Kanana Camp is set in the southwestern delta amongst grass-covered islands formed by fertile eroded termite hills dotted with fig, palm and jackal berry trees. The Kanana area encompasses a necklace of islands on the Xudum River, northeast of Pom Pom lagoon and is incredibly picturesque with winding waterways meandering through open lagoons. This traditional camp has an intimate and personal atmosphere, built among spectacular shady trees of ebony, acacia and sausage tree. It offers eight large safari style tents and a family unit equipped with tasteful furnishings and private en-suite bathrooms. The main lodge area is on raised decking encircling the trees and offers a dining and sitting area, a cocktail bar and a refreshing plunge pool.

Activities at Kanana include day and night game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles, game viewing on mokoro excursions, guided walks, fishing, motor boating and sunset cruises. The waterways are lined with reeds and dotted with papyrus and tree islands in this picturesque and tranquil part of the delta. As water levels vary throughout the year so does the focus of activities. The camp managers will advise guests on the best options during their stay. A wide variety of game frequent the islands around Kanana Camp including impala, lechwe, leopard, lion and elephant and you may be lucky to see sitatunga whilst boating. Birding all year round is exceptional with regular sightings of Pels Fishing Owl amongst many others. Kanana Camp is one of the few camps in the Delta to have access to a private heronry where many migratory water birds come to nest from July onwards. Birds you will encounter at the heronry include marabou, yellow-bill and open-bill storks. The sight of thousands of nesting birds is mesmerising and an experience you will not forget. On a three-night stay, guests can pre-book the sleep-out deck, that offers them the opportunity to spend the night under the African sky.

Kanana Camp also boasts one of the nicest sleep-out decks in the Okavango Delta,ย Botswanaย with a prime site overlooking a game-rich and beautiful pan. Because of its location, you will frequently wake up to observe plains wildlife gathered around the pan, warming themselves in the morning sun. The sleep-out deck is a two-storey tree-house located approximately 20 minutes from camp, with a restroom on the first level and an open deck with a double bed on the top level. After dinner in camp, guests will enjoy a night drive to the sleep-out, arriving to a lantern-lit deck and a blazing fire.
