      Jacana Camp

      An Island Refuge in a Wild Wetland

      Jacana Camp is situated in the private Jao Concession on the Moremi Game Reserve boundary in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. Located on a beautiful island and surrounded by the seasonally inundated floodplain and papyrus swamps, Jacana Camp consists of five Meru-style tents built on raised wooden decks to facilitate its panoramic views of the Okavango Delta. Each tent has an enclosed en-suite bathroom featuring a roofless shower which is lit by dappled sunlight or by the stars themselves at night. The main dining area is on an elevated platform between two magnificent sycamore fig trees and surrounded by dense wild date palms. Jacana Camp also has a cozy drinks lounge with an area for an open fire under the stars; and a plunge pool for cooling off in the midday sun. Activities at Jacana Camp include mokoro trips and walking safaris (which must be requested prior to travel) in the Okavango Delta year round, as well as game drives during September and May when the floodwaters have receded. There are also two platform hides within the Jao Concession. Jacana Camp is set in one of the most densely populated wetland areas for sitatunga and red lechwe antelope. All the big animals can be found regularly in the area, including elephants, lions, leopards and buffalo. Wildlife concentrations within this part of the Okavango Delta depend on the water flow and volume and thus change from season to season. Birdlife is abundant; enthusiasts can spot Pel's fishing-owl as well as African and lesser jacanas and a host of other Okavango specials such as slaty egret, African pygmy-goose and western banded snake-eagle.

        Six Countries Summer Special

        Available

        01 Nov 14 - 31 Mar 15

        Ever increasing in popularity, the summer months in Southern Africa (November – March) offer a different safari experience as short showers green the dry grasslands and clean the bright blue skies. Photographers delight in the clear light, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and rare bird sightings. Because the resident wildlife disperses to many abundant water sources, you may have to work a bit harder to see the animals, but you will have the added benefit of seeing many babies who arrive at this time of year. read more

        Game-Viewing Hide

        When the animals can't see you, they go about their business as if you aren't even there. A game or photo hide allows you to get closer for some incredible views and photos.

        Off-Road Game Viewing

        In national parks and some other reserves, rules prohibit leaving the designated safari paths. But the wildlife are not always considerate enough to stay nearby. Get better vantages (and better photos) by heading off-road.
