Kubu Queen" Houseboat, a private owner operated houseboat on the Okavango River in the Pan-Handle Section of the Okavango Delta, BOTSWANA.  Moored at the small village of Shakawe in  North Western Botswana. 380 km by road from Botswana’s tourism hub, the town of Maun.
The Kubu Queen 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 Okavango. Aboard the Kubu Queen Houseboat you will experience the very best of what this incredible UNESCO World Heritage site has to offer.
The Kubu Queen is a 12 x 4 metre , double decker riverboat ideally suited to the waterways of the Okavango Delta's upper reaches. She is powered by twin 60 HP four stroke motors and gets her energy from the sun via solar power.

Accommodation on the boat  includes 2 x double bedded cabins downstairs and 2 x single sleepers in an outside open air bedroom upstairs. The two upstairs couches can also be converted into sleepers to accommodate bigger groups. The boat is serviced by a separate toilet and individual shower and comfortably accommodates six to eight guests.

In order to accommodate larger groups of up to twelve guests we incorporate a small mobile camp. This camp is carried onboard and set up on the various islands where the houseboat moors each night. The camp is made up of spacious dome tents and a dining tent. All other facilities are shared with the houseboat and guests get to enjoy the best of both a houseboat experience and an island camping safari.
