Kubu Island Campsite is found on the way to four major parks and game reserves in Botswana and is the only place in Botswana that offers prominent rocky features together with a breath-taking view of the salt pans in the Makgadikgadi.
Kubu Island also boasts rich archaeological and cultural significance and is a Botswana National Monument under the management of the Gaing O Community Trust. Kubu Island got its name from the hippos that used to live here. Kubu means Hippo in Setswana.
The 14 camping sites are scattered between Baobab trees and large granite rocks. The campsite facilities include a long drop toilet (pit latrine toilet) and a fireplace. There are no shower facilities available and guests must make their own arrangements including the supply of water.
