Kanana Camp

Kanana is a hidden jewel set on the Xudum River in the southwest Okavango. This truely authentic little camp is one of our favoutrites and the area is a necklace of islands dotted with palms, figs, ebony and knobthorn, and is home to a myriad of birds, plants and animals.

Accommodation is in eight spacious, twin-bedded safari 'Meru' style tents, set on raised teak decks to offer breathtaking views across the waterways. Activities vary with the rising and falling water levels of the Okavango Delta. Game drives are offered day and night, or you can explore the crystal clear waterways by mokoro or motorboat.


Kanana is renowned for its seasonal heronry, which is the largest in Southern Africa. Between July and December, this breeding ground is alive with birds, including pink-backed pelicans, yellow-billed and marabou storks, grey herons, ibises and egrets. 

Why we like it

Guided walks are highly recommended in the pretty area with its magnificent birdlife.
