Jumbo Junctions luxury tented camp is situated in one of the last remaining areas where one can witness animals moving freely, as they wish to, in a truly pristine environment.
The flood spreads out in a great alluvial fan creating the world’s largest inland Delta, one of the best areas in the Okavango Delta to experience a Mokoro activity.
Jumbo Junction is situated 28km from the small village of Seronga. There is an airstrip in Seronga and easy road access to Jumbo Junction for self drive guests.
Jumbo Junction is located on a seasonal tributary of the Selinda spillway and has scenic views of deep water channels and riverine forest islands.
Jumbo Junction provides easy access to a 100 000 hectare, unfenced concession just waiting to be explored. The concession, NG12, has a diverse range of wildlife and its remote location ensures that your game drive vehicle will probably be the only one at game sightings that you experience, a privilege not often found at other locations in the Delta.
The flood spreads out in a great alluvial fan creating the world’s largest inland Delta, covering more than 15000 square kilometers. The spreading waters form lagoons, water channels, grassy swamps and riverine islands. Seventy percent of these riverine islands in the Delta began life as a termite mound. Due to the fact that this phenomena occurs during Botswana’s dry months, large concentrations of wildlife are attracted to the Delta.
Rivers and pools are strewn with lily pads and banked with floating papyrus and magnificent trees. These pristine waters create a remarkable habitat for numerous aquatic fauna and flora. The Delta is home to an immense variety of birds, some 450 species habitat Northern Botswana. This area becomes a birder’s paradise during the months of August and September when the floodwaters begin to recede and the concentration of fish increases. The Okavango Delta is home to the endangered Pels Fishing Owl, the world’s only fish eating owl.
The Delta flood attracts many larger herbivores including elephant, buffalo, hippo, giraffe and zebra. Due to this amount of prey the populations of carnivores are numerous and include lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dogs, hyena and crocodiles.
The most wonderful aspect of game encounters in the Delta is the fact that the animal populations have not been imported or controlled in anyway and the area is unfenced. Botswana is one of the last remaining areas where one can witness animals moving freely, as they wish to, in a truly pristine environment.
