Wild and remote luxury tenting
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.
At the lodge
Wrapped around a large strangler fig tree, Kanana's central area is raised on wooden stilts. It includes three open plan areas, two comfortably intimate lounges and a large central dining area. Here the colonial era meets contemporary African design, with old pictures and carved African masks lining the canvas walls while bright fabrics add a splash of colour. Sit in a safari chair around the fire pit outside or relax in a recliner next to the swimming pool.
There are seven large tents with king-sized or twin beds, and a family tent, all elevated off the ground. The en-suite has hot and cold running water, twin porcelain basins, brass finishes and matching mirrors. Enjoy all the essentials and more, with a standing fan, large mosquito net and private covered deck. This is the perfect place to drift off to sleep to the sounds of the bush.
Kanana camp offers a great mix of activities. Water activities are usually the highlight, with easy afternoon excursions in a glass-bottomed mokoro (dugout canoe). You might prefer to venture out by power boat to cover a greater distance and try your hand at catching a variety of fresh water fish, including the infamous tiger fish. On land, enjoy day and night game drives or bush walks - a chance to explore the numerous islands that make up this stretch of the Delta.
