KASANE

Description and history

Kasane is well-situated along the Chobe river although you can't always appreciate the river when passing through the town as most of its frontage is taken up by various lodges and cannot be seen from the road. Located 5km or so from the village of Kazungula, where the borders of Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia meet, and just 60km from the Ngoma border, Kasane has become an important tourist hub in the area. The proximity of the Chobe National Park means that Kasane is the only town where day trips into a major national park or game reserve are feasible - as evidenced by the number of game-viewing vehicles in the town!

Features

The main attraction of Kasane is the Chobe National Park and all of the lodges offer game-drives into the national park although they rarely go much further than Serondela. Boat cruises from the various lodges are special and should not be missed.

Day trips to Victoria Falls can be arranged from most of the lodges in the town and this is a hassle-free way of seeing the falls.

The Kasane rapids, located near Kazungula, are good for bird watching with specials such as Rock Pratincole seen here. Take care though when walking along the river as crocodiles are common and Elephant and even Buffalo are occasionally seen.
