Botswana currency

Hi. Can someone tell me if I can use USD or ZAR in and around kasane/chobe? Or is it better/needed to have pula? Thanks

our last trip we just used rand and had no problems, we shopped in Kasane and stayed at a couple of lodges.

We also managed at border crossings with it.

Rand worked fine in most places we shopped. Dollars were sometimes declined. Easiest of all is to hit an ATM in Kasane for a small withdrawl of Pula that will cover your needs for the number of days you'll be in Bots.
