Jacana is tucked away on the edge of the crater lake. The rooms are wooden lodges in the forest overlooking the lake. They are comfortable and there are no mosquito or insects to bother you,though there are nets above each bed. The food is simple but very good. Please note it is in the National Park so you do have to pay the park fees to stay there. However the fees are used to conserve the environment and support the local very poor communities. Staff are super friendly and I would recommend anyone interested in seeing this fantastic National Park to stay there. Queen Elizabeth NP is the equal of any such place in this part of Africa .
Was at Jacana safari lodge and, the staff was very friendly, slept like a baby and the food was great. Had a great time of peace and quiet in the company of black and white Colobus monkeys and the many forest birds. Sure..I will visit again!
This is an amazing, rustic safari lodge. The meals served are outstanding, with fresh ingredients, great choices, and incredible presentation. The staff is courteous and attentive. The individual cabins are really cool. Well appointed, with wood fired water heaters to service every two cabins. As in many African Safari camps, generated electricity is limited to certain times in the morning and evening, but they are flexible. I would give this lodge 5 stars but the access roads in become nearly (or totally) impassible after it rains. Overall, you'll love this place!
This lodge had a great atmosphere, such a friendly host. The food was excellent and the service was very good. The room is overlooking the lake and the lodge was comfortable. Well worth the visit. Give it a try.
Was fortunate to have stayed a night at this awesome place during a recent visit to Queen Elizabeth NP. It is located pretty far inside the forest, making it pretty secluded. It is located at the edge of a crater lake, which is where they derive all the water for the rooms. The staff are very friendly and they are ever-ready to provide you outstanding service and an amazing experience. My room was just by the water, and if you're lucky you can hear hippos!! There are a lot of chimpanzees in the forest across the lake, and sometimes you can hear them communicate with each other!! One unusual experience you will have is while bathing here. They process and treat the sulphur water from the crater ( and it's absolutely safe to bathe in it!) , so the water has the smell of rotten eggs almost due to the sulphur content. I got used to it in the first few mins. For the same reason, they provide you with a bottle of mineral water for brushing your teeth!! If you do stay here, make sure you visit the legendary Python cave near-by. This place is certainly worth staying at!…
