Kanana Camp is a water-based safari lodge in the Okavango Delta where life takes a gentle and sedate side road off the game viewing highway.
On the edge of a lagoon fed by the constant channels of the Okavango Delta, Kanana Camp has a sensational position with permanent water and island floodplains all around.
The rooms are tented chalets on decks with gauze front and sides through which you can see the delta from your cozy bed. A small shaded balcony with Morris chairs gives you a chance to relax and watch the delta paradise do its thing. The en suite bathroom has hot running water and flushing toilets; rooms have standard fans, mini safes and a welcome basket on arrival.
The living area, also raised on stilts, surrounds an a massive fig tree filled with birds. Wooden decks clad in comfortable chairs enjoy the generous shade of the riparian forest and command timeless views across the delta and the elephant- and hippo-friendly lagoon just below you.
Game viewing activities are mostly on water with excellent poler/guides taking you in mekoro along the channels to bird-infested groves, islands and papyrus lined lagoons. The birdlife and wilderness and unhurried semi-aquatic wildlife are an altogether different tableau to the big game safaris in nearby Chobe and Namibia's Etosha National Park.
8 safari tented rooms with classic Okavango Delta views; en suite bathrooms with hot water; private balcony; fan; safe; morning tea; welcome basket; large living area beneath deep shady trees; lounge; dining area and viewing platform; laundry; airstrip and transfers; mokoro and delta boat safaris; walking safaris; game drives and night drives in winter (dry season from May to September)
Activities at Kanana Camp include mokoro and motorboat water safaris; guided game walks on the plains and in the dry months, game drives. Big game - read the mighty predators and large antelope - while encountered from time to time, is not a focus at most Okavango Delta camps. Moreover it is the scenery, the birdlife, the hippos and waterbuck that take centre stage though you may well see elephant - they're hard to miss.
