Bruce Cantle, Managing Guide for Ker Downey Botswana, has known that there was a heronry in the Kanana area for some time, but on investigation by a KDB team with the help of Northern Air, they found not only the small heronry they were looking for but also a much larger one (as large as the one at Gadikwe) in the Kanana concession area and EXCLUSIVE to Kanana Camp.
Bruce is busy working on routes to travel there as well as planning a site for clients to best view the unfolding scene. Bruce reports that many birds are breeding: Yellow Bill Stork, Marabou, and Open Bill Stork, Darters, Cormorants and Egrets.
During the 2002 season, there were only 16 days that leopard was NOT sighted at Kanana ! There are getting regular sightings of Pels Fishing Owl and lion at present and guests have seen Civet and hyena.
