okavango river      

The Kubu Queen is found on the Okavango River where it maneuvers along for approximately 150km in an area between the Mohembo border and Sepopa. This area is surrounded by untouched waters, lavish islands and dense papyrus swamps. This area is unreachable for most animals and therefore isn’t renowned for the game viewing.

Crocodile, hippo, elephant and the rare sitatunga antelope are the only large animals that occupy the papyrus swamp and small mammals like genets, monkeys, cane rats and bushbuck can be found on the secluded islands. The Kubu Queen focuses on fishing and birding as activities offered on board.

The summer months (Sept, Oct, Nov, and Dec) are peak tiger fishing season and a natural occurrence known as the Barbel Run also befalls at this time. This marvelous time of year allows for the best Tiger Fishing and the Kubu Queen is often booked well in advance for these summer months.
