Each of the five Meru-style tents have adjoining enclosed, roofless bathrooms on a raised wooden deck overlooking the surrounding floodplains. The main dining area is on an elevated wooden deck between two magnificent sycamore fig trees and surrounded by dense wild date palms. Downstairs, there is a cozy pub and lounge, with an area to sit around an open fire under the stars.

From September to May, as the floodwaters recede, game drives and night drives in open 4 x 4 vehicles are available (depending on water levels). The camp is set in one of the most densely populated wetland areas for Sitatunga and Red Lechwe, but game concentrations depend on water flow and volume and change from season to season. Jacana Camp is a truly water-oriented camp and offers mokoro and walking safaris all year round.

Jacana Camp is inclusive of accommodation, all meals and drinks (no premium drinks), activities and laundry service. Children as of 6 years are welcome here on request.
