Jacana Camp is a Classic Camp

4Cs Projects at Jacana Camp

As a camp dedicated to the sustainability of conservation and community, Jacana Camp is intimately involved in projects that support these principles.


Tubu Joint Management Committee

Jao Concession holders and the University of Botswana (under the auspices of the Biokavango Project) launched a committee to reduce conflict between the community and the Jao Concession – specifically with regard to curbing poaching and over-fishing.

Children in the Wilderness

In November and December every year, Jacana Camp is closed to guests and instead hosts some 96 children from rural areas in northern Botswana on six Children in the Wilderness programmes.

Pack for a Purpose

Wilderness Safaris has partnered with Pack for a Purpose, a non-profit organisation that provides travellers with up-to-date information about required supplies for community-based projects. Guests that would like to bring along a contribution can view the needs list for Jacana Camp’s community projects on the Pack for a Purpose website.
