Okavango Delta, Botswana
A hidden jewel on the Xudum River, Kanana is located in the southwest of the Okavango Delta. The area encompasses a necklace of islands dotted with palms, figs, ebony and knobthorn, and is home to a myriad of birds, plants and animals.
The nature of the habitat means it is the perfect place to experience the diversity of species found within the Okavango Delta. The tents are well spaced, affording privacy whilst remaining within comfortable distance from the main camp area.
Guests are accommodated in seven spacious twin and double-bedded safari tents and one family tent, each with en-suite bathrooms with shower, hot and cold running water and flush toilet. The tents are well spaced, affording privacy whilst remaining within comfortable distance from the main camp area.
Located in the remote inner reaches of the Okavango Delta is a place of luxury and serenity called Kanana Camp. The main lounge and dining area encircle an ancient massive fig tree, the best possible views of the surrounding delta can be enjoyed at any time of the day. Relax at the pool and enjoy a cocktail while exchanging stories of the bush with fellow safari-goers around the campfire.
The staff are incredibly well trained, friendly and accommodating, they really do make you feel at home. To match the views from the dining area is the great cuisine on offer, from fresh baked bread every morning to sumptuous decadent evening feasts.
Situated in the Kanana Concession, the focus of activities at Kanana varies with the rising and falling levels of the Okavango Delta. Activities include morning and late afternoon game drives in open safari vehicles, with afternoon game drives often continuing into the evening. Alternatively, you may explore the crystal clear waterways by Mokoro or motorboat, and enjoy the magnificent variety of birds, plant and reptile species found in the area. Birding is spectacular, and Kanana hosts a seasonal heronry that teems with activity, a Kanana highlight which converts all visitors to avid ‘twitchers’. Guided bush walks are highly recommended as is fishing for tilapia, African pike and sharptooth catfish.
The following camps compliment Kanana well, and should be considered when extending an itinerary.
