Explore the Delta

Heading out on a game drive in this private concession just before first light is worth the early morning rise and shine. This time of day affords you a better chance of spotting the ever-elusive leopard or the African wild dog that are part of a research project that runs in the area.

Once back at the lodge, a hearty breakfast awaits. The rest of the day can be enjoyed relaxing with a good book on the balcony overlooking the lagoon.

In the afternoon, after lunch and a siesta, join one of the motorised boat cruises into the delta.

Water safari

After breakfast you’ll be flown to the next lodge on your itinerary – Kanana Camp. Situated in a private concession that’s known for its top-notch water safaris, Kanana Camp offers a wider variety of activities than most of the other lodges in the area.

Continuously receiving rave food reviews from returning clients, a light lunch at the camp will awaken your taste buds with the camp’s bush cuisine. With your appetite satisfied, the rest of the afternoon is at your leisure.

The fall of night brings the opportunity to spot nocturnal wildlife and predators when exploring on a guided game drive.
