Jacana Camp, Okavango Delta is surrounded by floodplains and papyrus swamps making for a magnificent water-based delta safari experience.
The camp is situated on an island within the Jao Concession on the Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana.
The camp by Wilderness Safaris features five en-suite Meru-style tents. This includes a family tent which is built on raised wooden decks offering scenic views of the Okavango Delta.
This region of Botswana is a water wonderland for wildlife enthusiasts. It is home to unique and rare Delta bird and animal species, which include red lechwe and the Pel’s fishing-owl.
The main dining area has been built on an elevated deck between two large fig trees, surrounded by dense wild date palms. The camp's cosy lounge offers an area with an open fire set under the star-studded African sky. The plunge pool offers welcoming refreshment in the warm afternoon sun.
Located in the Okavango Delta, the Jacana Camp provides primarily water-based wildlife activities with safari drives during the summer months, which is dependent on water levels and the exact time of year. The mokoro excursions are not to be missed activity during which guests glide seamlessly along the magnificent waterways in a traditional dug-out canoe.
Here they have the opportunity to observe small fascinating creatures of the Delta, including hippo and crocodile and a great variety of waterbirds. The boating trips in the 12-seater and 7-seater boats offer good wildlife viewing in the channels further away to the west.
Usually, during the summer months, travellers may participate in the safari drives when the water levels are low. Walking safaris with professional, armed guides are wonderful ways of getting close to nature and to observe the smaller animals.
