Okavango Delta

A hidden jewel on the Xudum River, Kanana is located in the southwest of the Okavango Delta. The area encompasses a necklace of islands dotted with palms, figs, ebony and knobthorn, and is home to a myriad of birds, plants and animals.

One of the highest-ranked lodges on TripAdvisor, but still a property where big game viewing can be sparse if water levels are high. Suggest booking with a camp in a drier location to ensure big game viewing.

Ben Nelson

Situated in the Kanana Concession, in an area with rising and falling levels of the Okavango Delta, Kanana has the luxury of being able to put on both land and water activities.

Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in open safari vehicles, with afternoon game drives often continuing into the evening. When out on game drives our window seat guarantee ensures no more than four guests per vehicle and individual use of a camera mount. Alternatively, you may explore the crystal-clear waterways by Mokoro or motorboat, and enjoy the magnificent variety of birds, plant and reptile species found in the area. You can also do guided walks!

Wildlife is in abundance with frequent predator sightings such as lion, leopard and wild dog all making Kanana their hunting grounds. The camp also affords private access to one of the largest heronries not only in the Okavango Delta but Southern Africa and is an excellent area for birding with regular sightings of Pels Fishing Owl.

To do

Fishing is available throughout the year (with the exception of January and February).

Birding

Birding is spectacular with Kanana hosting a seasonal heronry that is one of the largest in Southern Africa, a highlight that converts all visitors to avid ‘twitchers’. Guided bush walks are highly recommended as is fishing for tilapia, African pike and sharptooth catfish.
