Lack of any decent restaurant in Kasane but we did not find that a problem. Also no KFC, Spur, Wimpy, Nando`s or any of those franchises. Fuel readily available, a pharmacy, also red meat, any and all groceries and liquor - no problem. No decent clothes shop, so take all the clothes you need. From SA to Botswana do not bring any red meat raw and/or fruit as it will be taken and confiscated at the border and several road check points. No car dealerships. A very small town by all standards and congested.
Suburb of Gaborone
Botswana is overrated as a whole. There's not much a tourist can do in Botswana except going out for a drink. The least I talk about the very rude and insensitive immigration officers and the police, the better. They are not helping Botswana's image as a tourist destination.
Town of Makgadikgadi Pans
Gweta Lodge location
We took a self drive from RSA, to Harare, to Zambia-Lusaka-Livingstone, Botswana.Gweta is located in a strategic place (at the salt pans and some kilos away from the Okavango Delta.
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.
Laid back city. The people and Botswana Immigration Officials are not explicitly friendly to tourists. The road signs are few and confusing. There is a need for tourist agencies and literature even at the border. Botswana and Gaborone can do a lot more to attract tourists. The infrustructure is okay, but can still improve e.g. roads need completion, pavements are needed.
Kasane for the camper
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.
