Welcome to the KUBU QUEEN HOUSEBOAT, an "Old Africa Safari " style houseboat, based on the magnificent Okavango River in the Pan-Handle Section of the Okavango Delta, Botswana. The Kubu Queen is moored at her private base camp in the small village of Shakawe in North Western Botswana some 380 km by road from Botswana’s tourism hub, the town of Maun. She has a rich heritage in the Okavango. Built on the water over 30 years ago she is a legendary houseboat and known throughout the Okavango Delta. Specialist river guide, Greg Thompson and his crew operate exclusive river safaris along the course of the Panhandle section of the main Okavango River. Aboard the Kubu Queen Houseboat you will experience the very best of what this incredible UNESCO World Heritage site has to offer. Activities include:Boating, Fishing , Walking, Birding, Photography & river cruises.
The Kubu Queen Houseboat is a 12m x 4m riverboat ideally suited to cruising the upper reaches of the Okavango. She is powered by twin 60HP 4 stroke motors and get's her energy from the sun. Accommodation includes 2 x double bedded cabins downstairs and 2 x single beds upstairs. The boat is serviced by a separate toilet and individual shower and comfortably accommodates six (6) guests. Larger groups (up to 12pax) are accommodated in "Old Africa Safari "style tents on islands.
To accommodate the larger groups of up to twelve(12) guests we incorporate a mobile camp. This camp is set up on the various islands where the houseboat moors each night. The camp is made up of spacious en-suite dome tents with beds and guest's get to enjoy alfresco dining under the African stars.
"It has to be said……the two of you run an unbelievably successful operation. From booking the trip right to the end, everything ran seamlessly. Greg, your enthusiasm and extraordinary effort shines through. All of us were blown away with the trip as our best expectation was exceeded.
Thank you from all of us!"
