Jacana Camp is a water wonderland, home to definitive Delta bird and animal species, from red lechwe to Pel’s fishing-owl. A true water camp on a remote island deep in the Okavango Delta reveals the magic and mystique of this area.

Jacana Camp has five en-suite Meru-style tents, including a family tent, built on raised wooden decks to facilitate its panoramic views of the Okavango Delta. Each has its own outdoor shower. 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 lounge with an area for an open fire under the stars; and a plunge pool for cooling off in the midday sun.

Being a ‘water camp,’ Jacana Camp offers primarily water activities with game drives during the summer months – dependent on water levels and time of year. Glide seamlessly along the waterways on a mokoro (a traditional dug-out canoe), gaze out from a 12 or 7 seats motorboat in search of game in river channels further away from camp, try your hand at fishing, or if the season and water levels allow, enjoy a game drive for a different perspective.
