Okavango Delta, Botswana

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

Kanana is a beautiful camp, extremely well run and guided be the Ker and Downey folks. While it does offer some impressive birding opportunities, this part of the Okavango Delta has mots of water so it not known for being a top-notch wildlife viewing area. Unless you are a twitchier, Kanana is best combined with a camp in a more wildlife rich area.

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. The annual floods transform parts of this concession into a true water paradise, offering guests the best of both worlds.

Guests are accommodated in seven spacious twin and double-bedded safari tents, each en-suite bathroom has a large walk-in shower and luxurious fittings. Families are accommodated in a two-bedroomed tent, sharing an en-suite bathroom with the addition of an outdoor shower – ideal for families in this child-friendly camp. The tents are well spaced, affording privacy whilst remaining within a comfortable distance from the main camp area.

Due to the camps location guests can experience magnificent game sightings during drives as well as the unique experience of exploring the delta’s beautiful waterways by boat or Mokoro. Activities include early 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. The Sleep Out Deck offers guests the opportunity to spend the night out under the magnificent African night sky.
