Kanana is a hidden jewel located on a private concession 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.
Situated in the Kanana Concession, Kanana has the luxury of being able to put on both land and water activities. There is also a fantastic sleep out deck here; possible the best I have come across.
Kanana is a luxurious tented camp in the heart of the Okavango Delta floodplains. Its position over a deep year-round channel reveals stunning views of this watery paradise and all its inhabitants. The remote location means Kanana can only be accessed by light aircraft, followed by a brief transfer. Unlike with most African safaris, water activities take the lead here, with vehicle-based safaris playing second string.
Guests are accommodated in seven spacious twin and double-bedded safari tents, each en-suite bathroom has a large walk-in shower and luxurious fittings. Families are accommodated in a two-bedroomed tent, sharing an en-suite bathroom with the addition of an outdoor shower – ideal for families in this child-friendly camp. The tents are well spaced, affording privacy whilst remaining within a comfortable distance from the main camp area.
Kanana’s communal building preserves its 1920s explorer theme throughout. The lounge offers comfortable seating around coffee tables with snug rugs underfoot and elegant lighting overhead. In the dining area, there’s one long table where everyone has meals together. The extension of the communal area has resulted in an increase to the size of the property’s deck out front, which is a lovely spot unwind and soak it all in. There’s also a very inviting pool where guests can enjoy a dip between activities.
