Kasane overview

Kasane is located in the North-eastern corner of Botswana in the Okavango-Chobe region. The city is the administrative centre of Chobe District, and a border town in Botswana where four countries—Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zambia, meet.
This city has the strategic advantage of being located en route to major attractions in four countries: to its West, Kasane provides access to Namibia’s Caprivi Strip, the Victoria Falls is to its east on the Zimbabwe/Zambian Border, while the city is the northern entrance to the magnificent Chobe National Park of Botswana.

Add these to Kasane’s waters that is ideal for fishing safari—the city being laid out along the south bank of the Chobe River, its Hot Spring and the historical Baobao tree among other local attractions, one can see why this border town is a place to visit.

There are 7,638 people in Kasane as of the city’s last census in 2001; though the population has increased since then, probably even tripled with the influx of tourists.
