The Old House is situated in Kasane, adjacent to the Chobe River. The guesthouse is conveniently located within walking distance to all shops and a 10 minute boat ride to the entrance of the Chobe National Park.
The Old House has a total of 9 rooms with 3 twin rooms, 3 double rooms, 2 family rooms and a loft room, all of which are en–suite. Guests can enjoy the lodges’ swimming pool and gift shop.
The Old house offers a range of activities; Vic Falls Day Trip, sunset cruises, boat cruises, game drives, fishing and canoe trips.
This property is located in the small but thriving town of Kasane, where many bigger hotels are located along the Chobe River banks. Entry to Chobe National Park for game drives is via Sedudu Gate ten to fifteen minutes drive from town. For Chobe River cruises, boats depart directly from town. Although wildlife often passes through Kasane (most usually warthogs and the odd elephant) a typical bush experience is not on offer here. Instead you’ll get all the comforts of civilization with easy access to the bush.

Self Drive Directions From The old house
Tucked away in the northeastern corner of Botswana, on the banks of the famous Chobe River, the quaint little town of Kasane rests on the doorstep of the spectacular Chobe National Park . There are no boundary fences separating the village from the park and game such as elephant and warthog are often spotted roaming around the town and hippos at times come onto land to help themselves to the lush grass of manicured lawns. Wildlife such as the elusive wild dog have been seen along the tar roads on the outskirts of town. Within Kasane behind the police station, an ancient baobab tree stands on display, once serving as a local prison. Visitors can look forward to a multitude of activities including game drives through the park, taking a sunset cruise down the Chobe River, visiting a local village or jumping on a day trip to the breathtaking Victoria Falls. Kasane is strategically located close to the Namibian, Zambian and Zimbabwean borders.
