Situated on a small island in the beautiful Jao Flats area of the concession, Jacana offers remote seclusion. Accommodation is in 5 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 cosy lounge with large viewing deck, and 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.
Jacana Camp is a true water camp, where boating and Mokoro excursions take advantage of the quiet channels and inundated floodplains and some of the fascinating creatures of the Delta – maybe even hippo and crocodile – as well as the wealth of waterbirds can be seen. Day game drives take place all year roun
There are 4 standard tents with 3 twin bedded tents and one king size bedded tent. There is 1 twin bedded guide/pilot tent which is much smaller than a standard tent.
Jacana Camp consists of 5 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. There is 1 family tent which accommodates 2 adults and 2 children.
Children above 8 years are welcome. However, food and meal times can be adjusted to suit younger guests and many children find safari a fascinating and informative experience.
Jacana Camp offers mokoro, boating and walking safaris all year round.
Game drives are also on offer year round but night drives are only possible from around September to May as water levels restrict this activity when the delta is in flood. The camp also has a plunge pool to help you cool down on hot days.
