Kanana Mokoro Trail
Kanana Mokoro Trail, Nxabega Concession, Botswana
The Kanana Mokoro Trail is a specially designed mokoro experience, allowing guest a unique opportunity to search for rarely seen creatures such as the sitatunga and Pel's fishing owl.
The Trails camp accommodates a maximum of four people in two twin bedded tents, and includes the services of two professional guides, personal chef, waiter, housekeeper and mokoro guides. You will reach your camp by mokoro gliding peacefully to one of the most remote areas of the Okavango Delta where your rustic bush camp is set up for you on a secluded island.
The accommodation at camp is in spacious dome tents each with private bucket shower (filled with hot water by the camp staff) and long drop toilet. Dinners are eaten around a blazing camp fire with iced drinks in hand and tall tales from your hosts about their experiences in the wilds.
The trails camp is 'mobile', meaning that it can be moved to the best areas (depending on water levels) but it is not moved every night so this is not in essence a mobile safari. It does however have a very rustic and traditional safari atmosphere and is ideal for those looking to get in to a completely remote area of the Delta.
Lighting in the camp is by rechargeable 12 volt lamps, charged by solar power, and all cooking in the camp is bush style, using fire and coals and the decades of experience from our camp chefs.
Activities focus on exploring the Delta by mokoro trip along with some guided walks on the islands. The trails camps is also equipped with rods and spinning lures for those who'd like to try their hand a fishing for bream, pike and silver catfish.

An intimate and exclusive camp, Kanana is set deep in the Okavango Delta, near the Xudum River. The area is dotted with fig and palm trees, providing valuable shade and lookout points for predators trying to spot their prey on the flood plains.
Nxabega, meaning 'place of the giraffe', offers a luxurious tented stay in the wild African bush. With only nine tents, the service is warm and personal, and the staff are very good at the spotting even the most elusive of local wildlife.
Situated in a private concession in the heart of the Okavango Delta, Pom Pom Camp is a simple tented camp set on a seasonal lagoon, balancing time on game drives with peaceful mokoro trips.
