Kasane is a small bustling town in the north of Botswana. It overlooks the Chobe river, and is quite close to its mergence with the Zambezi River. Kasane provides easy access to three of Botswana's Namibian, Zambian and Zimbabwean borders. It has an international airport just 4 km outside of town, making it the perfect place to begin a safari.
Visitors to Kasane are often treated to seeing wildlife such as elephant and hippopotami literally wandering down the road and through the Kasane campsites. This is due to the fact that there are no boundary fences between the park and the actual village.
Kasane is a very popular fishing safari destination with a wide variety of fish species to be found including Tigerfish and Bream. Sedudu Island on the Chobe River is a favoured spot for birdwatching as well as a grazing ground for elephant, hippo and buffalo.
A short drive out of Kasane takes you to a bend in the Chobe River near the Kasane Rapids. There are a number of picnic sites in the area, with an abundance of birdlife close to the rapids. Look out for unusual species such as the African Finfoot and the Halfcollared Kingfisher.
Sundowner river cruises are incredibly beautiful for game viewing and wonderful photographic opportunities, particularly of the herds of elephant and buffalo.
Visit the old hollow baobab tree whose local claim to fame is that in the early 20th century the hollowed out centre of the tree trunk served as the local prison.
Kasane is also home to the vibrant and inviting Kasane Hot Springs, a lovely natural mineral spa. The hot springs are a well known attraction, with people able to enjoy fishing and birdwatching while surrounded by the most amazing scenery.
