The Okavango Delta
Nestled in an intricately woven and watery landscape, you will find Kanana Camp. A true Delta experience awaits, inhabited by a myriad of birdlife and wildlife unique to this exceptional ecosystem. The area is a birder’s paradise, boasting a huge number of migrant birds, aquatic birds, raptors, one of the largest heronries in Southern Africa and the hauntingly beautiful Pel’s Fishing Owl.
Kanana Camp accommodates 16 guests in 8 light and airy tents, cleverly combining understated luxury with an authentic and relaxed home-from-home atmosphere. The sitting and dining areas of the camp are built on stilts to maximise the fantastic views of the floodplains and palm islands. The camp is built among the lofty shade of ebony, knob thorn and ancient fig trees with wooden walkways connecting the main areas to the secluded tents a short distance away.
There are many Safari activities on offer at Kanana including bush walking and game drives in open 4 x 4 vehicles. Probably the best and most fitting way to experience this area is in the traditional Mekoro (or dug-out canoe) where you will glide silently through the reeds, drawing you intimately into one of the World’s most pristine wilderness areas. Kanana is a popular venue for breeding herds of elephant who frequently bathe with their calves in front of camp and splash around having fun whilst at the same time, leaving the observer in awe of these gentle giants. An impressive list of other animals reside in the area, including Lion, hyena, hippo, wild dog, cheetah making this a truly fantastic all-round destination.
