We travelled from Namibia and crossed the border at Sesheke - the situation on the Zambian side has improved drastically, new buildings, organised procedures, friendly and efficient staff. There is an ATM, so no need to buy Kwacha from the vendors. The road from Sesheke to Kazangula (120 km) is a nightmare potholes and more potholes. Takes about 3 hours... More

Travelling to zambia as a woman with my 18 year old daughter from Australia was quite scary. Taking the risk of staying out of town and not really knowing if we would be safe very risky! But so very very glad we did. Kubu cabins was amazing - could not recommend more highly if you love nature, peace and quiet.... More

We spent 7 nights at Kubu Cabins. All I can say is that it is the most peaceful place on earth. Loved every moment of it. We saw ellies drinking on the opposite bank everyday, and heard lions roaring and hyenas laughing at night. I was in my element. Only downside was that on new years eve, a group from... More

During a four week trip to Zimbabwe and Zambia, we spent two days in Livingstone. Like other reviewers, we wanted to be out of town but to be able easily to reach the Vic Falls and the exciting activities on offer. We had already stayed in a number of campsites, both in National Parks and privately run - none came... More

We stayed for 2 nights in August this year. We wanted something outside Livingstone, away from the noise and mass tourism of town. They are located some 23 km from Livingstone on the road West to Kazangula and Katima Mulilo, and then another 3 km bush driving down from the tarmac road to the Zambezi shore. For us, self driving,... More

I spent two days here and simply loved it. The cabins are such value for money and we loved our stay there. The gardens are superb and so much care has been taken to create a tranquil haven in a harsh african environmnent. the Zambesi river is just a few meters away from the boma area and we enjoyed a...

We stayed in an adorable little wooden cabin with a stunning outside shower right on the banks of the Zambezi river. Absolutely exquisite. Kubu Cabins really is a piece of paradise, its in a totally unspoilt section right next to the Zambezi river. The birdlife is incredible, we saw 5 different species of beeaters, the African Finfoot, woodland owls and... More

We stayed on the campsite on the way to Livingstone from Katima. The site is off the main road down a track that must be about 3km, ensuring that there is no noise from the road. Some of the trees at the ampsite entrance were a bit low for our vehicle (3.4m high) - but a similar sized vehicle can... More

We rented a double cabin with the shared self catering facilities in June. By far the best feature of this great little place is the bathrooms which are attached to the cabins but open air. Showering under the stars in piping hot water was quite wonderful. Other great features are the proximity to the river; sundowners in camping chairs on... More

On the morning of 15th April 2012 we took off for Zambia and the Victoria Falls. Now things changed dramatically. Leaving Namibia was a breeze compared to entering Zambia. As you cross the border into Zambia you are directed to a shabby building where the only person wearing a uniform is the immigration officer. There is shambles inside. You are... More
