Kubu Island – The Island of Rocks and Baobabs

July 20, 2013 | in Travel

In the north of the Kalahari Desert, in the midst of sands, is located sort of an island—if you can call this a plot of land surrounded not by water but by sand. Kubu Island’s feature are its rock boulders and baobabs.

In fact, earlier, Kubu was a real island surrounded by water. It is located on the area of the dried Makgadikgadi Lake, which now is one of the largest salt flats in the world. Only in the rainy season, sometimes, this surface is covered by a thin layer of water, showing that Kubu is really an island. The people of nearest village consider Kubu Island a sacred place, and men over sixteen visit it for communication with God.
