Mokoro (Dugout Canoe)
A mokoro activity is an iconic Okavango Delta activity; you will be guided by your specialist guide poler into shallow waters where a boat cannot reach.
Glide silently through the reeds and water lily “fields” and observe the wonderful aquatic flora and fauna, the pods of hippos wallowing in the channels and other game along the water’s edge.
Boating through the water channels will provide access to the concession for game drives during the wet season or just enjoy a leisurely boat trip down the water channels.
Observe the spectacular aquatic birdlife, especially during the months of August and September. Sip on a sundowner while you drift down the channel whilst enjoying the scenery and game sightings.
The Okavango Delta provides delightful fishing between the months of March and September. Try your hand at fishing for Tillapea, fly fishing for Tillapea and African Pike.

Jumbo Junction is your gateway to wildlife wonder. Situated on the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta, known particularly for its lions, the concession offers a diverse game viewing experience with large concentrations of wildlife year-round.

We encourage visits to our partners, Eco Exist and CLAWS, located just a stone’s throw away from the camp, where guests can witness first-hand the remarkable efforts in wildlife research and conservation. Experience the Village Tour, immersing you in the vibrant Delta communities. Hop on a traditional donkey cart to Gunotsoga, our closest village. Discover their daily lives and rich culture.
CLAWS (Communities Living Among Wildlife Sustainably) employ innovative approaches to promote human-wildlife coexistence. Our Seronga-based programme began in 2014 as a response to poisoning that killed 50% of the lion population along the northern edge of the Okavango Delta. Since our community-based work began, we have seen a meaningful change for good.
Community & Wildlife
A team of specialists work with the communities most impacted by human-wildlife conflicts. The approach is twofold – firstly, to protect the livestock by offering hands-on solutions to promote coexistence with wildlife, and secondly, to protect the habitat of the Okavango Delta and the wildlife that move into the community wildlife conservancy areas.
The Ecoexist Project seeks to reduce conflict and foster coexistence between elephants and people. In areas of heightened competition for access to water, food, and space, we find and facilitate solutions that work for both species.
Jumbo Junction, nestled in the open system conservation areas of the Northern Okavango Delta, serves as a gateway to this remarkable region. Located on the Mapula Concession or the Okavango Sekwana Concession, our lodge is positioned in the north of the Okavango Delta, adjacent to the renowned Duba Plains and Vumbura Plains concessions. Spanning an expansive 220,000 acres, this conservancy encompasses the upper reaches of the Selinda Spillway, connecting the Okavango Delta and the Linyanti River. Within this pristine landscape, Jumbo Junction stands as one of the top-notch new Delta safari camps.
