The Unique Experience of Kasane
Although the town of Kasane holds its own charm, your reason for travelling to it is probably the Chobe National Park, and rightly so. As Botswana’s most biologically diverse national park, Chobe brings together areas as diverse as floodplains, hinterland, marshes, savannahs and grass plains and all the flora and fauna expected to live upon them. Wildlife as diverse as lion, leopard, giraffe, rhino, hippo and various antelope all have a home within the borders of Chobe National Park, to name just a few. A classic safari game drive is the best way to spot all of these beautiful creatures, as well as the park’s vast birdlife. For a different perspective, take advantage of Kasane’s position on the banks of the Chobe River and enjoy a boat cruise. Most accommodations in Kasane offer this service and a sundowner atop the waters while looking out on the game that visit the river banks is the perfect way to see out the day.
As small as Kasane is, there are other, smaller villages and towns in the surrounding area, each with its own charm. Enjoy a day trip to Nata and dig into some of the best chicken and rice in Botswana. The village is also home to the Nata Bird Sanctuary, a community managed conservation project home to 165 species of birdlife and one of the largest populations of flamingo in Africa. Kazungula is the closest travellers can hope to get to the Four Corners of Africa, the meeting point of the borders of Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia. It is home to the Kazungula Ferry, a must for travellers. The Chobe Crocodile Farm is also based in Kazungula and promises an enjoyable and educational addition to any safari itinerary through the area.
