been delayed for 9 hours, then saving some much needed food for us on arrival. All the...

We had a lovely 2 night stay at Kubu Lodge. Approx 30 mins drive to Chobe Game Reserve and the Zimbabwe border. We stayed here so we could go to Chobe. The rooms were small and dark and getting a bit old but set within a large garden. There is a small wildlife walk which is nice. Food was average...

Anyone visiting Botswana should visit Kubu Lodge excellent smaller lodge after long flight from the UK. Staff and lodge are excellent and nothing is to much trouble. The food for all meals is excellent in beautiful settings whether or not eating on the patio or restaurant. The lodge is smaller than others in the area but having stayed in Kasane...

Great value for what you get (camping at least). The pitches are quiet and close to the river. Good hot showers, toilets etc - plus plenty of sinks to wash clothes in. There's also a security guard at the campsite permanently. You also get to use the lodge facilities - which include a great lawn running down to the river,...

We stayed two nights at the Kubu lodge campsite in Kasane. When entering the gate you get a warm welcome from the staff at the reception, but you immediately are separated from the more upscale lodge environment (there is for example a separate lodge swimming pool and a very dirty neglected swimming pool for the campsite visitors). You are only...

Maybe we had been very spoiled at our previous lodge but we were a little disappointed with Kubu. The rooms were quite small and dark but the grounds were lovely and we were well fed in the restaurant. But the location enabled us to visit Chobe National Park and we had river and road trips to view the extensive game:...

We stayed at the campsite which is at the terrain of the lodge. Although recommended in the Lonely Planet, we found that the girls at the reception were arrogant, not service minded and unfriendly. The only information we got from them was about thiefs breaking in cars. The restaurant doesn't allow for reservations for campers. You just have to try...

We had an amazing 3 day stay at Kubu Lodge. Ideal proximity to Chobe Game Reserve and the Zambian and Zimbabwe border posts. The management were fantastic - Sharon was especially helpful in arranging our game drives, river cruise (including packed lunches) and our border post transfers. the gardens are beautiful with great bird life. The rooms were very comfortable...
