Kasane is a small town in the extreme north-east of Botswana, it is located near the border with Zambia, Zimbabwe and Namibia (Caprivi Strip). It is a popular base for visitors to the Chobe National Park which is very close as well as for travelers traveling further to the Victoria Falls and the Okavango Delta. There are banks, supermarkets, souvenir shops, campsites and lodges.
Kasane is located on the Chobe River, a beautiful wide river where many boat safaris are held that are absolutely worth it. If you do this in the early morning or late afternoon, you will also see a beautiful sunrise or sunset. During the boat safari you can see elephants, hippos, crocodiles, buffalo and various antelopes.
There are a number of local tour operators and lodges that offer day excursions to the Victoria Falls and safaris in the Chobe National Park, as well as boat trips.
To relax during your tour through Africa, visit Kasane Hotsprings, a natural spa of warm, salt-rich water that is well-known among the locals for its healing properties. A beautiful place for a picnic and to spot special birds is Kasane Rapids just outside the village.Add to my travel plans
