Set on an island and surrounded year round by water, Jacana Camp is a quintessential Okavango Delta 'water camp'. The surrounding wetlands are densely populated with swamp specialists like sitatunga and red lechwe antelopes and the area abounds with hippo, elephant, crocodile and other big game. It is also home to a rich variety of water birds including wattled cranes, Pel's fishing-owls, both species of jacanas as well as other seldom-seen species such as rails, crakes and moorhens.

Water-based activities such as fishing expeditions, boat trips and peaceful game viewing by mokoro (traditional dug-out canoe) make the most of these beautiful, watery surroundings. Walking safaris are offered year round and, depending on water levels, game drives are available from about September to May as the floodwaters recede.

The Bush Buddy programme has been specially designed to appeal to pre-teens and teenagers with age-appropriate activities, snacks, gifts and arts & crafts.

Standard Twin Tent

Jacana Camp accommodates a maximum of 10 guests in five comfortable Meru-style tents. Accessed by private paths, the tents are set on wooden decks with sigh-inducing views over the Okavango Delta's western floodplains.

Each luxury tent has an en suite bathroom with flush toilet and a shower that is open to the African skies.


Incorporating many natural elements, a cleverly designed and multi-level central area includes a cosy bar and lounge near the camp’s open-air fireplace, a quiet library and reading area on a separate floor and a restaurant on the top floor with endless views of floodplains and waterways.

The camp's facilities include a plunge pool and a curio shop plus a gazebo with hammocks - ideal for a nap in between safari activities. There is a raised hide located about 40 minutes from camp which can be used by small groups for thrilling sleep outs.

As part of the Bush Buddy programme, children from six to 17 will enjoy everything from cooking in the great outdoors to learning the secrets of the San Bushmen's paints and inks used to create their mystical rock art.


Buffet meals at Jacana Camp are served in the main dining area, set on an elevated wooden deck beneath sycamore fig trees and wild date palms and overlooking the area's floodplains.

Watch the sun rise silently over the Okavango Delta at breakfast time and conclude the day with your gourmet dinner around the roaring campfire under the African stars.
