Kanana Camp is located in the southwestern part of the Okavango Delta. The water flows through the delta very slowly. This means that the Okavango Delta has a reversed season; it is in the dry season that the water is highest. Most of the thousands of islands in the delta are covered with trees. And the animal world in the delta is overwhelming. Kanana Camp consists of eight large safari tents equipped with beautiful beds and tastefully decorated en-suite bathrooms. And a view over the Delta. From Kanana you can make trips by jeep, by motorboat or by mokoro.
