Abington, Pennsylvania

First Botswana is absolutely unique. The few humans are mere spectators; the show is nature. The camp has a beautiful sensitivity and respect for this. The staff will absolutely do anything to improve your comfort and experience. The communal dinning is just wonderful. We will remember this camp forever.

It was very clean& tidy camp,with well kept public areas and tents, which were quite spacious and comfortable overlooking the waterhole. The camp was quiet during our stay, but we were...

Upon landing on the airstrip, we knew we were in for a most unique experience for our first visit to Africa. The staff, our lodge (aka room), the food, the drives, the water safaris (as we called them), each one was more fascinating than the previous and not to be out down by the upcoming. At our first "sundowner", I...

We were the first and only guests here when they reopened on March 1st after their annual break. It was a little weird but on the other hand we got undivided attention from all the staff!

We visited Kanana for the second time in November so lovely to be back. The staff are always so helpful and welcoming.
