Place: Situated on a small island in the scenic Jao Flats area of the concession, Jacana is a true water camp, where boating and mokoro excursions take advantage of the quiet channels and inundated floodplains and some of the fascinating creatures of the Delta – maybe even sitatunga – as well as the wealth of waterbirds that can be seen. Day game drives take place all year round.
Accommodation: Five tents are built on raised wooden decks, all with beautiful views over the water. The main area is set on an elevated wooden deck nestled between two enormous sycamore trees, surrounded by dense wild date palms, with a large viewing deck and open area to sit around the fire.
Purpose: Jacana is dedicated to, and is involved with, projects that support community upliftment – including hosting Children in the Wilderness (CITW) camps since 2012, as well as partnering with the Tubu Joint Management Committee and the Pack for a Purpose initiative.
