Once a proper island surrounded by water, Kubu is now surrounded by a sea of salt. Its rocky beaches, stained white by ancient guano, are thick with the fossils of the water creatures who once lived in the vast inland sea which encased the island.

The remains of stone tools, 2000 year old pottery and part of a wall show that people once inhabited the island. The only plants that grow here now are baobab trees. There are other rock islands in the area, but most are the remains of ancient sand dunes, rather than granite like Kubu.

You can’t camp on the island but there are sites nearby and there are 4X4 trails around the salt pans for easy access.
