Lekhubu Island is a rock outcrop in Botswana. It is an inland island, rising above the surrounding plain of the largest salt pan in Botswana - Sua Pan. In the past, the island was part of the prehistoric Makgadikgadi Lake. This crescent shaped piece of land is about one kilometer long, and its slopes are littered with fossil beaches of rounded pebbles, an indication of the prehistoric lake's former water levels. Many rocks on the island are covered with fossilised guano, from the birds that hug once perched here million of years ago.
The island is also called Kubu. Is attractive primarily for its wild beauty with a rough stone relief and large majestic baobabs. These frantically shaped trees perched on the island are surrounded by the white salt surface, making a unique worldly atmosphere.
Kubu Island is rich in archaeological and historical remains that chronicle both early human inhabitation and recent history. The original inhabitants of the area consider the whole island a sacred place, and it is a national monument. There is also camping possible on the island.
