Jacana Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Jacana Camp is a Classic Camp

Wildlife at Jacana Camp

Jacana Camp is set in the Jao Concession, a true wetland area, ideal for the rare sitatunga and abundant red lechwe. In the summer months when the inundation has receded, lechwe, tsessebe, elephant, and zebra are prevalent, with lion, cheetah and leopard often sighted. Wildlife concentrations in this area of the Delta depend on water flow and volume, changing from season to season. Birdlife is abundant; enthusiasts can spot Pel's fishing-owl as well as African and lesser jacanas and other Okavango specials such as slaty egret and African pygmy-goose.
