Kasane Holidays

Kasane Travel


Not too long ago Kasane was a remote and not very interesting small village. However, its strategic location - the meeting point of four countries - Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Namibia - has led to rapid expansion in recent years. Six kilometres east of Kasane is tiny Kazungula, which serves as the border post between Botswana and Zimbabwe and the landing for the Kazungula Ferry between Botswana and Zambia.

Situated on the Chobe River in the northeast, Kasane is a bustling little town offering access to the Chobe National Park. As there are no boundary fences between the park and the village, game such as elephant and hippo can frequently be seen wandering down the road and through the Kasane campsites.

Kasane also boasts an old and dignified baobab tree with its own story to tell: in the early twentieth century the hollowed out centre of the tree trunk served as the local prison for many years before the current brick structure behind it was built.

Kasane also offers access to two other tourist sights: Nambia's Caprivi Strip to the west and the Victoria Falls to the east on the Zimbabwe/Zambian border.

Across the Chobe river from Kasane is the flat grassy plains of Sedudu Island, a grazing ground for elephant, hippo and buffalo.
