Kubu Island

Near the south-western corner of Sua Pan lies Kubu Island, the original desert island. But for one tenuous finger of grass, the ancient 20-metre high scrap of rock and its ghostly Baobabs lies surrounded by a sea of salt sand. In cool weather, this bizarre sight can make visitors feel like castaways on an alien planet.. a trully phenomenal sight to see with your own eyes. In Zulu-based languages, 'Kubu' means Hippopotamus, and as unlikely as it may seem looking at the current environment, the site may have been inhabited as recently as 500 to 1500 years ago. On one "shore" lies an ancient crescent-shaped stone enclosure of unknown origin that has yielded numerous pot shards, stone tools and Ostrich eggshell beads.
