Kanana Camp Description
Kanana Camp is a hidden jewel set on the Xudum River in the southwest Okavango. The area encompasses a necklace of islands dotted with palms, figs, ebony and knob thorn trees, and is home to 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 camp has eight spacious safari tents, with en-suite bathrooms. Each tent is set on raised decks which offer breathtaking views across the waterways. The lounge and dining area also look out onto the waterways and the ever changing vistas.
Kanana Camp Game Viewing and Wildlife Activities
Kanana is set deep in the Delta amongst grass covered islands formed by fertile eroded termite hills dotted with fig, palm and other trees providing shade and a look out for predators to spot their prey on the flood plain. The Kanana tract encompasses a necklace of islands on the Xudum River.
Dependent on the annual floods, the level of water transforms this dry camp into a true water experience and in the early months of the year you may actually enjoy the visible spectacle of the water rising around the camp.
Enjoy the magnificent variety of birds, plant and reptile species found in the area. Kanana hosts a seasonal heronry that teems with activity from July through to the summer months, a true highlight at Kanana which converts all visitors to avid ‘twitchers’ at first sight. Guided walks are highly recommended in this pretty area as well as fly or spin fishing for tilapia, African pike and sharp tooth catfish.
Mokoro and motorised boat trips are available as are morning and night drives are available depending on the water levels.
