Kanana Camp

Accommodation in Okavango Delta

Peaceful, serene Kanana Camp is remote and beautifully isolated. Here you are at one with Mother Nature at her best.

A hidden jewel on the Xudum River, Kanana – in a private concession in the southwest of the Okavango Delta – offers superb land- and water-based safari activities. The area encompasses a necklace of islands dotted with palms, figs, ebony and knobthorn, and is home to myriad 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 seven spacious twin- and double-bedded safari tents and one family tent, each with en-suite bathrooms with shower, hot and cold running water and flush toilet. The low-key yet wonderfully luxurious tents are well spaced, affording privacy while remaining within comfortable distance of 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 you may even enjoy the breathtaking spectacle of the water visibly rising around the camp’s raised teak decks. Experience magnificent game sightings during drives as well as the special experience of exploring the Delta’s beautiful waterways by boat. A sleep-out deck offers you the incredible opportunity to spend the night under the splendid African night sky.

Activities offered at Kanana vary with the rising and falling levels of the Okavango Delta. Enjoy morning and late afternoon game-viewing 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 a Kanana highlight is the seasonal heronry that teems with activity. Guided bush walks are highly recommended, as is fishing for tilapia, African pike and sharptooth catfish.
