Spend night in Kasane?

I will be doing a two week excursion in Botswana that will end at Kasane (last activity is a Chobe river tour). Unsure what time exactly this ends (or whether a time estimate would be reliable). We intend to spend 2-3 nights at Victoria Falls (staying Zimbabwe side probably). Since the border closes, would it make sense to spend the first night in Kasane and go to Victoria Falls the next morning? If so, is there anything to keep in mind and is there a best way to get to Victoria Falls the next day? Thanks :)

if the river tour is an afternoon one,they usually start at 3pm and go for 3 hours so an overnight in Kasane is the best option.Road transfers can be organised by many local lodges/guesthouses but you can also book with operators in President Ave who have shopfronts advertising these.

Yes it is not advisable to do the transfer after dark even if the border is open until 8pm. Many places in all budgets for a pleasant overnight in Kasane; when enquiring about accommodation, ask about if they can arrange transfer to Vic Falls too . . .
