Things to do at Jacana Camp

Being a ‘water camp,’ Jacana Camp offers primarily water activities with game drives in the dry season – dependent on water levels and time of year.

Mokoro Excursions

Glide seamlessly along the waterways of Jacana in 2-seater mekoro (a traditional dug-out canoe; singular: mokoro) and see wildlife from the water’s viewpoint.


Trips in 12-seater and 7-seater boats in the waterways to the east of camp allow for good game viewing in the channels further away.


Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment (spinner rods and a small range of lures) is on offer seasonally on a catch-and-release basis.

Game Drives

Land-based game drives are offered in open 4x4 Land Rovers, each accommodating a maximum of seven guests, thus allowing each guest an outside seat. Bean bags are available to use for steadying your camera while on game drive.
