Nestled into the wetlands of the Jao Concession, Jacana Camp sits perched atop a delta island and is accessible only by boat. Although the wilderness area and activities change due to seasonal variations, the charm and hospitality remain consistent. Five Meru-style tents, each on a deck overlooking the floodplains, has an en-suite bathroom with flush toilet and shower. The outdoor bathroom is surrounded but roofless, allowing for showers by starlight. A copper tub sits on the private deck overlooking the delta for guests to relax and experience a back to nature soak. Enjoy the panoramic views from the elevated dining room, relax with a book in one of the common lounges, or take a dip in the camps plunge pool during your Botswana Tour.
Jacana Camp is set in one of the most densely populated wetland areas for sitatunga and red lechwe. All the big animals can be found regularly in the area, including elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo. Birdlife is also abundant; aficionados can spot Pel's Fishing-Owl as well as African and Lesser Jacanas and a host of other Okavango specials such as Slaty Egret, African Pygmy-Goose and Western Banded Snake-Eagle.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
