  • Over 600 indigenous bird species

Kanana is 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.

Accommodation

Guests are accommodated in eight spacious, twin-bedded safari tents, 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. The annual floods transform parts of this concession into a true water paradise, offering guests the best of both worlds. At certain times of the year guests can experience magnificent game sightings during drives as well as the unique experience of exploring the delta’s beautiful waterways by boat. You may actually enjoy the breath-taking spectacle of the water visibly rising around the camp’s raised teak decks.

Experience
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 is one of the largest in Southern Africa which 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.

We are proud of all our camps and so it is hugely rewarding when safari experts and fellow travelers single us out for special praise. We are really excited to announce that Kanana, for the third year running has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor and has been recognized as one of the Best Community Focused Safari Properties in Africa as well as one of the Best Safari Properties in Africa at the 2014 Safari Awards.
