Talk to the Expert


With a Kenyan father, Indian grandparents, and a Portuguese surname, travel is in my blood. I am enthralled by Africa and would happily talk about this diverse continent’s wildlife, cultures and experiences all day, every day.

Jacana Camp Overview

A small camp with just five tents providing an intimate stay on a little island that sits among the vast open floodplains of the Jao Flats. All have en-suite bathrooms and are built on wooden decks, providing spectacular views of the surrounding water. Jacana is a water-based camp that provides both walking and mokoro safaris throughout the year

Located in the Jao Concession of the Delta Okavango, Jacana Camp is ideal for birdwatchers and viewing water-loving wildlife like hippos and elephants. As the delta’s water levels fluctuate throughout the year, during the peak of the floods it has a true island feel. When water levels are lower, especially in September and October, occasional trips to Hunda Island can be made in four-wheel drive vehicles for game viewing too. That’s the best time to come to see the big animals, including leopard, lion, and buffalo along with ground hornbills. Birdlife is impressive year-round and include multiple heron species, wattled crane, cormorant, egret and saddle-billed stork.
