Kubu Island

Today we drove to Kubu Island. It was a 7-8 hour drive from Maun. We had to drive on a bit of the Makgadikgadi Pans to get to Kubu Island. On the Top Gear African special they had to drive across the Makgadikgadi Pans. When they stopped at an island for the night that island was Kubu Island. Usually the pans are not as soft as when they drove across. When we were on Kubu Island, we found lots of arrow chippings from the natives who lived there more than 500 years ago. Kubu Island has a lot of Baobab trees on it. I climbed 8 meters (24 feet) up a Baobab tree near our campsite.
