Kasane Branch

The Kasane branch was first formed in 2003, from the conception of the idea to present the main focus has been Conservation and Education through birding.

The Branch aims to hold an event each month with the involvement of all the Local Stakeholders from Local Companies, Guides and Government organisations such as the Department of Wildlife. The branch also aims to further develop Education programs for schools. We have members from all different areas with different levels of expertise. An event can be a presentation too a walk and is a great way to meet new people and learn more about birds. (See calendar of Kasane branch below)

The main activities that are held are
-The Chobe Water Bird Count (January and July)
-Vulture Nest Count (August)
-Common Bird Monitoring (February and November)
-Tick Bird Workshops for individual Companies.

We consider ourselves very lucky in Kasane as sometimes you don’t have to go far to ensure you get great sightings. With the Chobe National Park, Forest areas and the beautiful Chobe River it is an ideal place for birders.
