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 runs up to six Children in the Wilderness programmes, hosting about 96 children from neighbouring areas and towns.Read more: Children in the Wilderness
