Independent, impartial reviews of Kasane from SafariNow users
We are a family of 4, 2 adults with 2 teenage daughters from Sydney, Australia.
Kasane is a great place to visit with lots to do and see. We went on two sunset cruises and loved both. There were loads of animals, saw elephants crossing the river to the island – right there, yep! We were in the middle of it all – amazing – hippos, buffalo and the rest.
We took a morning safari and saw a lot of wildlife again. We had our own vehicle, so we did heaps of driving in Chobe - WOW!!! Animals everywhere! Good variety of accommodation and restaurants (at the lodges), good supermarkets. I must add, what really made our stay at Kasane special, were the very friendly and welcoming local people.

Chobe is a dream destination in Botswana for animal lovers. I absolutely loved my visit there, there is so much to see, so much to do. Will definitely be planning another trip there.

Kasane has several camping resorts, both luxury tent and bring-your-own-tent types. A boat trip on the Chobe RIver is a must - the elephants and birds are amazing. The best Oriental restaurant in northern Botswana is on the main road just about opposite the Spar.

kasane town is a conveniently located close to the chobe national park entrance and the border crossing to zambia, zimbabwe and namibia's caprivi strip.
You can stock up on all your supplies there, but its not necessary to linger. fresh fruit and vegetables are limited and pricey, but there is a hardware store, spar, bottle store, atms some restaurants and petrol station.
Try to fill up with petrol in all convenient places along your journey; the petrol station in kasane was empty when we needed to fill up apon leaving.

Kasane is a little town and only has a Spar supermarket to buy things for the day, as food and drink at the lodges are very expensive.
There is a good restaurant with Italian food. Taxis to and from the lodges are cheap, but you must pay in US dollars.
Kasane lies close to Chobe National Park and is a good point from which to visit the park with its many animals. It is not so far, 70 km, from Victoria Falls, but it takes time to cross the borders and you pay in US dollars.

Chobe Game Park makes Kasane. The river Chobe is a great asset. Kasane is a quiet town.

Kasane is a well-equipped little town, set on the gorgeous Chobe River backing onto the Chobe National Park.
Tour operators all offer pretty much the same services, but the value for money is good and the wildlife abundant.
For full value at Kasane, I would advise taking up a 4x4 and getting hold of your own boat.

Kasane is all about nature. I recommend you rather pay a little more when booking into a lodge. We stayed at Mowana Lodge and found the rates very reasonable and the surrounding area exquisite. There is not much to do in Kasane and very few places to eat outside of the lodges that are worthwhile.
