Kanana Camp is situated on the Xudum River in the southwest of the Okavango Delta. Kanana means “paradise” in the local Setswana language and offers guests the perfect location for a traditional safari experience in an area known for its diversity of species and abundant wildlife. This camp offers the best of both, a water and land safari experience.
Accommodation is in safari tents, with twin beds and en suite bathrooms. There are showers, hot and cold water and flushing toilets in each tent. The tents are spaced apart affording guests even more privacy, without being too far from the main camp.
Kanana Camp is situated in a private concession which ensures privacy as well as a variety of activities, including night drives and guided bush walks are considered a highlight in this game rich area. While game drives in open 4x4 vehicles are available, the best way to experience this region is on foot or on a Mokoro (dug-out canoe). An abundance of elephant can be found in the area, however, guests can also expect to see a wide variety of general game, including, impala, lechwe, hippo, crocodile and lion.
Kanana camp is one of the few camps in the Okavango Delta to have an exclusive heronry where many migratory water birds come to have their young from July onwards. This is a very important nesting site for these birds and one of the few in the Delta. The birds you are likely to see roosting here are the yellow bill stork, marabou, open bill stork, darters cormorants and slate egrets. Kanana Camp is now regularly reporting sightings of the rare Pels fishing owl in addition to hyena, which has also become a rare sighting in this area. Even more rare are the Situanga, which live in swamps and are very good swimmers. They may take to the water to evade predators such as leopards or wild dogs.
