Kanana Camp

★ ★ ★ ★ ★
US $1190.00

The Kanana Camp is on the Xudum River in the south-west region of Botswana's Okavango Delta. The camp offers travellers a fantastic wildlife experience.

This part of Southern Africa has many small islands with figs, palms, figs, knob thorn and ebony. Home to many plants, birds and animals, a great diversity of species can be admired in this unique habitat.

The Okavango yearly floods change some areas of the Kanana concession into a great water paradise. Guests enjoy the best of both worlds: exploring wildlife through waterways and bushveld. Sometimes, one can observe the water visibly rising around the camp’s raised wooden decks.

Travellers experience fantastic game sightings during the guided safari drives as well as the thrilling experience of exploring the scenic waterways by boat of the Okavango Delta. Furthermore, the camp offers Sleep Out Deck where guests may spend the night under the vast African night sky.

Safari travellers are comfortably accommodated in the camp's seven spacious double and twin bedded luxury tents. One family tent is also available for parents wishing to share their accommodation with the kids. Each of the safari tents offers an en-suite bathroom which is complete with hot and cold running water, shower, as well as a flush toilet. A Kanana tent affords privacy while being located within a convenient distance from the main camp area.

The swimming pool offers a relaxing place for guests to enjoy during their stay. A dining room with the bar as well as the sitting area at the camp and welcoming. The favourite campfire overlooks the Xudum River of the delta.

Located in a private concession visitors have a choice of various activities. Besides the thrilling safari drives, the guided walking safaris and the Mokoro trips, travellers can enjoy fishing for bream (May to September) and tigerfish ( September to mid-November). 

Depending on the water levels, water boating is also available which provides private access to one of the largest heronries in the Okavango Delta of Botswana. This area is particularly perfect for enthusiastic bird watchers were regular sightings of Pel's Fishing Owl occur.

The camp is accessed by light aircraft, usually connecting from Maun or Kasane. As most safari travel is in a small plane, each passenger is limited to one soft-sided bag, weighing no more than 20kgs which also includes the hand baggage.
