Kubu Island

Kubu Island (Makgadikgadi Salt Pans) Botswana, it’s one of the most beautiful places in Botswana. This rocky outcrop int the middle of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans covered with surrealistic Baobab trees should be visited by everybody travelling 2 Botswana! If you are keen to read more about the Kalahari Desert and the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans just read the book ‘Kalahari Life’s variety in dune and delta’ by Michael Main. Although the book is a little bit ‘old’ (first published back in 1987) it does supply you with very interesting info on the pans and the way the were created millions of years ago! e.g. the water now poring down the Victoria Falls once filled up the Kalahari! The salt pans being the last bit drying up.

Some Kubu Island pictures, first one 1995 my old Landy & with clients camping at the big Baobab, the second one 2007, my last visit to Kubu (so far).
