        I have wanted to visit the Okovango Delta for decades & this exceeded my expectations. Just getting to Jacana is an adventure in itself, as several reviewers have said - this is a true water camp, in May the only way in & out is...More

        Thank you so much for your comments which we took great pleasure in reading. We really enjoyed hosting you at Jacana Camp and enjoyed the good humour and good conversations. We hope to see you back again sometime.

        Scenery is beautiful, tents are nice. This is a true water camp, though, with not much of interest after a boat ride and a mokorow ride unless you are really, really big on birds and flowers. Game drive by vehicle is a short distance away...More
