Sua Pan is the easternmost large pan, separated from Ntwetwe Pan by a thin strip of grass. One of the most striking destinations in this area is Kubu Island, a rocky outcrop near the southwestern edge of Sua Pan, accessible only by quad bike expeditions of several days from Camp Kalahari, Jack’s Camp and San Camp, or by self-drivers. This crescent-shaped island is about one kilometre long and, apart from its eerie isolation and breathtaking beauty, Kubu is rich in archaeological and historical remains. Stone Age tools and arrowheads can still be found today along the shore of this tiny island and a circular stone wall and stone cairns suggest that Kubu may have been part of the outer reaches of the Great Zimbabwe Empire that was based at Masvingo in modern-day Zimbabwe.
