Kanana occupies a secluded spot in the southwest Okavango Delta overlooking the Xudum River. This private concession with Meru-style safari tents offers access to guided game drives, night drives, boat safaris, walking safaris, glass-bottomed mokoro trips and fishing. Ask about the thrilling Sleepout Deck! The area is known for its great sightings especially of Wild Dog and rare birds such as Pel’s Fishing Owl.
Guests stay in 7 large Meru-style canvas and wood safari tents elevated on teak decks. There is one family tent accommodating 4 people. Each tent has double or twin beds, an en-suite bathroom with hot and cold running water, shower, and flush toilet. The furnishings are traditional and locally made with a heavy emphasis on wood and natural décor coupled with supreme comfort. Each tent is secluded from the next, offering intimate privacy, and has a private deck with views over the surrounding landscapes.
An exclusive-use Sleep Out Deck is available for guests wanting to spend a night under the stars.
The spacious communal areas at Kanana are raised on stilts above the ground, offering relaxation and respite for all guests. Meals are served in the spacious dining tent, which has both indoor and outdoor seating. A viewing deck, bar, lounge, and a swimming pool with sun loungers add the final luxurious touches.
