Kanana Camp (Okavango Delta) Botswana
Kanana is a hidden jewel set on the Xudum River in the southwest Okavango Delta. The area encompasses a necklace of islands dotted with palms, figs, ebony and knob thorn trees, and is home to 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.
Dependent on the height of annual floods, the level of water transforms this 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.
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.
Situated in a private concession a wide variety of activities is available at Kanana. Activities vary 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 take place in the morning and late afternoon, and further into the evening on night drives.
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 in the area is superb; Kanana hosts a seasonal heronry that teems with activity from July to December and 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 sharp tooth catfish.
