Jacana Camp is situated in the private Jao Concession in the Okavango Delta and is completely surrounded by water year round. The surrounding wetlands are densely populated with swamp specialists like sitatunga and red lechwe antelopes and the area abounds with hippo, elephant, crocodile and other big game. It's also home to a rich variety of water birds including wattled cranes, Pel's fishing-owls, both species of jacanas as well as other seldom-seen species such as rails, crakes and moorhens.
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. 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 cosy drinks and 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 fishing expeditions, boat trips and peaceful game viewing by mokoro (traditional dug-out canoe) to make the most of the beautiful, watery surroundings. Walking safaris are offered year round and, depending on water levels, game drives are available from about September to May as the floodwaters recede. There are also two platform hides within the Jao Concession.
