On arrival we are driven to our nearby lodge. Out of the hustle and bustle of Maun, the lodge is situated in a private game reserve, under a canopy of shady trees. Apart from the spacious and luxury rooms on wooden decks, this a the ideal area to take a walk to enjoy the pristine nature and view some of the wildlife which includes giraffe, zebra, springbok, ostrich, eland, oryx and kudu as well as an extensive variety of bird life. Dinner is served by candlelight on the lodge’s expansive teak deck. We can relax in anticipation of the exciting adventure that awaits us over the next few days.

Day 2: Kanana Camp, Okavango Swamps
We are transferred to Maun Airport for our flight into the Swamps. Kanana lies on the Xudum River. The area encompasses a necklace of islands dotted with palms, figs, ebony and knobthorn and is home to a myriad of birds, plants and animals. It is the perfect place to experience the diversity of species found in the Okavango Delta. We enjoy a fine lunch and in the afternoon we are taken on our first game drive in this special area. At Kanana, guests may choose to gamedrive, go on boat trips, do mekoro trips or simply go on a guided walk. There should be time for all of these activities.

Birding is spectacular, and Kanana hosts a seasonal heronry that teems with activity, a Kanana highlight which converts all visitors to avid birdwatchers at first sight.
