Jacana Camp Introduction

Jacana Camp is situated on a magnificent island inside the Jao Concession on the border of the Moremi Game Reserve. The Jao Concession consists of 60,000 hectares of unspoilt African bush. The emphasis at Jacana Camp is on water activities and offers guests a true water wilderness experience. This is a typical Delta camp, with five en-suite Meru-style tents, including a family tent, built on raised wooden decks to facilitate its panoramic views of the Okavango Delta. The main dining area is on an elevated platform between two magnificent sycamore fig trees and surrounded by dense wild date palms. Jacana Camp also has a cosy lounge with an area for an open fire under the stars; and a plunge pool for cooling off in the midday sun.
