Our first visit to Botswana and an excellent introduction. This place is wonderfully remote and we were treated to game viewing on the way from the airstrip to the camp. We were lucky enough (in mid-December) to be the only guests on the first of our two nights here. We therefore had the pick of the rooms (though all seemed...

last place we stayed in and the location was great. We slept out under the stars one night which was great, scary thinking we are out in the middle of nowhere and a little surreal. Steve our guide was a lovely guy and knew his stuff. Rooms were lovely. You could definitely see that this was a step up from...

We endeavour to make all our guests feel part of the "Kanana family" and provide an exclusive experience.

Kanana Camp was the best-run camp we experienced in Botswana. The staff was simply outstanding--friendly, efficient, thoughtful, with a very knowledgeable guide and tracker (Isaac and Foster). The tents were great--well appointed with a view over the water. The wildlife was not as plentiful as at Chitabe Lediba but the highlight is the ride on the mokoros to the rookery....

This place is amazing!! Fantastic staff!! Chalets with breathtaking views-feeling like you are one with the "bush veld" and very private. Coffee on the veranda watching the sunrise is spectacular! The pool was quiet, stocked with drinks.....and such a nice surprise!! Didn't know they had one?

What can you say about Ker and Downey's Kanana Camp. It takes a lot to get used to the indulgences of the activities, the food service, the overall customer service in general was stellar. They even had a birthday cake for me and it wasn't my birthday. We tried all the activities with our guide Kigaso and some boating activities...

We have been to many safari camps and Kanana ranks among the very best. The Botswana philosophy - in the Delta at least - is high cost, low volume and you get what you pay for in terms of solitude and privacy. None of the mad rush to beat other vehicles to sightings as experienced sometimes elsewhere. The staff are...

We arrived in a small plane and were met at the airstrip by our guide for the stay, Doctor. He proved to be a superb guide and relentless in his pursuit of all of the wildlife the Delta had to offer. We saw a pride of lions within our first hour in the bush. They had just feasted on a...
