Welcome to Jacana Camp 

  • Beautiful Delta Island setting 
  • Only 5 guest traditional tented rooms overhanging the water 
  • Excellent all year birdlife 
  • Swimming pool, double storey main are and dining room 
  • A remote unplugged safari camp 

For many years Jacana Camp has been a favourite for the directors of Tailormade Africa with its traditional pioneering safari atmosphere in a wonderfully remote location. In a safari age where this kind of safari experience is becoming much rarer it is pleasing to see that Jacana camp has stuck to its principles. 

The camp is set atop an island of incredible natural beauty and it is quite a sight when you arrive by boat to the main area jetty. With only 5 rooms this camp is the epitome of the intimate and exclusive safari camp that makes Botswana such an attractive destination for travellers. Whilst traditional in the sense of the tents being the Meru style tents synonymous with safari from yesteryear, the interior décor is just lovely and blends old school safari with the touches of class and comfort designed to please anyone. 

One of the things that stand out for us however is its ecologically sound operation of being a 24 hour solar power camp, having no Wi-Fi, internet or mobile phone reception. This is something to be embraced and to rejoice over. "Disconnect to reconnect" is the mantra of the operator that runs several properties in Botswana and we could not agree more. 

The wildlife viewing is good but you should understand that it is a predominantly wet safari area and as such the big game viewing may not be as regular as you would like and therefore Jacana should always be combined with a much drier camp to the north or south of the Delta. 

Oddly, there is no minimum age for this camp and whilst on the face of it would seem good for a family with young children we would advise against that in most cases due to the camp not being particularly set up for child safety. 

Jacana Camp is just wonderful. It may not be for everyone and it’s important to discuss your travel personality with the team at Tailormade Africa to ascertain in advance if this is the case to avoid disappointment.
