Kasane - Botswana

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. 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. The Namibian island of Impalila lies opposite the town on the north bank of the river, and there is a border crossing by passenger ferry to Namibia. Kasane has a number of campsites and lodges (accommodations oriented towards the safari business). These lodges offer day trips into the Chobe National Park, and boat trips on the Chobe River. Kasane has Barclays Bank, First National Bank, Stanbic and Standard Chartered Bank with ATM facility.
