The town where elephant's roam free, Kasane Botswana

The town where elephant's roam free, kasane Botswana

In the far north west corner of Botswana you will find the small town of Kasane, the town of Kasane is basically Botswana's flagship tourist town, surrounded by the mighty Chobe River, the Chobe national park, and the forestry reserves the traveler does not have to travel far in order to find wildlife, in fact its not uncommon to find elephant's walking in and around the town.

Although a very small town, accommodation is plentiful, from backpackers to five star lodges, how ever in peak season it can sometimes become a little difficult to find accommodation in some of the budget groups, hence it always pays of to book accommodation well in advance if one is able to do so.

There are basically three different ways or option's to explore the Chobe national park, one can either self drive or if you don't have a four wheel drive vehicle, then one can simply take a game drive with one of the many safari company's located in Kasane. The third way for traveler's to kasane to explore the Chobe, is to take a boat cruise  into the Chobe national park, in fact this should be your number one activity on your Chobe "to do list" there is something very magical about sitting on a small boat watching elephant's play on the shore as the sinking sun slowly turns everything into black silhouette's

Although the world famous Victoria falls is not located in kasane, it is only 80 kilometers down the road, and again there are many safari company's that offer either day trips to see the falls or one way transfers . Just remember that when visiting the Victoria falls from botswana you will have to cross either the Zimbabwe border or the Zambia border, so check before hand if you will need any visas and what if any fees, you will need to pay, also there is an entrance fee, to enter the Victoria falls national park.

Moremi Game Reserve Botswana

Moremi Game Reserve  About:  The Moremi Game Reserve is a area of just under 5000 sq km situated about 90km north east of the frontier town of Maun in northern Botswana. The Moremi reserve is home to all the big five as well as a vast variety of other species including the beautiful African Wild Dog and the sometimes elusive Bat Eared Fox.


Getting There: One of the more common ways to explore the Moremi is to self drive, one can even Hire a 4x4 in Maun and then drive with confidence into the Moremi, a 4x4 is essential when exploring the Okavango delta and the Moremi game reserve is no exception, one of the worst parts is the section of road that starts at the little village of Serobe and ends at the wildlife veterinary gate just before the road forks at the Khwai/Moremi junction, this section is very bumpy as well as being incredibly sandy. However the roads are always changing and in the rainy season, some roads disappear altogether.
If self driving is not your cup of tea, there are…
