Day 1-4: Kanana Camp, Okavango
Lying in the middle of the largest expanse of sand on earth the Delta is one of Africa’s most amazing, sensitive, and complex environments supporting a spectacle of wilderness and wildlife. Unique as one of the world’s few inland deltas, the placid waters and lush indigenous forests of the Delta offer a safe haven for innumerable bird and wildlife species. The elusive Sitatunga antelope has found refuge in this pristine wetland ecosystem, while birds such as the African fish eagle, Pel’s fishing owl and many others are magnificent in their spectacular display. The Okavango Delta offers a number of activities for the visitor where fishing and bird-watching are obvious attractions, but game viewing, especially for rare species, is also possible. One can also take to the waters of this magical world of islands and lagoons by canoe, mokoro or powerboat. Although a holiday here doesn’t come cheap, it is an unforgettable experience.
Today you will fly to Maun either on Air Botswana or SA Airlink. On arrival in Maun you will be mt by a representative from Safari Air and transferred in a light aircraft to Kanana Camp.
Please bear in mind that there is a strict luggage allowance of 20kgs per person in TOTAL, including camera equipment and that all stowed luggage must be in soft-sided bags in order to fit into the aircraft hold. Most light aircraft transfers are in Cessna 210 or Cessna Caravans.
Overnight: Kanana Camp
This deluxe tented camp is situated among spectacular ebony and acacia trees concealing the eight traditional safari tents with en-suite facilities. The view is breathtaking as the permanent tents are on raised platforms overlooking the surrounding floodplains. The dining and lounge areas encircle a massive ancient fig tree, which is the focal point of the camp’s public area.
Kanana offers a plunge pool for cooling off in the warmer months and daily activities include morning and afternoon game drives, walks, mokoro excursions and excellent fishing. Kanana’s private heronry is a rare attraction and can be accessed when the lagoon is in flood. Ker & Downey is renowned for its excellent “bush” dining with each meal being thoughtfully prepared by the local chef.
Guided walks, game drives, motorised boating and mekoro trips – as you are a group of six, your activities will all be private.
