Home Accommodations Jacana Camp

Jacana Camp

Okavango Delta, Botswana

Jacana Camp is situated in a private reserve in the northwestern part of the Okavango Delta and bordered on the east by the Moremi Game Reserve. Lying in the very heart of the delta, the reserve captures all the magic of the Okavango. Narrow water channels cut their way through the papyrus and reed beds in the permanent delta to the north and east of the reserve, providing the perfect environment for the elusive sitatunga, a water-adpated antelope, and the rare Pel's fishing owl. Lush palm islands dot the water and invite exploration, and Jacana Camp is built on one such thickly forested island. In the reserve’s central region, vast, open flood plains provide stunning scenery.

Jacana’s five Meru-style tents are built on wooden decks to accentuate the views across the floodplains. Each tent has an en suite bathroom that is enclosed but roofless, allowing for showers by starlight -- or by dappled sunlight and shade. The camp has a plunge pool for cooling off in the midday sun. The main dining area is on an elevated platform between two magnificent sycamore fig trees and is surrounded by a dense grove of wild date palms. Downstairs, guests may relax in the cozy bar and lounge with an area for an open fire under the stars.

Jacana Camp is a water-oriented camp and offers mokoro (dugout canoe), boat and walking safaris year-round. Day and night game drives are also available, depending on receding water levels in the delta. All the big game are found in the area, including elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo.
