Property Details

Kanana Camp is located in the remote inner reaches of the Delta. Eight luxury-style tents, accommodating up to 16 guests are built on stilts to ensure all visitors get a good view of the floodplains. Ebony, knob thorn acacia, and sausage trees provide shade on warm days. Inside you will find a color scheme of warm golds, deep grey, rich cream, turqoise, and crisp whites capturing the essence of a 1920s explorer’s experience. Get ready for the day in your en-suite, outfitted with flushing toilets and hot running water. Comfortable beds ensure you drift away into African dreams easily.

The dining and sitting areas are raised on decking encircling a massive ancient fig tree. Bite into freshly baked bread and vegetables. A well stocked bar ensures a cocktail is always close at hand.

While game viewing in 4×4 vehicles is very popular, the best experience is on foot or by gliding silently through the delta by Mokoro. Weave your way through a necklace of small palm-dotted islands. It is a moving and incredible experience, drawing you intimately into nature in its purest form. Your senses will come alive upon hearing the elephants’ morning calls in the distance. With a private guide, you will see these giants taking their daily bath, even a cow gently bathing her baby with her trunk. Careful, she may splash you as you delight in this rare moment that very few on earth ever witness.

Besides the elephant, a wide variety of other game frequent the life-giving force of the Delta, including impala, lechwe, hippo, crocodile, and lion. Migratory water birds like the yellow bill stork and slate egrets come to hatch their young around the area depending on the season.

Sometimes you may only see the situanga antelope’s nostrils floating above the surface of the water, in an effort to hide from leopards and wild dogs.
