Kanana Camp

Best safaris in Botswana when staying at Kanana Camp

Find the delightful Kanana Camp nestling between tall ebony and sausage trees on the edge of a permanent water channel in the astonishing Okavango Delta, a hidden jewel on the Xudum River, and one of our top Botswana safari camps of all time.

Experience one of the best safaris ever in this haven, made for exploring the islands dotted with palms, figs, ebony and knob thorn, home to myriad birds, plants and animals. The perfect place to experience authentic wilderness in the Okavango Delta. Make the most of 7 spacious, twin-bedded safari tents with en-suite showers, luxury amenities and wonderful private decks over the watery landscape. Families are well looked after in this child-friendly Okavango camp, in a two-bedroomed canvas suite with an outside shower, and plenty of room to relax. 

The annual floods transform parts of this concession into a true water paradise, offering guests the best of both worlds in such a supremely wild location. Experience magnificent game sightings during drives, combining this with thrilling boat rides and mokoro safaris into the water channels and lagoons.  You may feel in awe at the breath-taking spectacle of the water visibly rising around the camp’s raised teak decks. Stay a night in the innovative Sleep Out Deck listening to nocturnal animals and watching the star-studded African night sky as you are lulled to sleep.

Kanana Camp sits quietly in the gorgeous Kanana Concession, with all game-viewing activities being based on the water levels, the lagoons and the delta swamps. Early morning game drives start exhilarating days in the Okavango Delta while evening drives end the day in memorable tranquillity. Mokoro rides are ever peaceful, on the level of birds and animals, an immersion in nature’s bounty as observer. 

Birding is spectacular and Kanana is super proud of its seasonal heronry, one of the largest in Southern Africa, and a highlight that converts all visitors to avid ‘twitchers’. Guided bush walks are highly recommended as is fishing for tilapia, African pike and sharp tooth catfish.

Overview

The Okavango Delta is home to the remote Kanana Camp, adjacent to the famous Moremi Game Reserve, perched in the private Kanana Concession. The camp hides under a rich canopy of tall ebony and sausage trees on the edge of a permanent stretch of a diverse wetland channel. Choose Kanana accommodation as part of your Botswana safari to experience this mixture of seasonal floodplains and forests combined with a permanent channel and flood meadows – on game drive vehicles, in boats and mokoros and on foot.

We recommend Mokoro game viewing in this one-of-a-kind private concession if you want to get closer to the more than 400 bird species in this section of the Okavango – and keep your eyes peeled for the elusive water antelopes, the sitatunga and the lechwe, shy and camouflaged in this indigenous foliage. 

Back at base after every game viewing spectacle when you feel on a high, settle into the main guest lounge and dining area with its open decks, impressively designed around an ancient and inspiring strangler fig tree. Sip a drink at the bar before a delicious Botswana grilled meat meal around the boma fire. 

Retire later to one of 8 deluxe bush chalets with canvas walls and stunning outlooks over the magnificent lagoons and floodplains. Spacious, attractive interiors, comfy beds and ensuite showers complete the comfort within. We recommend Kanana Okavango Camp in all respects and we customise wonderful special deals to the Botswana game viewing regions so that you can see more game in less time!
