description - kasane

Kasane is situated in the northeastern part of Botswana, and the gateway to Chobe National Park. The town is set on the banks of the Chobe River and near the borders with Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Kasane offers travelers a welcome break after a visit to the Okavango Delta and Savute, especially those that decides to travel by road on a camping safari. This is the perfect stop-over to resupply or to wash off the dust from a safari into the interior of Botswana.

But Kasane is not just a stop-over destination. It offers a wide variety of accommodation and is the base for many to experience the Chobe National Park and River. Activities that should not be missed are a sunset cruise on the Chobe River. The wildlife, esepcially the elephant coming donw to drink in the afternoon is a sight to behold. Bird lovers will appreciate the wide variety of species found in the area.

There is a wildness to this town and it is not uncommon to see warthog, and even elephant wandering down the main street!

At times elephant cross the river completely emersing themselves in the waters of the Chobe, only spotting their trunks sticking out of the water.
