Dependent on the annual floods, the level of water transforms this dry camp into a true water experience, and in the early months of the year you may actually enjoy the visible spectacle of the water rising around the camp. Kanana lies on the permanent water of the Xudum River in the southwest Okavango within a private concession. The island on which Kanana is situated is part of a necklace of islands that are formed when the water of the Delta rises.
The area is dotted with palms, figs, ebony and knobthorn and is home to a multitude of birds, plants and animals. Guests are accommodated in eight spacious, twin-bedded safari 'Meru' style tents which are set on raised teak decks, from which guests can see across the waterways. All the tents have en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water, shower and flush toilet.
Kanana lies within a private concession that allows guided walks, mokoro excursions and night drives in addition to game drives and motorboating (water levels permitting) making it a true combination camp where guests can enjoy water and land activities.
The focus of activities varies with the rising and falling water levels of the Okavango Delta.
