History of Chobe River School


The school was founded at Kubu lodge on the 14th of July 1998(alteration.) as an outreach into the community by seven Kasane Open Baptist members. They formed a non profit company in 1997 to open the pre school “Noka ya Botshelo” meaning “ river of life” encompassing the importance of the Chobe river as the symbolic journey the children have to make through life.

In 2003 the school had grown substantially and was moved to beautiful new premises situated in the current site amongst Teak trees on the Plateau Hill.


resultsChobe river school is a small school with big ideas.Our highly qualified experienced teachers dedicated themselves to small classes of children of all races and creeds, giving them the individual attention needed to study in a new language.
