Jacana Camp Information
- Lodge type; Safari Camp
- Location; Okavango Delta
- Lodge size; 5 safari tents
- Recommended stay; 3-7 nights
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.
Rooms and Suites
Jacana offers up five Meru-style tents, each built 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.
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.
