Taking its name from the Setswana word meaning 'paradise', Kanana Lodge is a luxury camp set in the south west of Botswana's Okavango Delta. Offering a total of only 8-tented suites, Kanana offers an intimate and exclusive stay in this magnificent location.

Activities at Kanana Lodge include morning and afternoon game drives to see the plentiful wildlife of the region, as well as guided nature walks on the many islands. Take to the waterways and channels on a mokoro (traditional dug-out canoe) or in a powerboat for a different game-viewing experience.


  • Beautiful island location on the Xudum river in the Delta
  • Game drives and all year boat and glass-bottomed mokoro trips
  • Breathtaking birding with access to the largest heronries in the area
  • A remote, luxury bush camp

"This is such a special place in the Okavango Delta with a superb location for water and land based game viewing activities. I love the small intimate feel of the camp and that it’s so remote, as well as the very friendly and efficient staff"
