Camp Wilderness Safaris
Situated about 25 kilometres west of Mombo, outside the
Moremi Game Reserve on the Jao flats, Jacana Camp is a truly water-oriented
camp and offers mokoro and walking safaris all year round. From about
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. All the big game can be found in the area - Elephant,
Lion, Leopard and Buffalo. Pels Fishing Owl is a favourite amongst birders, as
well as greater and lesser Jacanas. Jacana Camp has five meru-style tents.
Each tent is built on a wooden deck overlooking the floodplains and has an
en-suite bathroom with flush toilet and shower. The bathroom is enclosed, but
roofless. 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 cosy pub and lounge, with an area to sit around an open
fire under the stars.
The camp is set in the most densely populated wetland area for Sitatunga antelope and Red Lechwe. Hippos and crocodiles are regularly sited. In the dry season lechwe, tsessebe, elephant, wildebeest and zebra occur here, and lions, cheetah and leopard are often sited on the floodplains. This is an area of prime importance for a host of wetland bird species, including Wattled Cranes, Pel's Fishing Owls, both species of Jacanas as well as other seldom sighted species such as Rails, Crakes and Moorhens.
