our favourite wet camp

We loved Jacana as much this time as on our previous visit.

The staff were excellent, and the welcome very warm. Joseph was an excellent guide

The bird life was excellent and we seemed to get a lot closer to them than we have on previous trips.

Jacana Camp review

Intimate camp in the heart of the Okavango. Our guide, "Speedy" was excellent and after the Kalahari was a stark contrast.

The island on which the camp is situated was visited regularly by troops of baboon and elephant. The wildlife in the area is plentiful with great sightings of leopard, many species of antelope and birdlife everywhere you look.

Our fear of mosquitoes due to the swamp was not founded (late Aug/ early Sept) and the bite count was a pleasant zero.

No game on the menu :-(.

Expert Africa comments

Just to clarify, this traveller likes to eat game meat, and the comment about ‘no game on the menu’ is a littoral one. See their review of Chobe Game Lodge, where they did eventually find some on the menu!
