Is the Wilderness Jacana for Me?
Wilderness Jacana is the archetypal Okavango Delta camp. Situated in the beautiful, expansive Jao Flats, Wilderness Jacana is a place where the rhythms of the arriving (and departing) annual inundation can be seen and felt. The year-round presence of water creates a tranquil environment shared with multitudes of birds – including sought-after ‘Okavango specials’ – and other wildlife which thrives in this unique, water-filled environment.
Wilderness Jacana features five guest tents, each with an outdoor shower. The main area, sheltered beneath giant sycamore fig trees, is the starting point for waterborne voyages of discovery by boat and mokoro (traditional dugout canoe).
INSIDER’S TIP: A safari at Wilderness Jacana is not complete without enjoying a mokoro ride along the tranquil channels of the Delta. Scan passing trees for the elusive Pel’s fishing-owl!
