At Kanana guests are accommodated in eight spacious, twin-bedded safari units, set on raised teak decks, offering breathtaking views across the waterways. Dependent on the annual floods, the level of water transforms this dry camp into a true water experience and in the early months of the year you may actually enjoy the visible spectacle of the water rising around the camp. All tents offer en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water, shower and flush toilet. The tents are well spaced affording privacy, whilst still being within comfortable distance from the central dining and lounge area.

Our opinion

Kanana is a true Kalahari wilderness experience which brings you to a tranquil oasis on the western boarder of Botswana and Namibia. The atmosphere is informal and the bushmen are fabulous guides through this remarkable landscape and ecosystem.

Water based safari’s are the main activity from June to October with November to May being more fitting if you are looking at just one camp for your safari.
