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), motorboat and on foot.
Travelling silently by Mokoro 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 of this Botswana safari is searching for the rare and elusive Sitatunga antelope. Larger mammals that can bee seen near Jacana Safari Camp include Elephant, Buffalo and Lion. Jacana is a true water camp and offers mokoro trips and safaris all year round. As the floodwaters recede, game driving and night drives in open 4X4 Land Rovers are possible, usually from October to March (water levels permitting).
