Explore the charming gateway to the Zambezi River and Chobe National Park

In the northern part of Botswana on the banks of the Chobe River, and at the confluence of 4 countries, sits Kasane, a small border town.

Best time to go to Kasane

Like most of Botswana, Kasane has both a rainy and a dry season. During the rainy season between November and March, there is a wider variety of bird species to be seen along the river, as well as baby animals and predators. Game viewing is easier during the dry season from April to October, when most animals remain close to the main sources of water and the bush is less dense.
