Ker & Downey Botswana’s luxury tented camp, Camp Kanana, is undergoing a refurb, expected to be completed on March 1.
The camp, on the Xudum River in the southwest of the Okavango Delta, will receive a facelift including an extension of the main area, adding a breakaway seating area adjacent to the current alfresco deck that overlooks the waterways. The camp will also receive new furniture in both the tents and main area, along with the pool deck.
The refurbishment will follow a 1920s Explorer theme while retaining the camp’s classical charm, with the incorporation of rustic elements.
Guests are accommodated in seven spacious twin and double-bed safari tents and one family tent. The en-suite bathrooms have a large walk-in shower and flush toilet. Families are accommodated in a two-bedroomed tent, sharing an en-suite bathroom, with the addition of an outdoor shower.
The tents are spaced apart, affording privacy whilst remaining a comfortable distance from the main camp area.
The annual floods transform parts of this concession into a water paradise, offering guests the best of both worlds. Guests can experience magnificent game sightings during drives, as well as the unique experience of exploring the Delta's waterways by boat or mokoro (local canoe). Guests are sometimes able to see the water visibly rising around the camp’s raised teak decks.
A Sleep Out Deck offers the opportunity to spend the night under the African sky.
