Kanana is set on the banks of the Xudum River in the southwest of the Okavango Delta. At Kanana guests are accommodated in 8 spacious, twin-bedded safari units, set on raised teak decks, which offer views across the water.
Dependent on the annual floods, the level of water transforms this normally dry camp into a water experience and in the early months of the year you may actually enjoy the spectacle of the water rising around the camp. All tents offer en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water, shower and flush toilet. Placement of the tents allows for privacy, yet still within a comfortable distance from the central Lodge area.
There are a number of activities available at Kanana and the focus varies with the rising and falling levels of the Okavango Delta. Game drives in the morning and late afternoon (which continue into the evening), are a great way to explore the area.
Alternatively explore the waterways by mekoro or powerboat, and enjoy the magnificent variety of birds, plant and reptile species. Kanana is particularly known for its birding, and has a seasonal heronry teeming with activity from August to the summer months. The area is also known for its sightings of the rare Pel’s fishing owl. Guided walks are highly recommended in this diverse area.
