A hidden jewel on the Xudum River, Kanana Camp 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 Kanana Camp 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 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 may actually 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 unique experience of exploring the delta’s beautiful waterways by boat. There is also a Sleep Out Deck that offers guests the opportunity to spend the night under the splendid African night sky.

Kanana Reviews

“Delightful, helpful staff. Hugely knowledgeable guides. Fantastic birdlife in a stunning environment. Extremely comfortable beds. Elephants wandering round the camp during the night. An overindulgence of food (it sometimes felt like we were fitting things in between one meal and the next). What more can one ask for.” – Designer Traveler

“Our safari tent was large and very comfortable with a nice view from the veranda out across the water. There was also a nice feature of a fire by the water with a circle of chairs around it which was a great spot for pre-dinner drinks and for gazing at the stars. We preferred the food at lunchtime to dinner especially as there was more of a choice. One lunch was very special – we were going back to camp for lunch when we came across tables laid and staff waiting at a beautiful location by a river where there were numerous birds including Kingfishers diving for fish. Fantastic!” – Pinner Travaler

“A birders paradise. Botswana and Okavango are worth the journey. The suites were large and comfortable, the guides dedicated, but our favorite was the mokoro excursions with Foster – unforgettable. He was wonderful, truly. The game drives were good too but the elephant crossings we saw from the canoe were unbeatable. A few service glitches made us miss our & beyond experiences at other camps; overall staff was kind, but please don’t ask outright for tips, as we experienced – it’s not polite, and we are loving of our African experiences and hopefully generous enough that we give well without asking!” – travalfriend2010
