Kanana

Kanana is a hidden jewel set on the Xudum River in the south west Okavango Delta.  

Protected by a mix of jackalberry, acacia and sausage trees, Kanana is surrounded by a necklace of islands dotted with palm, fig, ebony and knobthorns and 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.

Guests are accommodated in eight spacious, twin-bedded tents, set on raised teak decks which offer breathtaking views across the waterways.  All tents offer en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water, shower and flush toilet. The tents are well spaced to afford privacy, whilst still being within comfortable distance from the central dining and lounge area.

Dependent on the height of annual floods, the level of water transforms this camp into a true water experience. In the early months of the year you may actually enjoy the visible spectacle of the water rising around the camp.

A land and permanent water camp, Kanana offers superb birding as it hosts a seasonal heronry that teems with activity from July to December. Other activities include game drives, night drives, exploration of the Delta by motorboat, glass-bottomed mokoros with a unique underwater view, guided nature walks and fishing (excluding January and February).

Safari Experience

Situated in the Kanana Concession, the focus of activities at Kanana camp 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 to enjoy the magnificent variety of birds, plants and reptile species found in the area.

Guided bush walks are highly recommended as is fishing for tilapia, African pike and sharptooth catfish.

There is amazing bird life – you can easily see about forty species right in camp!

Wildlife & Birdlife

Within the Kanana concession lies the biggest heronry in southern Africa and the bird life there is superb.

The fact that no one else goes there except the Kanana guests means that for many years it has not been disturbed.

The area is home to the elusive Pel’s fishing owl and the rare sitatunga.

Not to mention the general game.

Added Extras

Sleep out deck for nights out in the bush under the stars.
