Situated on a small island in the beautiful Jao Flats area, Jacana Camp offers remote seclusion. Jacana Camp is set in one of the most densely populated wetland areas for the rare antelope species sitatunga and red lechwe. Other major species found regularly in the area include elephant, lion, hippo and crocodile. 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 containing a wide range of Okavango specials such as Pel’s Fishing-Owl, African and Lesser Jacanas, Slaty Egret, African Pygmy-Goose and Western Banded Snake-Eagle.
Jacana Camp is a true water camp, offering mokoro safaris all year round, as well as motor boat game viewing. Game drives are available when the floodwaters have receded; generally between October and April. This is an ideal location to experience the heart of the Okavango Delta and to gain a full appreciation for the unique environment.
Accommodation includes five spacious en suite tents, each with an outdoor shower, built on raised wooden decks, all with stunning views over the water.
The main dining area is on an elevated wooden deck between two enormous sycamore trees, and surrounded by dense wild date palms. Downstairs, there is a cozy lounge with large viewing deck, a plunge pool, and an open area to sit around the fire. Behind this is another thatched relaxation area with hammocks. Meals are sometimes enjoyed outdoors in a traditional African boma.
