Southern Africa: Jacana Camp (Botswana)

About the camp

Jacana Camp is a true Okavango Delta water camp, located on an island wonderland in a region with amazing wildlife and teeming with birds. Explorations by mokoro (a traditional dug-out canoe) provide an idyllic connection to a bygone era through a tranquil passage along papyrus-fringed channels. The camp consists of five Meru-style tents built on raised wooden decks to facilitate its panoramic views of the Okavango Delta. Each tent has an enclosed en-suite bathroom featuring a roofless shower which is lit by dappled sunlight and shade or by the stars themselves at night. 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 drinks and lounge with an area for an open fire under the stars; and a plunge pool for cooling off in the midday sun.
