Best time to visit Kasane

Like much of Africa, Botswana is, generally speaking, warm throughout the year; even its coolest period, from June to September, varies little from the rest of the year, reaching heights of around 24˚C at times. Said coolest period, notably, is also the height of the tourist season, since, besides being the least hot, it is also the period with the lowest volume of rain, and the highest concentration of wild animals out in the region’s sprawling natural parks. Go during this time, and your experience will be a little cooler and a little drier, and involve a few more sightings of wild wonders; but go more or less any other time, and any weather differences will be, for the most part, negligible – and, what’s more, you’ll be more likely to find a good accommodation deal.

Health & Safety

The Centres for Disease Control recommends that travellers to Botswana ensure that their routine vaccinations are up to date, and that they get immunisations for Hepatitis A and typhoid, both of which are spread through contaminated food and water.

Kasane is located in an area of Botswana troubled by malaria, particularly during the rainy season. It is recommended that you obtain antimalarial medication and mosquito repellent for your trip.

In terms of serious crime, Botswana is widely considered one of the safest countries in Africa. The thin population density of Kasane and the surrounding region means that thieves will have little opportunity to commit any petty crimes. Keep an eye on your valuables, and you’re unlikely to face anything in the way of personal security risks during your time in Botswana.

Where to stay?

Whether you fancy a spot in town, down by the riverside, or out amidst the rambling wilds, Kasane boasts an extensive array of enchanting, professionally maintained accommodation establishments for the getaway-seeking traveller to choose from. Spend your stay immersed in the top-end, baobab-shaded luxury of Mowana or amidst the self-maintained, rustic pleasures of one of the region’s campsites; whatever you may opt for, there’s little doubt that your Kasane experience will be unforgettable.

Getting Around

Due to Kasane’s small size and thin population, public transportation options are both limited and not usually particularly necessary. Minibuses offer cheap transport between Kasane and other towns; but for the most part, places of interest in and around the town can be reached quite easily on foot. Travellers who wish to do so, however, may opt to join a game drive through one of the region’s stretches of natural beauty, or take a cruise down the Chobe River, alongside which the town is built.
