Kanana Camp
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.

Client Testimonials

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
