When you set off in a motor boat with your fishing guide (who will tell you about the okavango delta fish species in the area) you are in a unique position to take in the magnificent scenery in the heart of the Delta. With a drink at your elbow and such beauty all around you can truly relax in the silence and peace of this watery paradise, at the heart of the Kalahari Desert.
Birdlife is prolific and the variety of species is astounding - African Fish Eagle and Pel's Fishing Owl are just some of the birds sharing your penchant for fishing. If you stand at the water's edge and cast your line, you could be sharing the space with Buffalo and Elephant.
There are about 70 fish species in the Okavango Delta. Common species include Tilapia, Bass and Bream, although many anglers go after the ferocious river-bred Tiger Fish, found in some lagoons and where the Okavango River feeds into the Delta.
The African Pike is another great fighting fish, but you'll also be able to catch huge Catfish into the bargain. Fishing in the Okavango Delta is especially good between March and December.
Kanana Camp is situated on the Xudum River in the south-west Okavango. The camp offers both wet and dry habitats which attract a wide variety of wildlife year round.
