Mma Dinare

Kanana Camp overlooks the Xudum River and a number of tree-filled islands, home to large numbers of animals and birds. The landscape changes throughout the year as water levels rise and fall. Activities include land-based game drives and water-based mokoro and motorboat rides, designed to showcase the variety of this region’s flora and fauna. There are even glass-bottomed mokoros so you can see down into the water beneath you. You can also explore on foot with an experienced guide for a closer investigation of your natural surroundings. This is good birding territory, with Pel’s Fishing Owl regularly sighted. From Kanana you have access to a heronry which attracts thousands of nesting birds from July each year.

Another advantage of a private concession is the possibly to take night drives, a fascinating contrast to wildlife viewing by day. When conditions permit you can also explore by mokoro and on foot, for a well rounded safari experience.

Back at the camp you can continue the wildlife watching as you relax on the large deck and observe animals by the river. Sun lovers can make for the pool deck, cooling off with a refreshing swim. Elsewhere, the thatch-roofed lounge offers respite from the heat, and there’s a dining tent with a long table designed for group meals. The firepit comes into its own around dusk and later, the venue for drinks and stories.

Tents are set on timber decks, have hardwood floors and wooden door frames for a sturdy feel, and canvas walls with large mesh windows. Full length curtains can be drawn at night for privacy. There’s a shaded sitting area to the front with a canvas wall that can be opened on to the open deck which faces the river. The en-suite bathroom has twin hand basins, a shower, flush toilet and dressing area. There’s a larger tent for families.

This is an extremely comfortable camp in an excellent location with a pleasantly relaxed atmosphere.
