What people are saying about Kasane

We have the most fantastic day with Maano Adventures. We picked up promptly from our lodge at 7am before being driven to the Botswana border. Our Zambian driver Kendrick drove very safely and carefully, and was very interesting to chat to. He walked us through the immigration process and helped us on the boat over the lake where our guide for Chobe was waiting. We had an excellent day with Cape Fig Safaris, the Botswana company operating the tour with Maano. He was highly interesting, patient and really wanted to make our day excellent. Lunch was great (soft drinks included) at a beautiful lodge with a stunning views. The boat trip was excellent too, with another guide. Everything went really smoothly, we felt 100% safe and the communication before, during and after the trip was fab. Thanks so much!

It was a lovely daytrip. We flew through immigrations on both the Zambian and Botswana side. I was in doubt about whether there would be charges at the boarders which there were not. The game drive was so nice and the driver was the nicest man. He definetly had our best interest at heart and did his best to find as many animals as possible. We saw elefants everywhere and a lot of hippos and crocodiles. The lunch offered was the most delicious buffet! Fruits, vegetables, meats and ice cream ;) All in all a great day, that I would be happy to repeat.

Lovely journey to Botswana through Zambia and Botswana to Chobe. The park was lovely and very green this time of year. We saw a great variety of birds and animals especially very close to a mother and baby elephant. Also two Male lions. The cruise on the Chobe river we saw hippos crocodiles buffalo and birds as well as various antelope. Unfortunately being the rainy season it rained and reduced our views. Guides were excellent and it was a very enjoyable day .

Great safari, we saw a lot of animals from large to small. Always amazes me how the guide can recognize some animals from afar

Loved every bit of it, shuttle to and from cruise was breath taking
