The whole stay is an adventure: landing on an unpaved airstrip; Mokoro boating through flooded fields; boattrips into the delta; fantastic wildlife viewing; sleeping outside in the wilderniss. But above all a fantastic friendly staff, that go out of their way to give you a great time. Eating with all the guests out on the viewing deck, sharing stories from...

This was one of my favorite experiences in Botswana. Our guide, Doctor, was absolutely marvelous. His outgoing personality and knowledge of the animals and birds was beyond my expectations. He's an excellent tracker! We followed both a male and female leopard for over an hour due to his skilled sense of place and expert driving. The camp is in the...

We stayed at Kanana for three wonderful nights. The tents are absolutely beautifully decorated and very spacious. Every tent has a balcony overlooking the water and it was great falling asleep while listening to the frogs and the hippos outside. Every morning we were woken by a staff member bringing us fresh coffee. The camp has both game drives, walking...

We spent 3 nights at Kanana - our stay was fabulous. The staff was wonderful, the views were great. Animals were abundant and we saw plenty. We also did a walking and night time safari, each of which was excellent. We highly recommend Kanana.

We had a fabulous experience. We traveled as a group (two couples and another friend), and we all loved the activities, ambiance, food, and service. The staff was incredible. Simon, our guide, helped us choose the right schedule for us, found amazing animal sightings, and shared his incredible fund of knowledge. Plus, he is so much fun and enjoyable to...

Everything you want in the Delta falls into place at this camp. Views are amazing and both the boat ride as well as the game drives give you a sense of the wonder which is the Okavango Delta. A special feature are the night drives because you do them after dinner which is great! Gives the feeling that you really...

The highlight of this camp is truly the employees. Alice and BT, the onsite managers, are warm and professional and really set the tone for everyone else. When we were there, we estimated that there was at least a 1:1 ratio of staff to guests! From the moment we were first greeted at the airstrip by our guide Simon, nearly...

Stunning Tended Rooms on platforms under trees with beautiful views of the water. This camp is located in the Southern regions of the Delta, and with no other camps close by, so it feels private and exclusive. Small camp with only 8 rooms, amazing staff with a great sense of humour, that feel genuine and hearty. Meals were such a...

an amazing camp right in the heart of the delta. There seemed to be at least as many staff as guests and the service was second to none. It never ceases to surprise me that a camp in the middle of the African bush can offer such good food. One thing we would like to do differently, and we did...
