Kubu Island Campsite

In the southwestern area of the Sua salt plains, you can find Kubu Island. Camping on Kubu Island means staying the night in a beautiful, remote place under the stars. The campsite is very basic and offers a sense of freedom with an amazing view of the salt plains. The camping sites are between the many Baobab trees and the large granite rocks. Kubu Island owes its name to the hippos that used to live here. Kubu means Hippo in Setswana.

Kubu Island Campsite provides a more adventurous accommodation and is part of various self drive 4×4 trips through Botswana.

Accommodation facilities

  • 14 spacious camping pitches

We would recommend Selfdrive4x4.com to our friends

We booked a last minute 17 day self drive trip through Namibia with this company and everything was just perfect. Contact with the company was very pleasant and they kept us posted with updates about the progress of our trip. Gps, maps, book and 12V equipment was sent to our home as soon as our trip was confirmed.

Price wise it was a great deal and everything in Namibia (car and layovers) were to our satisfaction. We would definitely book again with this company and we would recommend it to our friends.
