Kanana Camp

Pom Pom Concession, western Okavango Delta

Kanana Camp is a hidden jewel set on the Xudum River in the southwest Okavango. 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.

At Kanana Camp guests are accommodated in eight spacious, twin-bedded safari style tents, set on raised teak decks, offering 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 affording privacy, whilst still being within comfortable distance from the central dining and lounge area.
