Jacana Camp

Location
Okavango Delta, Botswana

Jacana Camp lies within a private reserve in the northwestern part of the Okavango Delta and is bordered on the east by the Moremi Game Reserve. Lying in the very heart of the delta, the reserve captures all the wonder of the Okavango. Narrow water channels cut through 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-adapted antelope, and the rare Pel's fishing owl. Jacana Camp is built on a thickly forested palm island, many of which dot the area and invite exploration. Vast, open floodplains also provide epic vistas and desirable wildlife habitat. Jacana is a water-oriented location that 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.

Jacana’s five Meru-style tents are built on wooden decks to capitalize on the view across the plains. Each tent has an en suite bathroom that is enclosed, plus an additional attached outside shower and clawfoot bathtub looking out across the floodplain. The camp has a plunge pool for cooling off in the midday sun, and the main dining area is on an elevated platform between two magnificent sycamore fig trees, surrounded by a dense grove of wild date palms. Guests may relax in the cozy bar and lounge or around the open fire pit area under the stars.
