Jacana Camp is a truly water-oriented camp and offers mokoro and walking safaris all year round. Situated about 25 kilometres west of Mombo, outside the Moremi Game reserve on the Jao flats.

Game drives are on offer year round but night drives are only possible from about September to May as water levels restrict this activity when the flood is in.

Jacana Camp is set in one of the most densely populated wetland areas for Sitatunga and Red Lechwe. Wildlife concentrations depend on the water flow and volume and thus change from season to season.

There is a plunge pool for cooling off from the midday sun. The main dining area is on an elevated wooden deck between two magnificent sycamore fig trees and surrounded by dense wild date palms. Downstairs, there is a cosy bar and lounge with an area for an open fire under the stars.

Rooms & Suites:

This Okavango Wildlife Camp has 5 meru-style tents. Each tent is on a wooden deck overlooking the floodplains and has an en-suite bathroom with flush toilet and shower. The bathroom is enclosed but roofless allowing for showers by starlight. Soaps, shampoos and insect repellents are supplied in each tent.


– 20% Game Drives and 80% Water Activities (but very much dependant on flood levels & time of year).
– Land game drives in 2 x 10 seater open 4 x 4 Land Rovers
– A raised hide located about 40 minutes from Jacana
   (which can be used for sleep outs - maximum 4 people at a time, has a long drop loo)
– Private activities available on request.
– Water game viewing in 6 x 2 seater mekoro (a traditional dug-out canoe)
– Boating trips 1 x 12 seater boat in the waterways to the east of Jacana
– Fishing - on a catch and release basis.
