Kazungula Childrens’ Ark Support Group

Kazungula Children’s Ark Support Group was initiated by Kubu Lodge, in conjunction with the Community. It is a fully registered Organisation and works together with S&CD (Social and Community Development – run by local Council). Our aim is to provide a haven for orphans, needy, destitute and vulnerable children between two and a half years to six years of age.

The twenty nine children cared for daily at KCA enjoy a loving atmosphere, a variety of educational activities and a wholesome nutritional program. The project is wholly funded by private donations. KCA has proudly graduated 10 classes to ‘BIG SCHOOL’ since its inception.

On request our guests may visit the Day Care Centre and children to witness first-hand the dedication and devotion of the volunteers and teacher.

Wish List 

If you would like to help us support KCA during your visit, we are always grateful to receive stationary (crayons, chalk, pencils, activity books etc), clothing, toiletries and of course sweets for the children.

Kubu Lodge takes its social responsibilities very seriously and has been intimately involved with the local community in various capacities over the last two decades. 

CARACAL

The Centre for the Conservation of African Resources; Animals, Communities And Land Use is a Botswana registered NGO that recently opened the doors of its ‘Biodiversity Centre’ in Kasane. While the Centre is aimed mainly at education and environmental conservation, they also focus on encouraging local, national and international visitors to share their programmes, projects and information with them. Visitors can experience a very affordable and informative tour of the Centre, with or without a guide, and experience some of Botswana’s more intriguing animals at close range. Spend as long as you want and do as much as you please, but visit the Biodiversity Centre during your visit to Chobe for an experience that you will not get on a game drive or river cruise. CARACAL is a not-for-profit organization, so you will be helping a great cause in the region by supporting the Centre through your visit. The money raised through entry fees goes towards improving the Centre, living conditions of the animals and reputable education, conservation and community programmes.

Birdlife Botswana 

Kubu Lodge is proud to sponsor the Kasane branch of Birdlife Botswana, which runs a hundred percent thanks to local volunteers that organize activities such as: vulture census, waterbird monitoring programs and educational talks.

Enviro 911

Kubu Lodge supports Enviro 911; a community vigilance organization for the environmental protection of Botswana’s Chobe district.
