Jacana Camp is a fairly small camp built on a little island amidst the large open floodplains of the Jao Flats. The Okavango's levels fluctuate throughout the year but Jacana is usually completely surrounded by water, giving it a true island feeling. This also means that water-based activities can generally be offered year-round. When water levels permit, occasional dry-land 4WD trips to Hunda Island, for game viewing, are also an option. ***STOP PRESS*** We have been advised that boat trips have been suspended owing to very low water levels. This activities should resume later in 2016 but contact us for more details. Mokoro excursions are very limited.

Our view of Jacana Camp

This authentic Delta camp is a firm favourite of our team. It stands out for its stunning location, excellent birdlife and informal, tropical air. Jacana Camp makes a particularly good place to end a safari, or when used in the middle of a trip, as a welcome break from the 'serious' business of big-game watching. Come for a classic water-based Delta experience, and we hope you enjoy this camp as much as we do.
