Kasane

Kasane is a town in Botswana, close to Africa's 'Four Corners', where four countries almost meet: Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is at the far north-eastern corner of Botswana where it serves as the administrative center of the Chobe District. The population of Kasane was 7,638 in 2001 census.

The town lies on the south bank of the 200–300 metres (660–980 ft) wide Chobe River which forms the border with the extreme tip of Namibia's Caprivi Strip, though the swamps on the Namibian side prevent any habitation on that side or river crossings to it. About 8 kilometres (5 mi) to the east of Kasane Botswana has 1.6 kilometres (1.0 mi) of frontage to the Zambezi river immediately below its confluence with the Chobe River, and here the Kasane border post serves the Kazungula Ferry crossing to Zambia on the north bank of the Zambezi. Nearby a second border post serves the road into Zimbabwe which runs 80 kilometres (50 mi) along the south bank of the Zambezi to Victoria Falls.

Kasane is at the northern end of the tarred highway from Francistown and Gaborone which is a regional artery between southern and central Africa particularly for trucks too heavy for the Victoria Falls Bridge's periodic weight retrictions.

Kasane is at the north-eastern boundary of Chobe National Park and its road links make it a popular access point for tourists to the park as well as those including it in an itinerary taking in the Okavango Delta and Victoria Falls.

Kasane has a number of campsites and accommodations oriented towards the safari business.
