Jacana Lodge in the Jao Concession in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, completed its rebuild on April 1.
The renovated lodge is now 100% solar powered, and has a new main area with a floating fire deck, pool and jetty area, and enlarged guest rooms with inside and outside showers, and outdoor baths.
The main area houses a two-storey building with a mezzanine level, the bottom floor of which has an open-plan lounge flowing on to the main deck, which links to the pool, jetty and new fire deck. There is a curio shop on the bottom floor, facing the lounge area. The mezzanine level has a bar, which leads upstairs to an open-plan dining room and lounge, with large folding stack doors that overlook the floodplain.
