The entire staff at Kanana is superb. Every member of the staff engages you to build a relationship; at no moment do you feel like this is a commercial transaction. That is an incredible gift in the world we live in today. Mark and Georgi are terrific managers and the multi-talented staff are responsive to your every need. The guides - Amos, Isaac, Owner are the ones we met and worked with - are incredible on both the land and water safaris. The wildlife is amazing - seeing a mother Blue Wildebeest lick off the amniotic sac off her newborn and help it struggle to stand for the first time, watching the power of a male elephant in musk, being fortunate enough to observe the rarely seen Sitatunga, both male and female AND get great photographs. Be sure to travel in a Mokora through the delta to experience the life in and around the water up close. If you are a birder, Kanana is a must. The heronry is spectacular and given our visit just at the beginning of summer we were able to see babies still in the nest of the Marabou and Yellow-billed Storks, the Sacred Ibis, and watch 100's of Egrets and Herons flying in to nest for the night. Be sure to go on a night run as well. You will definitely see something special - hippos foraging out of the water, jackals (we got to watch two pups play), hyenas, etc. And you may well see an elephant on the edge of camp after dinner. You will hear
wonderful animal sounds as you are falling asleep and wake up to a chorus of bird life that will
be in your memory bank for life.
