This is a hidden gem! just outside of Seronga, the camp offers a beautiful view over the Okavango flood plains. Sitting in the dining area you can watch a plethora of beautiful birds and the occasional hippo. I went for a float around in a mokoro (hollowed out tree boat)- this was a fantastic activity and gave great hippo viewings! The rooms are absolutely glorious, and fantastically serviced by the friendly staff. Henry, the camp manager, is a smiley and friendly face who does everything to make your stay as great as possible.
I stayed at Jumbo Junction in December 2020. I spent about half my time staying at the camp, and the rest on a mobile safari in the Okavango Delta hosted by Jumbo Junction's guide, Two Boy. The lodge is very comfortable, and the staff is very friendly and always eager to help. The food is simple and delicious. I look forward to visiting again in winter to see the delta in flood.
my husband and i had a wonderful trip. we were taken by boat on a 1 and 1/2 hour trip form Guma lagoon to Seronga where we were met and drove 22 kms to the jumbo junction cape. the staff were all extremely friendly and pleasant and the situation of the camp is wonderful, on the edge of the water we took a two mokoro trips in the lagoon just close to the camp and walked on nearby islands a highlight was the game drive. This involves a boat trip to a big island where we met a game drive vehicle the game and birds were plentiful and the environment pristine the food was excellent and made with great care I highly recommend the camp it is possible to reach jumbo junction by 4 x 4 vehicle from the ferry at Shakawe
The owner organized a safari for us near his lodge. Great professionalism of the guides is a beautiful day spent in the bush !!!! The lodge is well organized and very pleasant, excellent service with great attention to customers. Thanks a lot !
Jumbo Junction is located about 5kms outside of Gunotsoga village, very easy to find - just keep driving along the main gravel road from the Mohembo Ferry. Greg and Sue, the camp managers, kept in touch during my drive and I knew that I would be in good hands for the rest of my stay. I spent 4 nights in one of the chalets at Jumbo Junction. The chalet was spacious, very clean with extra blankets for the winter chill. Greg and Sue made the effort to ensure I was comfortable but also gave me space and time to take in the beautiful delta! I did game drives and mokoro rides which Greg and the guides - Two Boy, Baruti, Hustler and Joy- organised with great precision. The guides were knowledgeable, experienced and made me feel comfortable and safe even during the scary moments like when we approached a pod of hippos sunbathing during our mokoro ride or when we watched 2 male lions 15 meters away. They went above and beyond to ensure I saw all the animals on my bucket list and indeed, I saw all of them! The food was amazing- soulful and thoughtful 3 course meals and the cakes during high tea were absolutely delicious. I went to bed with food babies each night and only my tight jeans were complaining. I randomly made a comment about craving ice-cream and next supper, Sue had made a rich, delicious vanilla ice-cream for dessert- an example of the personal touches and thoughtfulness by the camp managers! Thank you to all staff at JJ! Great experience and definitely worth a visit! Overall, 5 star treatment, food and activities!…
We had amazing welcome song by the staff and the service was phenomenal. It was my birthday and the staff put a lot of attention to details, arranging the rooms and the birthday cake. It's truly a special place. The game drive was also very good, our guide Two boy was good fun and we saw lots of animals, a lot less touristy compare to other places. I thoroughly enjoy the mokoro too. A very memorable experience.
Oh my goodness…,Where to begin? This was one of the most amazing, unforgettable, rewarding & educational experiences of my life. Jumbo Junction was my first experience of the real Bush in Botswana, a real gem set amongst the beauty of the Okavango Delta. To be greeted on arrival by a huge herd of elephants passing through the Delta close to camp and the privilidge of sharing my game drives with Dr Sianga, a Lion Program Coordinator from CLAWS, tracking collared lions (& yes, we were successful!) were 2 of the many highlights. Sue, Greg and the whole team made my stay extremely comfortable and welcoming, from the smallest of touches to the big things. The freshly prepared meals were delicious & Sue's gluten free cakes & bread were amazing. It was hot, dry and extremely dusty but the whole place was spotlessly clean. The pool was a wonderful way to cool down after a morning in the Bush. My chalet, extremely comfortable, private & well appointed, had amazing Delta views and the wildlife, in all it's shapes and forms, was abundant. Everything about Jumbo Junction was fantastic, I loved every minute of my stay & will definitely return! Extra special thanks, guys, for taking care of me as a lone traveller with impaired vision. Your patience meant so much. Sometimes it's the smaller things that make the biggest impact. xx…
Jumbo Junction was a great place for a couple of days R&R whilst driving across the northern panhandle. They were hugely helpful with us and our vehicles as well as having a really lovely and relaxing camp. They work closely with the local community and conservationists, meaning that we got so much more than just great photos out of our stay and that I felt good supporting somewhere that supports their environment so well.
Jumbo Junction is located along the northern section of the Okavango Delta, the most beautiful part of Africa. In my decade of living and working around East and Southern Africa, I have to say this is my favorite spot. What sets Jumbo Junction apart is the staff. Greg, Sue, Monoso and Baruti are friendly, professional and resourceful. Using Jumbo Junction as a base allows us to get our work done and then share stories with the guides and guests about our lion conservation program. We would not be as successful without collaborating with JJ!
We had the best game drivers in the world: Two Boy and Monoso. These guys had eyes in the back of their heads and knew their territory very well. This also goes for the various birds. Also a great sense of humour and we had some good times in the jeep with them and could not wish for better game viewing and good company. Our hosts, Greg and Susan, and their friendly staff made us feel relaxed and very welcome. We stayed in a beautiful room that we enjoyed thoroughly. Dining under the Botswana sky, next to the fire place, what more could you ask for?
