    Ok so I'm about to send my deposit for next year to hunt at kanana in botswana. I can't find anything negative out about them and all seems great. However I'm about to leave for this years safaris and I'm with the huntessentials guys and am told they own and personally manage all of their lands listed in their brochure. Today I'm blousing around their website and on their price list they have kanana down as one of their properties. Is kanana a specific ranch or a specific area? I'm not going to go into detail as its a long story but could someone in the know please let me know just what is meant if someone told you they were going to hunt kanana? As I said before I really need an answer and would greatly appreciate any info you guys can offer.

    by this point, just select 3 - 7 letters, put them together in any given order and I am probably a lifetime member

    I'm kinda like you only in October, kind of out there on a wing and a prayer.

    Did you get a list of references?

    If you get something please let me know

    I havent found anything bad but so far not much to affirm my opinion

    PM me if you gt even a clue

    well if they are related with huntessential then it only means another booking agent for them but then it would mean huntessential doesnt exclusively own all their properties as they state. im really thinking kanana is the description of the area but its just not one ive heard mentioned much. i will shoot you a pm if i ever do hear anything negative on them though. as for now everything seems on the up and up

    Welcome to Kanana Wilderness | Living the Kalahari

    The above link is for Kanana Safaris in Bots. I have never hunted with them and do not personally know anybody who has; however they were recently offering some very nice plainsgame packages from July through October of 2013 on another site.

    Yes mike, he offered those packages here as well and they are very attractive and thats why I'm giving him a shot. However I did just talk with them and they confirmed huntessential is acting as a booking agent for them. Its nothing bad for kanana but this could be bad for huntessential and then again maybe I am reading their marketing wrong and nothing is wrong at all. However I am leaving for zim in less than two weeks to hunt with them and I am going to keep my hopes low for a double leopard kill as dissapointment is the only thing that really hurts me these days. I will get back on here and give you guys a full hunt report when I return from zim in august. Thanks for the help mike.
