Okavango Delta Safari at Kanana Camp

Kanana Camp in Botswana's Okavango Delta is just the place from which to experience the wonders of the Delta, with land and water-based game viewing.

Okavango Delta Safari Game Drives

The guides at Kanana Camp are truly exceptional and can track animals over long distances using subtle clues from the bush. It's almost as if they have x-ray vision, to be able to pinpoint rhinos hiding behind termite mounds, or a pride of lions skillfully getting ready to take down a buffalo. During guided game drives, there are always blankets and hot water bottles available in the vehicle. Stop en-route for some snacks and drinks (hot and cold).

Mokoros and Motorboats

While staying at Kanana, get out onto the water if you can. It's an excellent contrast to land-based activities. You can try safaris by motorboat, but also by mokoros which are less intrusive without roaring engines, making it easier to get close to birds and animals. These are steered by proficient mokoro polers who are incredibly informative and will provide an in-depth narration regarding what you see around you.

Visit the Heronry

Whether you love birds, or you're not too phased, a trip to the Heronry is an awe-inspiring experience, regardless. You'll be amazed at the sheer sight (and sound) of them nesting in the trees and surrounding bushes. There are all sorts to be found, from pelicans, marabou storks, herons, ibis and egrets. During mokoro rides, be sure to watch for Pel's fishing owls as well as Giant eagle owls.

Safari Dining

At Kanana, the food is excellent and is worth mentioning when it comes to activities at this camp. The meals are expertly prepared with tasty and fresh ingredients, but what makes them stand out is the dining format. As we may have mentioned before, there is a strong sense of camaraderie here, as you dine with other guests. The Kanana guides will also pop in to join you for a while to share a few anecdotes of life in the Okavango Delta.
