Here, with your guide, you board your mokoro (locally-made canoe), from where you'll glide into some of the more remote coroners of this lovely reserve. For 2 nights you'll stay in tiny, simple camps whilst you explore the surrounding wilderness by mokoro in the company of an armed, expert guide Each evening you'll find on a secluded island a rustic bush camp providing your base on the Kanana Mokoro Trail.

You'll be based here for a further 3 nights. In this game-rich reserve day and night game drives, boating and mokoro trips are on offer. Your guide will keep a keen eye out for the numerous predators and large herbivores that frequent this area.
