Kasane 4WD Camper Rental, Botswana
Compare Kasane Campervan Hire Rates & Book Online
Kasane lies in a riparian woodland at the confluence of Chobe and Zambezi Rivers which form the natural borders of four African countries – Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. A trip to Africa by 4WD camper rental in Kasane from Kea Campervan Rentals, Britz Motorhome Hire or Caprivi Car Rental is a journey into legendary safari wilderness and the magnificent landscapes carved by the Victoria Falls.
Safari in the Okavango by 4WD Camper
While not as developed as Maun, Kasane has its fair share of lodges, safari tour operators, supermarkets and petrol stations to make your safari adventure by 4WD camper hire in Kasane comfortable and enjoyable. Kasane lies at the northeastern fringes of Chobe National Park, so a 4WD campervan rental in Kasane gears you up for a game drive to Botswana's second largest national park filled with herds of elephants and Cape buffalo and a multitude of other mammals along with their natural predators.
From here, drive your 4x4 camper rental in Kasane to the Okavango Delta a mere 100 miles south and tick Africa's 'Big Five' off your list in Moremi Game Reserve on the eastern side of the Delta. The Okavango Delta itself is immense, covering an area of 16,000 square kilometers and three times its normal size after torrential rains. When the waters are high, explore the Chief's Island and outlying but smaller islands in a dugout canoe. You may opt to see the daily drama of predator and prey unfold from a balloon ride.
On the way back to Kasane, spend a day or two at the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, otherwise featureless if not for the gigantic baobab trees and tens of thousands of pink flamingos taking flight.
4x4 Self-drive to Victoria Falls
Take to the Chobe River for a sunset cruise before you retire to your Kasane 4WD campervan hire and head off the next day to other destinations across the border. The thundering Victoria Falls is a mere 45 miles away, so a day trip, whether guided or not, across the river border and into the falls is altogether doable even if you are pushed for time. If the volume of the falls is at its height, running the rapids is a popular outdoor diversion, otherwise there is always abseiling, canoeing, kayaking, bungee jumping, fishing and boating in the fall's vicinity.
Across the Border by 4WD Camper
Kazungula, seven and a half miles east of Kasane, is exactly where the four African countries meet. If you want a jaunt to Zambia, take a ferry across the river and Livingstone, Zambia's gateway to Victoria Falls, is less than 50 miles east. Or you can bring your 4WD campervan hire in Kasane with you on a scenic ride along the well-tarred Caprivi Strip, Namibia's panhandle where the Okavango River crosses into Botswana before sinking in the sands of Kalahari.
There are a couple of national parks along the strip teeming with game when the waters are scarce, but be careful around venomous reptiles like the black mamba and spitting cobra which can be found even in well-trodden tourist trails.
When crossing borders with your 4x4 campervan rental in Kasane, keep in mind that you need to present driving licenses and permits on top of the usual travel papers.
