Kana Kara Camp, which is situated in the Okavango delta, is characterised by multitude of waterways isolating many islands of differing sizes.
The water originates high in northern Botswana before fanning out to form this wildlife sanctuary. It is between the Vumbura River and the Salinda spillway that the vast plains of NG12 are situated. On the edge of the Salinda spillway, as the river meanders along its course, a picturesque site was located for Kana Kara Camp.
Kana Kara Camp is not a game lodge, but rather a semi-permanent tented safari camp comprising 8 meru type tents, each with en-suite facilities and an outdoor shower. The facilities are modest yet comfortable, and are positioned to command uninterrupted views of the northern delta. The camp is ideally reached by plane from either Maun or Kasane, and this makes the position perfect for guests travelling either to or from the Chobe / Victoria Falls, or from the Kalahari.
Freshly prepared meals enjoyed at scenic dining spaces will punctuate your safari experience which will include mokoro and walking safaris, as well as open vehicle game drives. The rate includes all meals, safari activities, accommodation and a selection of wines, spirits, malts and soft drinks.

Kana Kara Camp Reviews
“We stayed at the Kana Kara Camp the first week of December 2015. It was one of the most magical trips I have ever had. The guides OC and Mr T and others were absolutely fantastic. They made the experience extra special. The camp itself is beautiful on a private island. The tents were very comfortable and quite luxurious.” – Bree05
“We spent four nights in Kana Kara Camp. We had a great time. While it’s primitive, it was comfortable. For instance, showers are a bucket with a shower head attached to the bottom and filled with warm water every evening before dinner. But the staff and food are outstanding.” – Ron B
“Great atmosphere; tent camping with all the luxuries (hot bucket shower, flush toilet, great beds, sounds of hippos at night). Sunset rides in the mukoro dugouts were soul-satisfying. We even had two visiting elephants wander through camp and make it their own.” – SpokaneJan09
