Jacana Camp Okavango Delta Botswana Safari Lodges Bookings

Situated about 25 kilometres west of Mombo, outside the Moremi Game Reserve on the Jao flats, Jacana Camp is a truly water-oriented safari camp that offers mokoro and walking safaris all year round. As the floodwaters recede, game drives and night drives in open 4x4 vehicles are available from September to May - water levels depending. Owners Cathy and David Kays come from a family of nature lovers. Like all families raised in and around the Okavango, wildlife is in their blood, and they have spent most of their lives out in the bush. When they won the rights for the Jao Reserve in the tender process, they were determined to make this Botswana's finest reserve. They turned their backs on hunting, even though it is allowed in this reserve. They are only the second reserve in Botswana not to hunt, when hunting is allowed and have decided to focus all their efforts on developing Jao into a superb photographic reserve.

Jacana Camp Activities
Jacana Camp is a true water camp, becoming a small island surrounded by flooded plains when the Okavango Delta is at its peak flooding each year (usually from April to October). During the height of the floods, the activities at Jacana Camp revolve around exploring the waterways of the Okavango by mokoro (dug-out canoe), motor boat and on foot. Travelling silently by mekoro, is a wonderful way to experience the Okavango as you glide silently through the shallow flood plains enjoying the magnificent bird and aquatic life. One of the highlights is searching for the rare and elusive sitatunga antelope. Larger mammals in the area can include elephant, buffalo and lion. Taking a mokoro ride to a distant island, then stopping for a lengthy walk before enjoying a leisurely brunch on a sandy bank is a good way to appreciate the true wilderness atmosphere and unique scenery and wildlife of the Okavango - with no one else around us.

Jacana Camp only accepts children 6 yrs and over. No childcare/baby-sitters are provided for. Children must be under the care of their parents at all times.
Please Note: Children 6-12 yrs require the use of a Private Vehicle and Ranger for all activities - this will be at an additional charge.
