Kana Kara Camp

Kana Kara Camp

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

A short bush plane transfer takes you into one of the remotest parts of the Delta where the fun begins with a game drive back to camp - the final stretch being completed by boat to the island.

A pre-emptive word of caution: Kana Kara is not for everyone. If you can live without internet access and your hairdryer for a few days; if you can forgo the private plunge pool and your favourite 18-year-old whisky just this once; and if a hippo snorting and munching its way through camp is your idea of an enjoyable experience then read on. If not, opt for a luxury lodge, like Chief's Camp, for a true five-star safari experience.

But that’s not to say you have to don leopard skins and face-paint to hunt for your supper. Not by a long shot.

Accommodation is in large walk-in tents with twin beds, cotton linen and an en suite bathroom with hot-bucket shower, washbasin and a proper flushing toilet. The main tent has simple canvas chairs around a communal table, comfy Morris chairs, a campfire, a solar-powered charging station for your camera and, err, well, that’s about it really.

You’ll be well fed and watered but don’t expect haute cuisine, vintage wines and silver service. Even the game viewing is authentic relying on the skill of your amazing guide and a good dose of luck on your safari by boat (hand-made, human-powered of course), on foot and in the open-sided game viewing vehicle.

Kana Kara is in concession NG12, which covers an area of about 1,000 sq. km around the thumb-like appendage where the pan of the Okavango panhandle begins. With the many channels and endless open plains plus one helluva game guide, the wilderness experience is sure to be exceptional. Lions, elephants, rhinos, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, wild dogs, buffalos, hippos, giraffes, zebra, antelope aplenty and the amazing Delta birdlife all call this unspoilt pocket of wilderness their home - no trespassing, please.
