Kanana Camp is a hidden jewel set on the Xudum River in the southwest Okavango. Kanana is luxurious tented camp with year round water and land activities and excellent game viewing. 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. Set on a private concession, activities at Kanana include game drives, walking, boating, mokoro and a sleep out option.
At Kanana Camp guests are accommodated in eight spacious, twin-bedded safari style tents, set on raised teak decks, offering breath-taking views across the waterways. Refurbished in 2019 the spacious tented rooms, all en-suite with private decks, are fresh and tastefully decorated in keeping with the natural surroundings. The tents are well spaced affording privacy, whilst still being within comfortable distance from the central dining and lounge area.
The nature of the habitat means it is the perfect place to experience the diversity of species found within the Okavango Delta, with excellent big game viewing as well as birding. Dependent on the annual floods, the level of water transforms this dry camp into a true water experience and in the early months of the year you may actually enjoy the visible spectacle of the water rising around the camp.
Being in a private concession a wide variety of activities are available at Kanana Camp and the focus of activities varies with the rising and falling levels of the Okavango Delta and your Professional guide will assist you in planning your days to best explore the area.
Game drives in specially designed vehicles in the morning and late afternoon, into the evening on night drives. Alternatively you may explore the crystal clear waterways by mokoro or powerboats, and enjoy the magnificent variety of birds, plant and reptile species found in the area. Of special note is the birding in the area, the concession hosting a seasonal heronry that teems with activity from August through to the summer months, a true highlight at Kanana Camp which converts all visitors to avid ‘twitchers’ at first sight. Guided walks are highly recommended in this pretty area as well as fly or spin fishing for tilapia, African pike and sharptooth catfish.
