If you want to experience the best of what Botswana has to offer, Kasane is the place to be. Situated conveniently close to Kasane International Airport, you won’t have to travel far to experience the extraordinary. It is also one of the top tourist destinations in the world if you’re looking for a getaway that is as close to nature as you can get. Furthermore, this town has an incomparable natural beauty you’re unlikely to see anywhere else. So, without further ado, here are our tops picks of some of the best places to pay a visit to if you’re ever in the area.
Chobe National Park
The oldest national park in Botswana, Chobe National Park is home to the most incredible array of wildlife you’re likely to see this side of the hemisphere, and in fact, the world as these magnificent creatures congregate alongside each other on the banks of the Chobe River. With Chobe Marina Lodge, you can experience Chobe National Park in all its splendid glory – book an all-day safari here.
Also situated nearby to Kasane is the longest cascade of water in the world – Victoria Falls. Victoria Falls, also known by the locals as ‘The Smoke That Thunders’, is one of the seven wonders of the world, and it’s no wonder why. You’re certain to be mesmerized by the view before you as these powerful sheets of water fall and crash into the seemingly endless abyss beneath it.

The Boabab Prison Tree
Ever seen a prison site in a tree? Incredibly, this is what the Boabab Prison Tree used to be. If you’re a history buff (and even if you’re not), the Boabab prison is a must-see. And is situated right in Kasane close to the police station. Take a step back in time with our local guides at Chobe Marina Lodge. And see how this hollowed-out tree was used as prison cells long ago.
Caracal Biodiversity Centre
If environmental issues such as the preservation of endangered wildlife are close to your heart, then a trip to the Caracal Biodiversity Center (Centre for the Conservation of African Resources, Animals, Communities and Land use) will be more than worth your while.
