Located on a beautiful island and surrounded by seasonally-inundated floodplains and papyrus swamps, Jacana Camp has five Meru-style tents built on raised wooden decks to facilitate its panoramic views of the Okavango Delta. Each tent has an enclosed en-suite bathroom. The main dining area is on an elevated platform between two magnificent sycamore fig trees and surrounded by dense wild date palms.
